Intermittent Fasting....

🤔What is it?

It is a way of eating whereby you split the day into eating and “fasting” periods.

➡️Fasting has been a practice throughout human evolution. Ancient hunter-gatherers didn’t have supermarkets, refrigerators or food available year-round. Sometimes they couldn’t find anything to eat. As a result, humans evolved to be able to function without food for extended periods of time.

Some of the more common methods are 16:8, or 5:2. These involve fasting for 16 hours and eating within a window of 8 hours (effectively skipping breakfast, (16:8)) or eating a reduced amount of calories for 2 days and then normally for the other 5 days (5:2).

➡️By reducing your calorie intake, all of these methods should cause weight loss as long as you don’t compensate by eating much more during the eating periods. In fact, fasting from time to time is more natural than always eating 3–4 (or more) meals per day.
