Why You Should Try Intermittent Fasting in The New Year

The New Year is coming. Many of us will be setting new goals and weight loss may very likely be one of those goals. If you have this goal in mind, you may want to consider adding intermittent fasting as part of your weight-loss approach. While the concept of fasting may sound a little crazy and extreme for you, the truth is that it is really a simple eating schedule that allows for an eating window and fasting window. And many people are already doing intermittent fasting, without really knowing it. 

According to a recent article found in BloodSugarDiabetes.org called, "What I learned from 2 Years of Intermittent Fasting", intermittent fasting is another tool you should consider in your battle to get in better shape. Here are some of our favorite highlights from the article:

“I’ve been experimenting with intermittent fasting for more than 2 years and this is what I’ve learned…”

“It’s not a diet, it’s just a pattern of eating that reduces your eating window each day to about 8 hours.”

“With intermittent fasting, I have been able to increase strength, reduce body fat, and maintain good health while spending less time eating each day. If you can get the same results by making life simpler and only eating twice per day, why would you make life more complex by eating three, four, or five times per day?”

“Intermittent fasting is just another tool in your toolbox. Just as eating a healthy diet of real, whole foods is another tool. And exercising regularly is another tool. And meditating or doing yoga to reduce stress is another tool. And sleeping at least 8 hours per night is another tool.”

“…All I know is that, as one piece of my overall strategy, it has worked for me. It works because it fits my lifestyle. It works because it is simple enough for me to not spend much energy thinking about it. And it works because it aligns well with my diet, which is mostly Paleo, and my training style, which is mostly Olympic weightlifting and other compound movements.”

“It might be easier to cite a study or follow the advice of some diet guru, but the only way to get results is to test, adjust, and repeat. As someone who often cites academic research in their articles, I have the utmost respect for science. But you can’t let a research study make choices for you. They can inform you, sure. But the only way to make progress and change your life is to make new choices, take action, and make adjustments based on the results.”
