About Intermittent Fasting
Intermittent fasting is a lifestyle that incorporates periods of “fasting” into your daily eating pattern. Basically, your daily caloric intake will take place in a particular time frame throughout the day or what's referred to as the “feeding phase.” When that time frame is reached or closed, there will be no more calories consumed and you will enter the “fasting” phase.
This is not a crash diet; this is a long term healthy lifestyle choice. There are several
methods or variations within Intermittent Fasting. One of the more common approaches, and a great starting point when entering the world of Intermittent Fasting, is the - 16/8 fasting-to-feeding ratio, popularized by Martin Berkhan and
his Leangains method. Intermittent Fasting requires minimal amounts of change or disruption to everyday life; in fact it simplifies things quite a bit, yet it has the ability to massively improve overall health and well being. As of late, “IF” is quickly becoming recognized within the medical community for its ability to lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure and stabilize blood sugar as well as its anti-aging and anti-tumor, cancer fighting properties. The biological effect that Intermittent Fasting has on the body is truly phenomenal. Yoshinori Ohsumi, a Japanese scientist, was awarded the Nobel Prize in October of 2016 for scientifically substantiating that fasting is good for one's health. http://wearechange.org/nobel-prize-winner-scientifically-proves-fasting-good-health/
