When it comes to Weight Loss, Intermittent Fasting is quickly becoming one of the more popular ways to decrease your caloric intake. But there are other benefits as well.

Intermittent Fasting is an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of eating and periods of time going without food. Most of us already “fast” every day while we are sleeping and extending those hours before you eat once waking is a great way to start training your body to fast.

There are a variety of different schedules such as fasting for 12 hours all the way up to fasting for more than 24 hours. Type in Intermittent Fasting into any browser and you can find a variety of schedules. Find one that is easy to implement and start slowly. Intermittent Fasting isn’t for everyone, make sure you are getting enough calories in during your hours of eating and be sure to prioritize protein.

16:8 is the most popular timing, fasting for 16 hours and eating during an 8 hour window. This is also one of the more effective timings, if you have difficulty fasting for 15 hours, another option is the 14:10 and is probably closer to what you are naturally doing already.
