(IF) or Intermittent Fasting is not a diet, but instead a pattern of eating. (IF) is when you eat a normal amount of food in a smaller time frame, while adding “intermittent” times to fast within your day. You may be the kind of person who does not feel hungry early in the morning, and you enjoy getting up and starting work early without eating. You grab a black coffee or cold refreshing drink to start your day, and do not have your first meal until 12:00 noon. Your eating window is from 12:00 noon to 8:00 pm, which provides you a window of opportunity to eat for 8 hours and another window to fast for the next 16 hours. This is intermittent fasting!
Today (IF) is a way of life for many, it can be done a few days a week or for those looking for extraordinary results 5-7 days a week. (IF) has also become a new strategy to staying healthy and lean. My position on health and fitness is, go to your grave lean not over weight or obese. Point being, you can control food, don’t let food control you. And do it in a way that supports both your health and overall well-being, and fasting is one way to go about it.
One of the reasons I fast most days is because I like the way it makes my body feel, as well as the energy it provides. It also provides nutritional freedom where I can get my micro-macronutrients in within an eight (8) window of time, allowing me to accomplish many more tasks within any given day. And I’m much more alert throughout the day.

In order for Intermittent Fasting to work, you must incorporate a high quality healthy meal plan that includes good macro and micronutrients within your eight (8) hour window when eating.
