If you’re intermittently fasting, I have a question for you:
Have you learned how to eat properly for your body yet?
“I.F.” is very popular right now, and there are many benefits to it.
You probably will see, or you may have already felt some of those.
But if you’re jumping onto the I.F. bandwagon from any of the other ones, or as a first time leap of faith, proceed with open eyes.
Any change that you make will almost always bring short-term results, especially if it’s a change from eating non-foods to real foods.
That’s why no matter whether you try Veganism, Carnivor-ism, Paleo-ism, Low-Carb-ism, or any other -ism, if you’re switching from the Standard American Diet, of course you’ll feel great in the first one to three months.
I.F. may provide some of those very same short-term results, and, it may even be a strategy that works for you in the long-term.
Just be sure that what you’re putting into your body while you are in your feeding window also works for you long-term.
Losing a few pounds after two months of I.F. isn’t so great if you’re still ingesting glyphosate in your Cheerios for six hours every day. I.F. by itself is not the magic pill.
On the other hand, coupling thoughtful intermittent fasting with learning to listen to what kinds of fuel your body works best on can be a win-win for a long time to come.
