DO LESS. BENEFIT MORE. Better health and weight loss are yours through intermittent fasting.
You already fast every night when you're sleeping. Why not try extending that fast by a few hours? It's a simple strategy, and it's effective. Some might even call it enjoyable as pounds slip away, sleep improves, and brain fog lifts--and all you've done is skip breakfast!
You don't need to obsess over calorie tracking or endure constant hunger to lose weight--fasting is a more effective and more sustainable diet, and it won't leave you feeling hungry. By shortening the window of time during which you eat food, for example only eating two meals per day within an 8-hour time period, you are well on your way to a more healthy, adaptable body.
Intermittent fasting aids weight loss, and is a key therapeutic tool for a variety of hormone- and health-related concerns. Decrease insulin resistance, reduce inflammation, improve cardiovascular health, protect the brain from disease, and more.
