I have been intermittent fasting for over one year. I skip breakfast each day and eat two meals, the first around 1pm and the second around 8pm. Then, I fast for 16 hours until I start eating again the next day at 1pm.
I was skeptical, but it turns out there is something to be said for a daily fast, preferably one lasting at least 16 hours. I've long thought the human body was not meant to run on empty, that fasting was done primarily for religious reasons or political protest.
Intermittent Fasting, or "IF", is a relatively new craze that is used as a supplement to your diet. It revolves around the timing of your food intake, and can have some benefits in the long run. There are quite a few people misinformed on fasting, so we'll clear that up and explain how intermittent fasting can be useful.
