Have you heard about the intermittent fasting, the new diet trend that’s joined the ranks of keto and other diets? Intermittent fasting, or IF, has quickly become one of the most popular diets in the United States for managing weight and improving health. As many as 10% of Americans who diet practice IF.
A big part of IF’s popularity is its simplicity. What’s not appealing about the possibility of losing weight and getting healthier without having to prepare special meals or count calories? Instead of putting restrictions on what you eat, IF puts restrictions on when you eat. You eat your meals at designated intervals and enough time passes between meals that your body consumes all available calories and starts burning stored fat for energy.
