Intermittent Fasting – Skipping Breakfast Can Help You Lose Weight

Simple Nourished Living 

Intermittent Fasting

  • Daily: 12-16 hour fasts
  • Every other day: 16-20 hour fasts
  • Once or twice per week: 20-24 hour fasts
  • Once a week to every other week: 24-36 hour fasts
  • Monthly: 36-72 hour fast


Eating healthy is simple in theory, but it can be incredibly hard to stick to in reality.

One of the main obstacles is all the work required to plan for and cook healthy meals.

With intermittent fasting you need to plan, cook and clean up after fewer meals, saving time and money.

As I get older, I need to eat less to maintain my weight. Skipping a few meals a week is easier for me than trying to constantly shrink my portions or completely eliminate certain foods from my diet.

I’m no longer AFRAID OF BEING HUNGRY. I’ve learned that being a little hungry isn’t life-threatening. While fasting my hunger ebbs and flows and is completely manageable.

I’m satisfied with less food now when I do eat than I used to be. Maybe my stomach has shrunk or become more sensitive, but I feel more content with less.

Intermittent Fasting has helped me with self-restraint and eating is more fun because I can eat whatever I want within reason.

Intermittent Fasting (IF) seems so much more natural than other forms of calorie restriction I’ve tried.

My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
