WHAT I’M LIKING ABOUT INTERMITTENT FASTING
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.
