The fact is, fasting is a natural practice and most of us have fasted intentionally or unintentionally before. IF is simply a more structured and effective approach for people who want to manage their weight. Although most average people like me will not experience any side effects from fasting, if you have any underlying health conditions or taking certain medications, then it would be wise to consult a doctor or dietitian before you start.
If you’re planning to try IF, make sure you eat healthy and stay hydrated throughout the day. You can’t just fast for 16 hours and then eat as much junk food as you want and then expect to get healthier and lose weight. That’s not how it works.
What you eat matters.
When you eat matters.
The quality of food your consume is key.
So go ahead and fast.
