Day 10 – Time to start intermittent fasting (IF)

I read a new article about intermittent fasting in the Washington Post. I had been considering doing it, and yesterday I woke up at 8am but just wasn’t hungry at all until about 1pm. So, I thought, why not? I know others who have tried it with success, so when I happened across the article about the health benefits, I took it as a sign. lol

Here’s the article:


I’m going to do 16:8. I was never much of a breakfast eater, but was convinced that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” Where did that idea come from, anyway?

Here’s another good article that explains more about IF. (It’s also where I snagged this great graphic.)

The premise behind IF is that it lowers your insulin levels so your body starts to release stored sugar and burn it as fat.
