Intermittent Fasting

I have been practicing Intermittent Fasting for almost 6 months.  I’m down 16 pounds, decreased thyroid medication and off antidepressants.  Amazing energy and overall I feel terrific.

I’d like to talk about IF (Intermittent Fasting) in a practical sense.

If you search the web you are going to find all sort s of interesting and often contradictory information.  I’d like to talk about IF from my personal, first hand perspective.

Bit of a disclaimer, I am not a doctor, nutritionist or scientist.  I am also not trying to sell you anything!  I would just like to share my own personal opinion about IF and why I have fallen so head over heals in love with this lifestyle.

Hello, my name is Renee and I am a serial yo-yo dieter.  I wasn’t always a yo-yo dieater but the seeds were sown at a young age.  I thought I found my holy grail before separating from my husband.  I had been a part time vegetarian for a very long time, transitioning to full time when we separated.  Being vegetarian allowed me to reach a healthy weight after two pregnancies and maintain that weight.  I met my husband and eventually transitioned back to the typical Standard American Diet (SAD). Years of yo-yo dieting lead to another search for yet another diet but something happened.

I was on the prowl for yet another quick fix, while researching I found something interesting.  Over and over again I found a common denominator, many popular high fat, moderate protein diets (Bulletproof, Keto, HFLC) strongly advocated IF in unison with following their diets to enhance results.  I was finding very inconsistent instructions on how to IF but consistently strongly advocating how wonderful it was.

I started researching IF alone without the acompanying diet.  There is a lot of amazing scientific research out there and I have absolutely no doubt in the world that this is the most healthy way of life to follow.

Stay tuned.
