Intermittent fasting has been a diet trend that’s taken fitness enthusiasts by a storm. While many people who have tried intermittent fasting have reported its benefits, others have come forward and disparaged it as a form of losing weight. Actors and celebrities also have tried their hands at intermittent fasting. First, let’s understand what intermittent fasting really is.
What is intermittent fasting?
Intermittent fasting is a cycle of various meal timing schedules that oscillate between a period of fasting and eating. In simple words, a person who is observing intermittent fasting eats for a limited period of the day, and fasts for the remaining time. Time-restricted feeding is claimed to be linked to a number of benefits including weight loss, regulation of insulin levels, boosting metabolism, and improving heart health. Usually, people fast for 14-16 hours a day after consuming the last meal of the day. Inadvertently, this leads to missing out on a healthy breakfast. The demerits of intermittent fasting are still being studied and it is recommended that you seek the guidance of your health care provider before engaging in intermittent fasting.
