There are many reasons to consider intermittent fasting as a diet choice, below we dig into some of the most significant reasons why many are turning to it as a way to enhance their day-to-day performance.
Let’s be honest, the morning is when we’re most rushed and generally pressured to get on with things like getting ready for work, being somewhere for a certain time, getting the kids ready and off to school. It’s also the easiest time of day to slip up when it comes to a food choice. Making that bad choice is often a quick way to fill our belly but also the one that is most likely to cause inflammation, bloating and bog you down for the entire day.
When you’re in the routine of fasting, and you start the day with water and teach your body to run on energy sources you carry with you already (natural fats). You’ll be amazed at how the body adapts and gets you through the morning.
We’re huge advocates of taking the complexity out of your life, we make 1000’s of choices every day and reducing the number of things you need to think about when it comes to food and nutrition is key to making it a sustainable habit.
My morning routine is as simple as grabbing a pint of water, and sticking the kettle on for my favourite brew – then on with the day!
There is science behind this HERE. Scientist have measured the impact of intermittent fasting and it has been proven to help with weight regulation, fitness and longevity. Doctors also believe that the survival instinct in the body found during fasting also help immunity to flu and infection.
Easier than a Diet
We all know that keeping to a diet, in the real world between your job and other responsibilities is incredibly hard. The reality of intermittent fasting is that it’s so easy to do, doing nothing is much easier than preparation of the ‘right thing’ for your particular diet.
Intermittent Fasting can be used as a method to induce a calorie reduction diet, buy choosing meals which bring you into a calorie deficit for the day OR can be used to maintain as you are by managing those to meals to an equal level to your usage of calories.
