Unlike traditional diets that often call for a dramatic change in what you eat, intermittent fasting shifts the focus to when you eat. It’s a way of scheduling your meals in an effort to speed metabolism and maximize weight loss and fat burning results.
With a growing segment of the population advocating the positive health effects of intermittent fasting, more people are turning to this eating approach to not only lose weight and fat, but also improve the way they feel and perform. In addition to helping individuals achieve their personal health goals, many claim that an intermittent fasting program is easier to follow than more traditional diets.
Currently, there are several versions of intermittent fasting programs being used by health-conscious people throughout the world. However, the principal theory remains the same: Eat all the (preferably healthy) food you want during a specific time period, and eliminate all, or most calories during the period that calls for fasting.
