Intermittent fasting (IF) is one of the trendiest eating styles of the moment—and for good reason, writes Stephanie Eckelkamp, wellness editor at MBG Health, in an article posted on their site today. Intermittent Fasting, explains the article, also called time-restricted feeding, refers to going without food for a certain amount of time, and it can yield a number of impressive results: weight loss, increased fat burn, improved cognitive functioning, reduced inflammation, and potentially even increased longevity.
We agree with all of that so far. After all, IF has kicked in on Season 48 of the Football Fan’s Diet and I am losing weight.
The article provides a lot of reasons why intermittent fasting can be a powerful tool in your arsenal to fight fat. If done over the long term, Eckelkamp writes, some experts believe intermittent fasting may help prevent cardiovascular disease and diabetes, and reverse gut dysbiosis (gut imbalances) or issues like leaky gut, as it gives your hard-working digestive system a break.
It seems that the benefits go on and on.
