The key words being 'healthy diet'. There's a difference between starving yourself, cutting calories, and fasting.
Fasting is your time ⏱ between meals. This doesn't mean you eat any less when you do you, it just means the periods where you are not eating are longer.
Our body can only maximize its ability to repair, revitalize, eliminate toxins and diseases, and improve the cognitive process when it's not focused on digestion.
We have fallen victim to a 🍿 snacking culture.
There are snack foods everywhere we look in case, goodness forbid, we feel a tingle of hunger.
We munch on handfuls of nuts, cookies, snack bars, chips, candies. We order take out plus a snack for later. We grab 🍫 candy bars and shakes as snacks while waiting in line at the super market.
But how often do you stop to ask yourself 'am I really hungry right now?'! A 16 hour daily fast is a great way to get the benefits of fasting while maintaining a healthy 🕺 social lifestyle.
What this means is that you would eat as you would normally, with no caloric restrictions or change to your diet, within an 8 hour period.
You can have a morning tea or ☕ coffee (black, unsweetened), then the first meal, lunch, at 12pm. You have between 12pm and 8pm to eat lunch, dinner, or whatever else you would normally eat. 8pm to 12pm ther next day you avoid any more eating or snacking.
Or if you're a big breakfast 🍳 person then you would eat at say 6am. Plus 8 hours means your last meal will be at 2pm. Between 6am and 2pm you would consume a full days worth of food and calories, and 2pm until 6am the next day your body will be in recovery mode.
This gives your body enough time to focus on healing without taking energy for digestion.
When you give your body a break, you'll notice you look and feel younger too!
This is because the body will have time to eliminate old and dead cells, it will have time to repair anything sick or broken, and it will improve the quality of your thinking, a lot of time repairing the brain along the way!
My favourite library whenever I have the chance to hang out in Paris (Montmartre). I was actually born in France. My dad is French Canadian and my mother Irish-Catalan, but I now live in the UK near London (I guess that makes me some kind of international bastard). What's your favourite place/city in the world?
