For almost a decade, intermittent fasting has been gaining popularity and has become one of the most popular weight-loss trends. You might even be following this diet trend, without even realising it...
There is a big chance you grew up hearing that you shouldn't eat too late. This simple rule instructs us to stop eating several hours before bed and naturally creates a 10-15 hour fast (specially if we're not hungry first thing in the morning).
From 2002 onward, this pattern of eating has been known as "intermittent fasting" and it's been picking up speed as a weight-loss trend ever since.
To our grandmothers, it made perfect sense to give our bodies some rest – and take a break from eating. But there’s more to it than just common sense.
The human body operates in alignment with the sun. Our organs and hormones work differently in the morning than during the night.
Research shows that following a balanced diet and giving our body time to fast is a great weight-loss booster. Also, it can help with diabetes prevention, cardiovascular health and sleep quality.
In the evening, your digestion is slower and it can take longer to digest your last meal – especially if it was a big one.
Digesting food late into the night can effect your sleep and your energy levels the next day. Being underslept, however, can also contribute to bad food choices and weight gain.
Especially snacking in front of the TV... Try to correct this bad habit by making small, progressive changes.
