Dieting often requires round-the-clock surveillance of our natural cravings. We can’t stop wanting ice cream, pizza or burgers, but to be healthy, we have to limit ourselves. After every daily hurdle, it’s natural to want to reward ourselves with food. It’s also really easy to binge eat, even though we know we don’t really need all that bread or the extra sides.
Most of us are always striving for a balance between eating healthy and still managing to enjoy our food. If only there were a way to combine dieting with the occasional indulgence (and I still do stress occasional here), then we could have our cake and lose weight too! In that case, intermittent fasting may be exactly what you’re looking for.
