With all the conflicting dietary advice out there, it’s hard to know what to write off as a cheap gimmick and what might actually be worth a shot.
When I discovered intermittent fasting — the practice of eating only within a specific window every day and drinking only calorie-free liquids the rest of the time — I was intrigued and decided to give it a try.
I worked up to a 20:4 schedule, meaning I spend 20 hours a day in a fasting state and make sure I do all of my eating in the remaining four-hour window.
While it’s not for everyone, it’s a practice that I loved so much and saw so many results from that I still do it today.
