Intermittent fasting is officially the diet of the moment. Celebs like Jenna Jameson, Vanessa Hudgens, and Halle Berry all swear by it, and with tons of people pairing it with keto eating plans, it’s likely you know someone who’s doing it.
In case you’re unfamiliar, intermittent fasting (IF) is a type of eating plan that calls for periods of eating and fasting (in which you can only consume water, coffee, and tea). During the time periods you can eat, you can generally eat what you like, which is why the plan works for a lot of people. It’s simple, and you can tweak the schedule to fit your needs.
That being said, IF is definitely NOT for everyone. As WH previously reported, intermittent fasting can be a tough diet to follow if you’re the type who likes to snack and feels like you’re starving when you can’t. It’s also not a good idea for anyone with a history of disordered eating.
