How healthy is it to intermittent fast? And what time of day should you do it? According to Dr. Emily Poccia of Wildcraft Medicine in La Jolla, California, there are more benefits to eating earlier in the day, typically for 8 hours followed by 16 hours of fasting.
Here’s how intermittent fasting can be really helpful to the body:
- It helps re-establish your metabolism.
- Balances your blood sugar levels.
- Allows your digestive tract to rest in between eating.
Many of us are busy and snack throughout the day. However, not eating solid meals causes our blood sugar to stay up so it never drops and rises. Plus, our guts are always working.
