Intermittent fasting (IF) has been around for a while. It took a big leap in popularity back in 2013 with “The 8-Hour Diet” by David Zinczenko and Peter Moore. Zinczenko and Moore claimed that eating all your daily food within an 8-hour period would result in dramatic weight loss.
Soon enough, celebrities like Hugh Jackman, Beyoncé, Nicole Kidman, Miranda Kerr, and Benedict Cumberbatch all reportedly adopted some form of the IF diet.
The diet consists of restricting the time period in which you eat food. In other words, you go through alternating cycles of fasting and eating. Unlike most other diets, it’s about limiting when you eat rather than what you eat. Currently, IF is one of the most popular eating styles out there.
