Fasting has been around for ages. However, the 14/10 and 16/8 intermittent fasting (IF) methods have been gaining popularity over the last few years. Both of these are similar but quite different. Which method to follow? Do they work? Are there any downsides? We answer all these questions in this article.
Many people fast with the goal of losing fat. Intermittent fasting has an impressive list of benefits, including improved cognition, better cardiovascular health, and overall weight loss. It also reduces insulin resistance and boosts longevity.
What is Intermittent Fasting? Intermittent fasting is a diet plan where you fast for a certain number of hours per day and eat only during a fixed feeding window. This method helps shed weight and improve overall health. In this eating pattern, you are only allowed to eat during a specific period, and the eating window length depends on the fasting method you choose.
