I was minding my own p's and q's (as I always do) today when I was approached with an interesting question. What was my opinion on intermittent fasting as a technique for health and wellness (and of course weight loss)? For those of you out there who have never heard of (consider yourself lucky) I.F. (intermittent fasting as the cool kids call it) it involves systematic periods of fasting (no eating) followed by periods of eating....so....someone who follows I.F. would theoretically fast for 16 hours (or whatever) and eat for 8 let's say.
My opinion - fasting of the non-spiritual type (and I am seriously on the fence as of late on that one) is a recipe for a diabetic disaster. You fast once already - it's called sleep - and trust me once is enough. For all the fadster's out there remember, today's weight loss is tomorrow's health crisis.
The Revolution cannot see anyone not trying to sell you something (the dead giveaway) recommending this type of nutritional approach as healthy, safe, or a gateway to long term success.
