For good reason, Intermittent Fasting (IF) is one of the most talked about health trends of the moment. Previously, calorie restriction was thought to be one of the best ways to reverse the clock of aging, but intermittent fasting could be even better!

Intermittent fasting is typically restricting your eating hours to 8 hours per day and your fasting hours to 16 hours per day. During the fast, it is preferable to drink lots of water and even drink a bit of black coffee if you enjoy your morning jolt!

There are many different structures to an intermittent fasting regimen, and it can be tailored to any lifestyle.

There are a ton of benefits that come with a 16 hour fast, but our top 5 are:

      Weight and fat loss!

      Helps decrease cholesterol.

      Helps prevent type 2 diabetes.

      Helps to improve blood pressure!

      A recent Harvard study showed that IF helped in preventing disease and promoting overall health!
