Here’s your free introductory guide to intermittent fasting!

Intermittent fasting is one of the biggest weight-loss trends to arise in recent years. Yet it’s not a fad. New research is showing the profound benefits of eating only during limited hours. In this episode, I chat with FASTer Way to Fat Loss certified coach... Le Bergin …about a proven strategy to fat loss called intermittent fasting

Intermittent fasting is restricting the amount of time you eat into a compressed window of time to allow your digestive system to rest when you are not eating. Basically, you eat the same amount of food every day, just in a shorter time.

Intermittent fasting encourages the body to burn fat while maintaining lean muscle mass, but because you’re mixing higher calorie consumption with lower calorie consumption periods, you don’t get as hungry as when you’re not eating. Unlike restricting calories, intermittent fasting does NOT lower the body’s basal metabolic rate long-term; in fact, it increases it! This makes intermittent fasting an incredibly effective weight loss strategy, even for obese people. Studies show IF to be more effective for weight loss than calorie restriction. Not only that, intermittent fasting is better at helping people maintain lean muscle mass than diets that simply restrict calories.
