Intermittent fasting (IF) is being used to help people lose weight, improve their health, and simplify their lives. Many studies have proven that it has potent effects on your body and brain and may even help you live longer.
What Is Intermittent Fasting (IF)?
It is a type of eating pattern that alternates between fasting and eating periods. It does not specify which foods to eat but rather when to eat them. In this regard, it is more accurately described as an eating pattern rather than a diet in the traditional sense. Fasting has been practiced for so long. There were no supermarkets, refrigerators, or food available all year for ancient hunter-gatherers. They sometimes didn’t find anything to eat.
That’s why humans have evolved to be able to survive for extended periods without food. Fasting on occasion is more natural than eating 3–4 (or more) meals per day. Fasting is also commonly practiced for religious or spiritual reasons in Islam, Christianity, Judaism, and Buddhism.
