Tips to eat on a schedule and take up Intermittent fasting

Intermittent fasting has become quite popular especially since celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Miranda Kerr and Beyoncé adopted some kind of IF diet. But how can real people start eating on a schedule?

Although intermittent fasting (IF) has been around for long, its popularity started to grow in 2013 with “The 8-Hour Diet” by David Zinczenko and Peter Moore, and even more when celebrities –such as Jennifer Aniston, Gisele Bündchen, Kourtney Kardashian and Scarlett Johansson, among others– started adopting some form of intermittent fasting.

Intermittent fasting is a diet based on restricting the time in which you eat food, instead of restricting the type of food, you restrict the times when you eat. Studies suggest that it will help you lose weight, improve your metabolism and lengthen your life span.

If you are keen on giving it a try, here are some tips!

How to get started

First of all, consult a doctor whether it is safe for you –this diet could be dangerous for people with low blood sugar. There are several patterns to schedule your IF, the most popular being the 16/8 method where you would fast for 16 hours and eat within an 8-hour window. People are generally advised to eat from noon until 8 p.m.

How to manage intermittent fasting

It can be difficult to adjust in the beginning: irritability, fatigue and hunger are what you can experience when you are trying to take up intermittent fasting.

People who shouldn’t attempt IF

There’s a lot of debate regarding intermittent fasting, so make sure to contact your GP before embarking on IF.
