Find Out If Intermittent Fasting Fits Your Lifestyle
Sister site cited: www.huffingtonpost.com –
Pregnant women have extra energy needs, so if you’re starting a family, this is not the time to fast.
Ditto if you are under chronic stress and/ or not sleeping. Your body needs nurturing, not additional stress.
And if you’ve struggled with disordered eating in the past, you probably recognize that a fasting protocol could lead you down a path that might create further problems for you.
Why mess with your health?
Editor’s Note: John Berardi’s write-up on who should and should not do intermittent fasting was pretty much on point although he made a lot of excuses for people to use in order to avoid the healthy habit.
While I 100% agree that pregnant women should avoid intermittent fasting at all costs, I 100% disagree that people with performance oriented or client-facing jobs need to have caution.
From the experience of myself and thousands of others is heightened focus and concentration. What could be better in a competitive workplace?
But hey, no two people think alike. Here are some article highlights:
- You already do a form of intermittent fasting, it’s called sleeping.
- While intermittent fasting diets work for most people, it is not a good fit for everybody. Some will find intermittent fasting too hard or inconvenient to practice.
- There is more than one way to practice intermittent fasting, nobody has the “perfect” routine.
