You know the expression 'like a kid in a candy store'? Is that how many of us are eating these days? Over-stimulated, over-stretched and leaning on food not only for sustenance, but relief and comfort wherever and whenever we want...
As a card-carrying emotional eater I've found that the only times in my life I've ever had any control over my weight is when I'm eating within a strict structure and that 'structure' usually means a rigid regime of counting points, macros, weighing my food, measuring every ingredient to the micro mg, cutting out entire food groups, blending my meals into some sort of 'shake' that could be better described as sludge and more - all of which is unsustainable in the long-term.
I've been reading more and more about intermittent fasting (IF) and the benefits are seemingly endless and require little more effort than setting yourself an 'eating window' and sticking to it. Traditional eating habits include a breakfast, lunch and dinner with snacks inbetween and you could time these meals at 8am, 1pm and 8pm or thereabouts. With IF the eating window is 12pm to 8pm.
Tune in to find out how I'm going to ease my way into IF from otherwise random eating habits and what the real benefits might be to making this slight change to my eating patterns.
