What is intermittent fasting?
Intermittent Fasting (IF) is a term used to explain an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of eating and periods of fasting (abstinence from food and caloric beverages). The therapeutic benefits have been documented for thousands of years and have shown that this way of eating is deeply rooted in our biology.
Philosophers like Socrates, Hippocrates, Plato and Paracelsus even believed in the health benefits of regular fasting.
