So, you want to begin an intermittent fasting plan and embark on a leaner, healthier and longer life? You probably have already heard about this wildly popular health and fitness diet plan. Intermittent fasting continues to be one of the top Google trending diet searches of the year. The truth is that intermittent fasting programs are popular because they are much easier to maintain than traditional, highly restrictive, calorie-controlled diets. Scientific studies show that intermittent fasting can have extraordinary health benefits such as:
Promoting weight and body fat loss (especially stubborn belly fat)
Stabilizing blood sugar levels, reducing insulin resistance, and managing diabetes
Increasing resistance to stress and suppressing inflammation
Improving cardiovascular health including lowering resting heart rate, blood pressure and “bad” cholesterol levels
Supporting brain health and improving memory
Fighting premature aging
Fostering a healthier gut
Boosting psychological well-being
