One person’s Intermittent Fasting journey

We all have to start somewhere and there really is no better time than now. If you’re considering it stop thinking about it and just do it. That little voice in your head that tells you tomorrow is a better time is lying to you so just start it now. If you were going to have lunch just skip it. If you’re just waking up and looking for breakfast just skip it. It’s way easier than you think and the sooner you start the better you’ll feel.

I’ve been considering starting intermittent fasting for two reasons. The first one is a stubborn 15 pounds that I’ve not been able to shift after the birth of my second daughter. For the first time in my life, I find myself near the top end of what the United Kingdom National Health Service (NHS) call a healthy BMI.
“Don’t trust scales, trust how your body feels,” I hear my friends commenting. Well, the scales are saying the same thing that my feelings are saying.
But more than the weight, I’m interested in the long-term effects on our health that scientists have been uncovering in experimental studies of different fasting regimes.
