Everybody knows the #1 way to lose weight is to limit how much you eat.
But what most people don’t know is that not only is this approach good for their waistline …
It’s also good for longevity, delayed ageing, and keeping our heart strong and our brain sharp.
See, for many decades, scientists have been studying different ways of effective weight loss.
And one of these ways not only has been proven to be great for getting in shape…
But also keeping your body strong and healthy for a long time.
You might have heard of something called Intermittent Fasting.
Basically, it means you only eat food during limited hours of the day.
I.e. Instead of doing what most people do and eating breakfast at 8am, lunch at 1pm, dinner at 7pm, and snacking in between …
You might eat the same amount of food but in a much shorter window. I.e. Between 12pm and 6pm.
Many people use this strategy to get in shape, as it allows them to eat bigger meals every time they sit down at the dinner table.
But there’s much more to intermittent fasting than just a thin waist.
According to researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago, time-restricted eating or intermittent fasting can help decrease the risk of getting type 2 diabetes.
Another study suggested that intermittent fasting helps fight inflammation and makes your body more resistant to free-radicals.
Free-radicals are like tiny little ninjas that are undermining your health as you age...
The more of them float around in your bloodstream, the more trouble they cause.
And the more often you eat, the more of them are released.
But if you eat the same amount of food, but do it in a shorter time period …
And do fasting longer, your body produces fewer free radicals, keeping these little ninjas in check.
Which means you stay healthier, and the ageing process slows down.
The good thing about Intermittent Fasting is you don’t have to deliberately count calories, or restrict any food you like to eat.
And there are loads of ways you can structure your mealtimes.
According to the Harvard medical school, the easiest and most common way of following Intermittent Fasting is to eat between hours of 9 am and 5 pm.
If your schedule doesn’t allow for this particular window, you can also try skipping breakfast or dinner all together once or twice a week.
As you know, I’m not pro-diet.
And certainly against any crazy fat loss gimmicks out there.
But considering the vastness of the research suggesting intermittent fasting can be extremely beneficial for health and longevity... it might be worth a try.
I know I’ll be giving it a go.
