Even though Intermittent Fasting is often categorized under diets, it is actually not a diet. It is a pattern of eating. But it is often put into the category of ‘diets’ because it is strongly associated with its weight loss benefits.
When you decide to implement intermittent fasting, unlike other diets it does not dictate what you can or cannot eat. It only stipulates when you can eat. In fact, there are many different schedules/routines that you can use to incorporate intermittent fasting into your life and we will discuss these at length in the next section.
One of the most appealing features about intermittent fasting is its simplicity and flexibility in integrating it into your lifestyle. First and foremost you do not have to make big changes in what you eat – one of the biggest hurdles in other diets. Secondly intermittent fasting can be adapted to work around your lifestyle. Both these factors combined makes this strategy unique and one that most people won’t get tired of or fall off the wagon.
