Intermittent fasting, sounds like a pretty scary and difficult new weight loss craze that is sweeping the nation.
However, intermittent fasting isn't new, and isn't really the next fad diet. Human history shows that fasting has always been a part of livelihoods. Especially in times of feast or famine, you could go days without food, then have an abundance of food.
The term "intermittent" means to occur at different intervals. In the form of intermittent fasting, this means that we are fasting for a set period of time, and feeding in another set period of time.
For instance, you may fast (not eat) for 16 hours, then eat in an 8 hour time window. 16 hours can seem like a long time, but if you are sleeping during half of it, then you just don't eat the first part and last part of each day.
