If you’re focused on weight this New Year, You aren’t alone. Every year, after the feasting of the holidays—many make a resolution to do better. To eat better, lose weight, and feel better. Gyms, trendy eating habits, and giving up bad habits are all main strategies. One eating pattern supported by research and growing in popularity is intermittent fasting. Different people have different strategies (some skipping whole days), but according to one study it can be as simple as shrinking the hours that you eat. Whatever strategy you choose, make sure to support your diet with a good daily multivitamin like Triple Strength Antioxidant.
Limiting when you eat to only 6 hours a day, and fasting the other 18, (or 8/16) may be a strategy for successful weight loss, according to a new study. A review of research suggests that intermittent fasting may support better blood pressure and longevity (although that could be the weight loss).
It’s not just a way to trick you into eating less. Some research suggests that it may be important to “rest” your gut bacteria. Constantly snacking/feeding these bacteria may trigger behavior on their part that leads to an unhealthy reaction to food—our gut biome influences signalling to our body about storing energy, sugar needs, and more. It’s why someone can change their diet but still be unhealthy. Supporting the gut biome by fasting may help those struggling with change.
Researchers recommend doctor supervised fasting, and a gradual step-up plan.
If you’ll be eating less in 2020, make sure you make what you eat count, and add support to your diet with a high-quality multivitamin like Triple Strength Antioxidant.
