Today’s question, is about intermittent fasting. So, people ask a lot about this. I have you expressed that I think intermittent fasting is beneficial in the past, and I just wanted to talk about it a little bit today. So, there’s different diets that promote intermittent fasting.
where you pretty much don’t eat all day, and you have one meal at night there is also the 5:2 diet I think it’s called where you eat like as many calories as you can for five days, and then two days you eat 500 or something like that. I’m so intimate fasting isn’t something new, it’s something that we have done our whole lives. Not only that, but it’s something that existed as fundamental rituals in some religions. It’s something that you know the body naturally does, and it’s not really like a diet. it’s more of listening to your body, and it kind of comes into play with. Like, intuitive eating and things like that.
So, I don’t think that you should force your body to intermittently fast, but what I do think is that when you listen to your body you’ll realize that you know most people most thin people will listen to their bodies and fast when they’re not hungry.
So, if you’ve ever had friend and it’s like 10 o’clock or noon or something like that and they’ve just been so busy and they’re just like oh’! I haven’t eaten anything all day. because, their body wasn’t telling them to eat, they weren’t hungry, and they were just busy and they’re focused on other things. that’s kind of an explanation intermittent fasting.
So, if you go to bed or you stay… You stop eating… you eat dinner at 5:00 p.m. … you wake up and you don’t eat something until 8:00 p.m. you technically be intermittent fasting for 15 hours. So, from 5 p.m. to 8 and 15 hours which I think 15 hours is like generally how much people will intermittent fast the biggest thing with this.
Though, is people are very brainwashed from diets, from the media, from having the eat 10 mini meals every single day or else, your metabolism is going to slow down and you’re going to die right like we’ve all heard that that need to eat 10 times a day and you need to eat consistently or your body’s going to go into starvation mode.
So, the only thing I really have to say about this”: is just listen to your body. So, if you wake up in the morning, and you know some diet or some person is telling you that you need to eat at 5 o’clock in the morning or else, you’re going to go into starvation mode and die but you’re not hungry just eat when you’re hungry.
So, wake up in the morning drink a bunch of water to get your body hydrated, and then wait until you are hungry to eat your first meal. And wait until you’re hungry to eat your next meal.
So, like a long time ago, we were roaming the planet… you know when we were not living by the standards of society and all their bring and washing and diets, we didn’t have three meals a day like these. were put into place by the marketing of food manufacturers, to make us form our eating habits around certain times of the day, which helps the restaurants and the fast food industries sell more food and grocery stores.
Because, people are like well’’ what am I going to have for breakfast..? What am I going to have for lunch..? For dinner..? It’s all these different types of food. So, like you have your breakfast foods, you have your lunch food, you have your dinner foods… and generally those are what people at least in USA on a standard American diet will eat for those specific meals. They’ll wake up the hunger Girt, because, it’s a breakfast food. you know we’re the hub oatmeal, or fruit, or eggs bacon or something like that… they’ll go out to eat and they’ll get a huge bacon and egg platter or whatever for lunch to have like a sandwich or something like that…
They’ll bring to work with like chips, or they’ll have like a hotdog or something that’s more of like a lunchtime meal, and then for dinner they’ll you know make something at home that’s like a stew or pizza or whatever.
So, it’s really just food manufacturers marketing tactics that have placed meal times around everything, and the dining industry took advantage of that. And they make this into, ”you have to eat ten times a day”, or this is going to happen to you. Or you know now there’s intermittent fasting diets and things like that but nothing is really new. I mean, generally if you just listen to your body, and you go intuitive eating and how your body feels and you eat as much as you want, everything will work out a hundred percent.
So, I wouldn’t say like force your body to intermittently fast, I mean, it is good to not eat right before bedtime or anything like that. But just make sure that you’re eating enough at dinner that you’re full and satisfied, and that you can go to bed and not be like starving.
And then when you wake up, drink a quart of water.’’ do a couple things.’’ and then, once you feel hungry eat.’’ and then, once you feel hungry again eat. So, don’t force your body to intermittent fast it’s just something that we naturally do day to day and I think that that’s the healthiest way to go about it.
