Intermittent Fasting

Mixing eating and not eating. You eat less often. Instead of 3-6 meals a day plus snacks, you eat within a certain time frame and limit yourself to 2 meals maximum and 1 or 2 snacks. Every time you eat, you raise your insulin. Too much insulin can be dangerous, so to reduce your insulin to more healthy, sustainable levels, you eat a keto diet and use intermittent fasting.

I recommend you check out Dr Berg on Youtube and his website.

My husband started because he had dangerously high blood pressure and had to get it down before he ended up in the hospital. His blood pressure is much closer to normal, his weight is down, and his snoring is better.

I needed to lose some weight, and I saw how well it was working for him, and have started trying it myself. I am losing weight, but the other benefits of having more energy, fewer jittery moments, and getting my swollen ankles to stop swelling are what have really convinced me to try this long term.

I only eat in an 8 hour window and I fast once a week for 24 or 48 hours.

Take a look at Dr. Berg and see if this would be right for you. It does take some discipline, but I think the outcomes can be worth it. Remember to consult a physicial for real medical advice, don't just take my word for it, since I am neither a nutritionist or a doctor - I'm just a belly dancer!
