Intermittent fasting 101: What is it and will it help me lose weight?

This is such a common question I have been getting lately, so I thought I would put it all down in a blog. This should help answer your questions on intermittent fasting and if it’s right for you.

In a nutshell, intermittent fasting is just that: fasting intermittently.

It's limiting calorie intake during certain hours/day or days/week. It's more of an eating pattern than a diet. It limits when to eat, and not so much what to eat. And that’s part of it’s appeal to people who don’t want to count calories or use their food log to track everything.

Some people would say that it's a more natural way to eat because humans evolved without refrigerators, drive-throughs, or 24-hour convenience stores. We now have access to food (including junk food) all day long, so eating several meals per day plus snacks may be less natural than fasting from time to time.

Making New Years Resolutions You Will Actually Keep This Year

Let’s talk about staying healthy, losing weight, eating better and all those healthy new years resolutions you have for 2019.

Does it seem like the years fly by faster each year?  Sometimes I can't believe how fast they go, and this year is no exception.  We get wrapped up in life, work, family and all the other stuff, and before we know it, we're making holiday plans again with our loved ones. 

Same goes for Healthy New Year's Resolutions. 

Does this sound familiar? We proudly proclaim them at the beginning of each year with the best of intentions.  We really mean to accomplish them, but nearly all of them fall flat before Spring even hits. 

The statistics for gym drop off rates in January alone is staggering.

There are many reasons why this happens.  To stick with your resolutions, you’ve got to be realistic about your goals. Here are some tips for creating resolutions you’ll actually keep so that when New Year’s rolls around again, you can try making a new resolution instead of the same ones year after year.
