For some, the idea of fasting by eating only one or two meals a day still sounds like an extreme and overly restrictive dieting tactic. But many of us already feel like victims to our daily eating schedule: three meals a day, plus snacks. Eat every few hours, we are told by the experts. This fixed eating schedule has become the norm. The truth is, this is an artificially constructed schedule that does not reflect our bodies’ natural and most optimal eating schedule. In fact, eating three meals every day can cause metabolic inflexibility, which can easily lead to inflammation, weight gain, fatigue and chronic health problems. For millions of years, our bodies have actually functioned best with periodic times of fasting.
With his fresh, new approach to fasting, bestselling author and functional medicine expert Dr. Will Cole gives us the ability to take control of our hunger and makes intermittent fasting intuitive. You’ll get in touch with your instinctive eating patterns, and become healthier and more mindful about how and when you eat. When your body is out of balance it can be very difficult to discern what it needs to build vibrant wellness.
In this game-changing book, Dr. Will Cole illustrates the most effective ways to fast and eat to amplify the health benefits of intermittent fasting, balancing rest and repair with clean, nutrient-dense, delicious foods. Along with more than 65 recipes, he also includes a maintenance plan, so you can adapt fasting and feeding windows to sustainably work with your lifestyle.
