- WHAT IS INTERMITTENT FASTING?
Intermittent Fasting (IF) is an effective way to lose weight and improve health and is less of a diet and more a pattern of eating. It involves eating patterns that cycle between periods of fasting and periods of eating.

Insulin levels drop when a person is not consuming food. During a period of fasting, decreasing insulin levels cause cells to release stored glucose as energy. Repeating this process regularly, as with intermittent fasting, leads to weight loss.

There are several different intermittent fasting methods, all of which split the day or week into eating periods and fasting periods.
