A Hidden Benefit to Intermittent Fasting – Nia Shanks –

Hello everyone! I said, as I went on my sabbatical that I would occasionally post articles, and here’s one I thought you’d enjoy, especially if you’re interested in INTERMITTENT FASTING (IF)

One of the things I’m doing during my sabbatical is reading, lots of reading. Now, I read a lot during school, but on school topics. I rarely have time to read for recreation. Now what I consider “recreation”, are nutrition topics of interest to me. My current fascination is INTERMITTENT FASTING. This is something I began about a month ago, and have learned to LOVE! Why? I have MORE energy; I’m more active; I sleep better; I’m losing weight, without changing my diet too much.

I am currently reading the book EAT STOP EAT by Brad Pilon. (If you have kindle unlimited, it’s FREE!) In the following article, Brad discusses a hidden benefit of IF, something I myself have discovered. Read on and find out for yourselves, all about this “hidden benefit!


Today’s article is a guest post from the author of Eat Stop Eat, Brad Pilon. He reveals a hidden benefit to intermittent fasting.

About Tamara Hoerner (1083 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
