One of the best ways to find happiness and success in life is to strip away the unnecessary things and focus only on what is needed.With intermittent fasting, I have been able to increase strength, reduce body fat, and maintain good health while spending less time eating each day. If you can get the same results by making life simpler and only eating twice per day, why would you make life more complex by eating three, four, or five times per day? 2. Intermittent fasting is an excellent travel strategy. I used to be annoyed by the lack of healthy food options in airports. This is especially true in my case because I’m looking bulk up and add good weight, so I need to eat a lot. Finding a sizable amount of healthy food is a tall task in most airports. The solution? Treat your travel days as a fasting day and then eat twice as much good food the following day. As an example, last year when I was flying back from Thanksgiving with my family, I didn’t eat that day. It ended up being about 32 hours between meals. That’s the longest I’ve gone on a single fast, but things worked out just fine and I avoided the poor nutrition of the airport. 3. So far, intermittent fasting has not hurt my long-term health. I’m not interested in doing intermittent fasting if it sacrifices my long-term health for short-term improvements. And for that reason, I’ve kept a close eye on how I feel, how my body is responding, and whether my overall health is improving or declining. Thankfully, I’m in better shape than I was two years ago, which is proven by my strength numbers in the gym. And more importantly, a recent checkup with my physician has revealed that my blood work, cholesterol, and hormones are in check as well. And remember, this is after two years of intermittent fasting. (If you’re interested, my recent blood work results are here.) Note: I think it’s important to clarify that I can only speak from my experience and I can’t promise anything with regards to how your body will respond to intermittent fasting. I know that, in some cases, women believe that intermittent fasting has thrown their hormones off balance. I don’t have any data on this and so all I can offer is my own experience. As with most things in life, your mileage may vary. 4. Intermittent fasting isn’t a magic pill. In the beginning, I hoped that intermittent fasting alone would be a secret weapon for health and fat loss. It seemed like all of the experts were saying that if I changed what time I ate, then I would lose fat and gain muscle easily. That sounded good to me. The reality, of course, is much different. I only started seeing the results I wanted when I combined intermittent fasting with a healthy diet of real, whole foods and consistent weightlifting. Intermittent fasting is just another tool in your toolbox. Just as eating a healthy diet of real, whole foods is another tool. And exercising regularly is another tool. And meditating or doing yoga to reduce stress is another tool. And sleeping at least 8 hours per night is another tool.
