A lot of claims are being made about Intermittent Fasting. Many of them, I cannot verify through my own immediate experience. What I can say first-hand: It gives your digestion system a break! For many years I have started my morning with a protein shake, a relatively healthy choice. But I still too often suffered from a couple of classic IBS symptoms – bloating and constipation – and many times the bloating started right after breakfast.
Since I have started experimenting with Intermittent Fasting, that is, narrowing the window of when I eat, I have not once felt that familiar swollen stomach sensation. A dream realized!!
More on this topic to come, but if you have IBS symptoms and would like to start learning about Intermittent Fasting today, I recommend two sources: Josh Axe and Jason Fung.
What you eat matters, but I am beginning to believe that when you eat matters even more.
