16:8 Intermittent Diet's Possible Drawbacks and Considerations

* If you presently have diabetes, heart problems and other serious health issues, it is best that you consult your doctor before starting any new eating regimen.
* If you have had an eating disorder, this may not be the best diet alternative for you. Use your best judgement.
* Although there are many animal and human studies that verify the benefits and possible side effects, the research is far from complete. If you have any noticeable side effects, it is best to stop the routine. I have yet to hear or read of anyone having problems with the 16:8.
* The 16:8 intermittent fasting diet is not a license to eat recklessly. It is very important to get nutritious food. It’s advisable to get your nutrition from whole foods.

All in all, the 16:8 intermittent fasting diet has made a believer out of me. It is the most effective eating
regimen I have done for losing weight and keeping it off. Nevertheless, it may not be for everybody. If you are healthy, I would suggest trying it for a week or so. You may get the urge to eat earlier than your scheduled first meal of the day. Don’t worry. A few slips don’t have a major effect. If you have any questions, call me at 619-990-4479
