Intermittent Fasting: A Guide to Weight Loss and Living a Longer, Healthier Life – Rachel Payne

Anyone who has even vaguely considered embarking on a diet in the last twelve months will have been bombarded with mountains of conflicting information, all promoting diets of different kinds. The Mayo diet, the Mind diet, Flexitarian, TLC Mediterranean, Atkins, Keto: the list goes on and on.

The problem you will almost definitely face in trying to understand how to eat most effectively is that each diet seems to be at odds with the others and it becomes very difficult to distinguish fact from fiction.

The body and the way it processes food is a complicated field and, even in the science arena, there is a great deal of disagreement about what makes us fat and what does not.

Perhaps the time has come to take another look at a way of eating that all our ancestors once thrived on. Intermittent fasting is part of the genetic heritage of each and every one of us. This book revisits this very old subject. When examined beneath the lens of modern science, we discover that a way of eating that was once totally normal may well be the best way to achieve peak health and weight control.
