EPISODE 80: 5 Problems With Intermittent Fasting

From Keto to Weight Watchers; Whole 30 to the South Beach Diet, it seems like everyone is trying to put their own unique spin and branding on how to put food in your mouth, and Intermittent Fasting (IF) is no different. 

The problem with IF, much like every other diet, is that it embeds you in the world of unsustainable dietary rules that take you away from connecting with your body and learning to interpret the many signals that it sends to you on a daily basis.

Join Rog Law and me on today’s episode where we dive right into 5 reasons why Intermittent Fasting might not be for you.
Topic discussed:
  • Why IF isn’t ideal for muscle building
  • How IF can skew your perception of what an appropriate portion of food looks like
  • The commonality of IF and how contributes to the normalization of bloat and heaviness in the stomach
  • How IF encourages eating according to a clock while ignoring your natural hunger signals
  • How IF perpetuates the cycle of overeating
There’s nothing magical about it. Sure, there are a few proven benefits of fasting, but there are equally as many challenges that can often result in overeating.

In short, many people have achieved wonderful results with IF, but many haven’t. The only way to know whether it will work for you or not is to try it and see.

However, keeping that in mind, there are many reasons why I’ve chosen not to incorporate IF in the program I’ve created for my clients. Just a few of which are  discussed in this episode.

What about you? Have you tried IF?
