There has been a lot of talk lately about intermittent fasting as a “new” way to lose weight, improve health, and simplify life. But the truth is that fasting is nothing new; in fact, it has been practiced for thousands of years for spiritual, religious, cultural, and health purposes.
What does it consist of? In intermittent fasting, the periods in which food is not eaten are lengthened, and everything that is going to be eaten during the day is consumed in a certain window of time. There are several types: 12/12 with a 12-hour fast and a 12-hour eating window; 8/16 which involves 16 hours of fasting, and eating two meals in an eight hour head start, is one of the most popular; 24-hour (one meal a day, or OMAD) or 48-hour fasts; the 5/2 plan which means eating normally five days and fasting two days a week.
In this regimen it is not specified so much what you should eat, but when you should eat it. In this sense, we cannot really classify it as a diet but rather as an eating pattern. It must be said that hydration is even more important when you fast, and that water does not break your fast, so drink at least eight glasses of water during the day.
