In addition to that, I’ve never been a big eater anyway. I don’t like that feeling of eating so much that I feel “over-full” after my meal. It’s uncomfortable. And I especially don’t like the bloating that comes along with it.

There is a good chance that you may intermittently fast and not even realize it. When you get busy at work, and you don’t have time to stop and take a break to get something to eat, and 4 or more hours have passed, you have just “intermittent fasted.”

Intermittent fasting is ¬†good for the body. If you’ve fasted for anywhere between 4 and 8 hours at a time, you’ve forced your body to access the energy sources stored within your body. When your body accesses those energy stores, that fuel comes out of your body in the form of weight loss.
