Having written a book and numerous blogs on the subject, my personal and professional fascination with intermittent fasting is a secret to no one.
With that being said, I don’t embrace it in a dogmatic fashion nor do I believe, or have reason to believe, it will ever be the most important aspect of most people’s interaction with food.
Even so, it’s hard to deny that, for the right individual, it is an appealing framework that may offer certain practical and physiological advantages.
I consider it very much the icing on the icing on the cake.

Given that I’ve produced quite a bit of intermittent fasting content over the last year or so I felt it a decent time to put it all in one place so that those of you who are as fascinated by the topic as I am can have an easily accessible resource to review my views and research.
Let’s take a closer look at what I have on offer.

Final Thoughts And A Message To Those Who Are Curious
In each of the articles above I objectively explore different facets of the world of intermittent fasting.
You will notice that, despite my interest in it, I am careful never to elevate it beyond where it is merited to be based on the evidence.
I strongly encourage anyone who may be curious about dabbling with intermittent fasting to discuss it with a health professional who has spent time thinking about the topic.
It is a topic that comes up with some regularity among my clients but one that I strongly implore not be employed in an overly dogmatic or restrictive fashion, as it is not without a certain level of risks and downsides.
With that said, I hope you enjoyed today’s content.
Until next time,
