Here’s the thing about me that might piss you off a little: I LOVE HEALTHY FOOD! I don't live to eat (it is totally okay if you do), and I don’t ever need “cheat days” for this reason. Until 2015, I was the six-small-meals-every-2-hours person. I switched to intermittent fasting then (16:8) for more than one reason (will go over this in a later post.) I eat my first meal around 1pm, and my last meal around 9pm, that means 16 hours of fasting including sleep time.
We’ve always been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it kickstarts your metabolism, keeps you from snacking, and helps you control your portions for lunch/ dinner etc. This is where I want you to pause, be open to a counter-intuitive theory, and read this NY Times article about 2016’s Nobel Prize winner, Yoshinori Ohsumi’s (Japanese cellular biologist) research work on fasting/ autophagy.
