Have you heard of intermittent fasting? Supposedly it may be the newest diet trend starting to emerge. Wow, that was fast, didn’t we just get through the “Wheat Belly” fad?
I was asked to do an interview for CBC radio Canada International on this topic. Here is a link to my to both the article and interview.

Bottom line: I am not really sure that if the diet works or doesn’t work. There is obviously some big fans out there of this diet, and people have reported losing weight on intermittent fasting. But without any long-term weight loss/ weight loss maintenance data it is very hard to measure the diets long-term success. It won’t be a diet that I will be trying anytime soon (as a test to find out how it feels), because I LOVE food TOO much do go an entire day without eating. I also wouldn’t recommend it for weight loss, because I don’t think it is something that people would be happy on, and can sustain fasting lifelong. *Among other things, this is definitely not a diet for anyone who susceptible to disordered eating, has a medical condition (i.e. diabetes) or is pregnant.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic…if you have tried it, or thinking of trying it.
