You don’t need to go buy special foods or prepare special meals. There’s no special workout or supplements. In fact, you don’t have to spend any time grocery shopping, doing food prep, or make time for specific workouts. Fasting not only saves you money, it also saves you time.
How much time do you spend every day shopping, prepping, cooking, eating and cleaning? Whatever the number, multiple it three to six times if you follow traditional dietary advice. I guarantee you it’s startling if you do the math. No wonder you don’t have time to go to the gym or practice any self-care to reduce your stress.
2. You can fast anywhere, any time
The stars do not have to align to get started with intermittent fasting. All you need to get started is water and motivation to regain control of your waistline and your health. You can start this morning or this afternoon. You can fast on work trips and you can even squeeze some fasting in while on vacation if you overindulge at any meal. There is no special equipment you need to fast!
The stress of our modern day lives can really take a toll on our health, but fasting is one way to help reduce the burden. With fasting you get time back because it simplifies our days. Less time in the kitchen or the store means more time for rest. You can start doing things for yourself like going on a walk, reading a book, or learning a new skill or hobby. This is something noother diet does for us.
4. Your wallet
You don’t have to pay for a gym membership and buy special exercise equipment. You don’t have to shell out cash for supplements or expensive weight loss surgeries, especially when you don’t know if they’re going to even work. And you don’t need to buy expensive foods for a specific meal plan you likely won’t end up eating. Fasting on the other hand doesn’t cost anything to try. All you need is water to get started.
