You may already know that we spend over $3 Billion a year on weight loss programs and products.

But it may surprise you to know that we rank 38th of the top 40 industrialized nations in overall health. Even though we spend the Most, we don't have the Best. Far from it:

Intermittent Fasting For Weight Loss

What Is Intermittent Fasting?

Intermittent Fasting (IF) is the act of going without food or other caloric intake for a period of time, typically 15-24 hours. During this time, your body is unable to derive energy from incoming food and must instead turn to its stored energy (carbohydrates in the form of glycogen, amino acids, and fats) to maintain bodily functions. This is important as it gives the body time to focus on repair and immunity away from the highly energy intensive digestive process and forces the body to use all of its available energy pathways.
