Can you believe it’s May already?
2013 is flying by for me at least, and the start of a new month means that it’s time for a new Monthly Mission.
This month I’m going to try something that I’ve been thinking about for a little while.
There are no shortage of different diet trick and gimmicks out there that all manner of experts swear by, just to be refuted but another group of experts. I’ve tried some from time to time, but I’m not really interested it most diets. If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know that I strongly believe in eating real food and limiting as much processed and pre-made crap as possible. And it is this belief that makes me question a lot of diets that restrict different foods or food groups.
This month, however, I am trying a different eating plan. I will be following the 8-Hour Diet for the duration of this month, with the possibility of continuing it past the month of May. I started reading the book on the 8-Hour Diet a few days ago, and while I haven’t finished it the authors have made a lot of interesting claims about the benefits of the diet. I’m looking forward to reading more in the coming days.
The premise of the 8-Hour Diet is to only eat during an 8 hour window each day, and to fast the other 16 hours. According to the book, the health benefits of intermittent fasting can be realized by adhering to the diet for as few as 3 days a week.
I’ll give it a shot for the month, and see how it goes.
Have any of you tried or read the 8-Hour Diet before? What are your thoughts?
What are you doing for your Monthly Mission this month?
