Summary

Mankind has been fasting for centuries and throughout history. Sometimes, the fasting wasn't exactly a voluntary activity. In the hunter gatherer communities, mankind could go for long hours or probably days without food.

Fast forward to the time when man started having organized religion. Fasting is a religious activity that has been in practice for thousands of years; many religious organizations or groups such as the Christians, Muslims and even the Jewish incorporate fasting as part of their religious activities. For instance, it is not surprising to see a Muslim going on 40 days fast in preparation for the Ramadan.

While fasting has, for a long time, been associated with the lack of food and religion, the practice of fasting is now taking a different direction. People are now fasting for a different reason. For instance, in recent times, fasting now supersedes a religious activity. It has come to be known as a health boosting activity. So what's the difference between that and starving for days without food as we see happening in some poverty stricken parts of the world? Well, the difference is that there is a way of fasting that makes you attain these benefits; you just don't go without food for days then expect to be healthy! So how do you go about fasting in a good way to obtain the different benefits?

The most popular type of fasting that serves as a boost to health is known as the intermittent fasting. This book will serve as a master guide on how to achieve optimal health with intermittent fasting. It will cover various aspects of intermittent fasting such as the clear definition of the term intermittent fasting, health benefits and challenges associate

Short, concise overview of IF.

A great starting point for those new to this idea. Not for those whom are already knowledgeable on it, as it will be a repeat.

Great overview and Introduction

I recently learned more about Intermittent Fasting and wanted to learn more. This is a quick overview and includes what IF is, why it is beneficial, different options for fasting and a how-to guide. The quick overview does not include studies that back up the data, but nothing mentioned in the book contradicted what I have read about intermittent fasting from other sources.
Narration was a bit fast for me, but that was easily changed with the audible speed adjustment.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Short

Decent information overall but extremely short. Lacks evidence and information about fasting to prove or disprove the accuracy of the diet. Short and unsatisfying. Not worth one credit.
