3 benefits of introducing intermittent fasting to your routine
According to Alexandra King, Certified Clinical Nutritionist for Wednesday Cleanse Day, the health benefits of intermittent fasting are best achieved when our circadian rhythm is aligned and regular. The circadian rhythm is a natural, internal process that occurs in the brain to regulate the sleep-wake cycle, and it functions best when we maintain a regular sleep schedule. The timing will vary between individuals but essentially means going to bed around the same time each night and waking at the same time each morning. Another simple hack you can implement to support this cycle is to expose yourself to the sun upon waking, walking outside, looking toward the sun and letting it warm your face and minimising bright lights and screens before going to sleep.
