Intermittent Fasting for PCOS

Intermittent fasting (IF) is one of the hot 'fads' around PCOS currently but, does it live up to the hype?

WHAT IS INTERMITTENT FASTING?

IF is not a diet as it doesn't dictate what to eat, and how much to eat. IF is simply an eating window that can support any 'typical' diet. The most common forms of IF will be 16:8 (16 hour fast, 8 hour eating window), 20:4 (20 hour fat, 4 hour eating window) or 5:2 (two days per week eating under 500 calories - ouch). The fasted window = no calories. Water is fine and so is any liquid that contains zero calories.

CONCLUSION

I'm neither for or against IF. I'm 100% for whatever works for you! If you're interested in IF, try it, see if you like it and if it works for you - it may, it may not. Let me know if you have any questions.
