I've struggled with my weight since I was a child, and after decades of trying different things found that a form of IF is the only approach that has been truly sustainable for me. I'm really glad that it's starting to get some mainstream press, or an article in HuffPo
at any rate.
I hadn't heard it called the "CEO's diet" before, but I can see how that would work for folks who need to eat a lot of business dinners. My form of IF is OMAD (one meal a day, which I got to by slowly shrinking my eating window) and like the CEOs, one aspect of it that I enjoy is that I can eat out for dinner... and hey, I'm still on plan! =) My husband uses an 8 hour window so he effectively eats lunch and dinner.
The article quotes a professor at the end, "There’s a lot of science behind it, and the science is only increasing.” The apparent benefits are almost mind-boggling (you can google them yourself or drop by our IF/OMAD thread
), but I do it because it works, it fits my lifestyle, and maintaining my weight no longer s*cks the way it did when I used to eat 3 "meals" and sometimes "snacks" counting calories.
