Publisher's Summary

If you need to lose weight, look great, reduce inflammation, boost your immunity, or a myriad of other benefits, then you should consider one of the various intermittent fasting methods.

There are different forms of intermittent fasting, so if you want to fast responsibly, then you should find the type of fasting that suits you best. For instance, there is the 16-eight fasting where you fast for 16 hours and then eat your meals within the remaining eight hours. Then there is the alternate day fast where you fast on one day and eat normally the next.You may also choose the extended fast where you fast for a longer period of time such as eight days or more.

Traditional fasting has proven to be ineffective with many people unable to cope with the tough requirements. Ordinarily, people would fast from dawn to dusk for probably an entire month, having to endure days on end without proper meals. Then once the benefits of fasting are achieved, they would resume normal life only for the problems to creep back again. This can be very frustrating.

Fortunately, intermittent fasting solves this problem. Rather than go through lengthy periods of fasting, all you need to do is identify the most suitable intermittent type of fasting. For instance, you may choose the 16-eight format where you go for 16 hours without eating anything and only eat within an eight-hour window in any given day. Fortunately, the 16 hours of fasting include your sleeping time, so you will be asleep for about half of that time.

Intermittent fasting has gained popularity because it offers choice, is easy to handle, and has a lot of benefits but without the rigors and disadvantages of traditional ways of fasting. If you need to lose weight, look great, reduce inflammation, boost your immunity, or want a myriad of other benefits, then you should consider one of the various intermittent fasting methods.

Informative

I had heard very briefly about fasting in the past.

Apparenty I already do a 16 hour/8 hour fast. Very interesting. I had no idea.

This audibook goes into several different aspects both good and bad, a brief history, types and how each of them work.

If fasting is something you are interested, this book is probably worth it. You can always go back and reference it.

Narrator was good.

Interesting information

Actually tried some of these practices and I can tell a difference. I think I've been doing a lot of this for years but didn't put it together until I read this book. I would recommend this book.

Fasting: Pros and Cons..

This book has 31 pages of fasting information.

It touches upon the different reasons why people fast, the benefits, as well as the downsides.

My only issues was that the book was not longer.

The guy on the cover with the dessert, that's exactly how I look, right before dessert... lol..

The narrator, Shawna Wolf , did well.

Good introduction to this practice

I found the information a bit basic for me; yet, I still enjoyed it. I would recommend this audiobook as an introduction to someone new to the practice of fasting. While the narrator was good, something about her voice didn’t click with me as well as other narrators in the past have; I think it’s a personal thing and, therefore, I would bet that others may thoroughly enjoy her. I’m giving it a good rating because I would recommend it to someone new to the topic and because I was able to complete the book during one commuting trip.

Get Great Benefits From the Food You Don't Eat!

Iv'e seen the benefits of intermittent fasting being extolled in various health-related documentaries and professors of this thing or that. I have found this work, The Complete Guide to Intermittent Fasting, a great addition to the information Iv'e gathered from those other rescources.

The author starts out by defining the different types or methods of fasting as well as the associated goals one might have that would lead to the practice. Health benefits that one can achieve from incorporating fasting are stated clearly and in a way that makes you want to skip that thing that plagues your success in your diet goals. The list of health problems fasting can improve is motivating enough to make me actually want to skip a meal or two, and that's saying something!

Steps are briefly laid out to gauge the condition of your body while you fast as well as the tracking of your health goals while you fast. Though they are only touched upon lightly, they are given to the degree that using their key words in an internet search will dig up deeper information on the subject. The benefits of certain increases of desirable conditions in the body and decreases of undesirable conditions experienced by a successful and consistent faster are also presented. Cautions are also given to aid the participant who is new to the practice.

I regularly participate in a 24hr fast for spiritual purposes and can testify to the way I feel after the fasting period is over. I feel less sluggish and more light and healthy, more connected with my body. While these are "feelings" that are highly subjective and not hard science, for me they are consistent each time I fast.

I feel the author, Charlie Mason, provides a pretty good overview of the how's and why's of fasting without interjecting a bunch of health industry hype, fads, buzz words, or trends. I have several small audiobooks by this author and have found each of them to be well written with no fluff or fillers. No hype or buzz word filled prose. Just the meat of the subject is covered and I really appreciate that!

I was given this audiobook for free at my request in exchange for this honest and unbiased review.

Light overview of fasting With robotic narrator

Provides a very light and cursory review of fasting, including the reasons one would (e.g. weight loss, religious) and the different types (once a week, after certain hours in the day). The book didn’t get too far into each type which I would have appreciated, nor does it provide references for the curious listener. Seems like a rehash of the WebMD and Wikipedia sites on the same subject matter.

My biggest issue with this book was Chapter Six discussing the flushing of toxins from cells along with “other unwanted junk”. This line removed any credibility from this book as toxins in this description do not exist and are solely in the realm of “woo-woo science”. Scientific illiteracy is very damaging and deleterious as seen in the recent measles outbreaks, and should not be propagated.

Informative

I’ve been considering fasting for weight loss but wanted to find information on the process first. I found The Complete Guide to Intermittent Fasting very informative and providing just the right balance of history, religious uses, the benefits, pitfalls, the different processes, and improved quality of life awaiting participants. The narrator did a decent job! I received a free copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
