Last Updated on November 19, 2022 by Lori Geurin

Let’s not beat around the bush. As some of you may know, I’m a health coach and intermittent fasting lover. I help people like you create healthy habits that are easy to do, affordable, and long-lasting.

Today, I’ll share three reasons you should try intermittent fasting (IF).

More importantly, today I’ll be helping you make a solid decision of whether you want to simplify your life, have more energy, lose body fat, and reduce cravings or… spend your time trying to count calories, macros or points, or working out for an hour a day…and feeling frustrated. 🙂

The thing is, intermittent fasting is NOT suitable for everyone. That’s the truth.

I know of so many people who were only slightly interested in fasting and wanted to lose weight or have more energy… but they never got anywhere because they did not dig deep enough to truly understand why clean fasting or eating healthy food (in their eating window) is so important.

10 Reasons Why You Should Try Intermittent Fasting

After talking to dozens of my most successful clients, I’ve distilled the three main reasons why anyone would want to lose weight, prevent disease, and simplify their lives. And it’s not what you imagine!

Here are the top 3 reasons I’ve discovered:

  1. Get healthy so that I can be more involved with my family/children/friends
  2. Feel less stress and more peace
  3. Live a long, healthy life

What about you? Do any of these reasons resonate with you?

I want you to get clear on your reason(s) behind why you want to lose weight or get healthy. Let’s not talk about superficial reasons. I want you to dig deep to truly figure out why you want to be physically and mentally healthy.

You may realize at the end of the day that fasting isn’t for you, and that’s okay. But if you realize that fasting may be something you are interested in, I’m here to walk this journey with you!
