One of the benefits of Intermittent Fasting is a ridiculous increase in your energy levels. I am talking, go from having mediocre energy to boss status energy levels within a very short period of time.
When I started fasting, my first meal of the day would bring my energy levels down for a few hours (approx. 1000-1200 cals consumed) but now, I may experience a slight drop in overall energy after eating, but 90% of the time, my energy is through. the. roof. It is actually quite hard to reign in sometimes, and I bounce off the walls. Like. Literally. Specifically for women, experts claim there is an increase in nighttime energy levels (I can vouch for this, especially during the first few weeks of fasting).
In addition to a very noticeable gain in my energy levels is a super level of mental clarity all throughout the day. Instead of my body and brain being bogged down processing and digesting my 6-7 (extremely healthy) small meals I used to eat throughout the day, my body and brain can focus on staying alert, productive, and clear.
