What Is Intermittent Fasting?
What usually comes to mind when most people hear of Intermittent Fasting (IF), is that it is just another crazy fad diet to lose weight with little effort. However, it isn't a diet at all, but rather an eating pattern. It’s not what you eat, but when you eat it that is important.
Depending on what type of fasting you schedule, you generally will have a time window where you are allowed to eat all the food you want. As soon as that window is over though, you don't eat ANYTHING until the window comes up again. For example, a common approach is 16 hour fasts with an 8 hour eating window every day.
There are dozens of different type of fasting diets, and with MyFast you can utilize any of them such as:
• Intermittent Fasting
• Full Fast - (water or juice only)
• The Daniel Fast - (water, juice, fruits and vegetables only)
• 5:2 - (eat normal for 5 days, and IF the remaining 2)
• Leangains - (combines daily 16 hour fast/8 hour feed windows with weight lifting)
• The Warrior Diet - ( Fast all day with one large overindulged meal, essentially 20/4 hour eat window)
• Alternative Day Diet - (every other day you will be fasting for 24 hours.)
• 3-Day Fast
• Partial Fast
• Up Day Down Day
• Fat Loss Forever
• Eat Stop Eat Intermittent Fasting Methods
• Dr Jason Fung Fast
How does it work?
The body has two states, a fed and a fasting. You enter the fasting state about 8-12 hours after your last meal. In this fasting state, it is much easier to burn fat because your body has nothing else to pull energy from except your fat stores.
Insulin inhibits the breakdown of your fat storages. After a meal, your insulin levels are highest and are telling the body to store the extra energy as fat.
Basically, keeping your body in a fasted state for longer periods, as done in IF, will help you to burn off fat that you otherwise couldn't.
Why should I fast?
When you think about it, humans have probably been intermittent fasting for the majority of our existence. Cavemen weren't eating every 3 hours to keep their metabolism burning, however this is not a valid scientific reason for fasting.
IF has lots of scientifically studied benefits associated with it. The main one is weight loss, specifically from your fat reserves. Other science shows reduced risks of diseases, anti-cancer, longer lifespans, better heart health, reduced inflammation, reduced insulin resistance, Alzheimer’s prevention, increased growth hormone, etc.
On top of that, it simply makes your life easier. When you don't have to worry about eating 6x a day, you can relax and focus on your daily tasks and goals. It's hard to be productive when every other hour your body starts reminding you too eat, but with IF you take the control back.

Ratings and Reviews
Perfectly Simple and Customizable, Best Fasting App
I must've downloaded 10 or more different fasting apps with tons of bells and whistles, yet not a single one has the simple functionality of MyFast, thank you! You can adjust duration AND start time, can measure fasts longer than 24 hours (why is this even an issue with other apps?), love it, don't need anything else. I'm working the Catalina Wine Mixer this weekend and will show it to all my buddies.
Simple and customizable
I downloaded all of them and this is the best simply to use fast timer that goes over 12 or 24 and is customizable without paying! Good job to the developer for putting the customizable option and let you edit the start time if you forget to start the clock or were too busy to do it. Thinking ahead is the way to go!
I love it
It’s perfect, simple. You just press “start” and you can pretty much go for as long as you want. If you accidentally press “stop” all you have to do is press “cancel” and it goes right back to counting. You can look at past fasts. It’s very simple, works nice. No complaints. You can also add your own start/end time if you started or ended during a time you couldn’t use your phone.
