What’s this about intermittent fasting?

There’s all this talk recently about intermittent fasting, keytones and ketosis. What the heck is everyone taking about it and why should I learn about it?

I have recently been hearing about it in regards to TMIs (Tramatic Brian injury) and how ketosis is very helpful. Soooooo…. I chose to check it out! Through my research I learnt that the brain works better on keytones (fat) vs glycogen (carbs). When you intermittent fast, it puts your body into keytosis. While you are fasting, your body burns keytones for energy, not glucose. Ideally you fast for 16 hours, as it takes the body approximately 8 hours to burn all the glucose out of your body.
