Publisher's Summary

“Dr. Will Cole clearly cares about his patients’ health, and he addresses the widespread misconceptions about intermittent fasting while giving readers a tailored week-by-week plan to get back in touch with what their body truly needs.” (Mark Hyman, MD, director, the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine and New York Times best-selling author of Food)

Intuitive Fasting makes both the science and user-friendly application of this exciting approach to human nutrition available for everyone.” (David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, author of number one New York Times best seller Grain Brain and Brain Wash)

The most effective and achievable guide to intermittent fasting, outlining a unique plan that merges the science behind fasting with a holistic approach to eating, from the best-selling author of Ketotarian and The Inflammation Spectrum

For some, the idea of fasting by eating only one or two meals a day sounds like an extreme and overly restrictive dieting tactic. But the truth is, our daily eating schedule - three meals a day, plus snacks - does not necessarily reflect our bodies’ natural cycles. In fact, eating three meals every day can cause metabolic inflexibility, which can lead to inflammation, fatigue, and chronic health problems. For millions of years, our bodies have actually functioned best with periodic times of fasting.

With his fresh new approach to fasting, best-selling author and functional medicine expert Dr. Will Cole gives you the ability to take control of your hunger and make intermittent fasting intuitive. You’ll get in touch with your instinctive eating patterns and become healthier and more mindful about how and when you eat. Intuitive Fasting will show you how to find metabolic flexibility - and once you’ve reached it, you can trust your body to function at optimal capacity, whether you’ve eaten six minutes ago or six hours ago.

During his 4-Week Flexible Fasting Plan, Dr. Cole will guide you through varying intermittent fasting windows, with each week of the plan tailored to focus on a different aspect of your health. He illustrates the most effective ways to fast and eat to amplify the health benefits of intermittent fasting, balancing rest and repair with clean, nutrient-dense, delicious foods. By the end of the four weeks, you will have all the tools necessary to:

  • Reset your body
  • Recharge your metabolism
  • Renew your cells
  • Rebalance your hormones

Along with more than 65 recipes, you’ll also find a maintenance plan, so you can adapt fasting and feeding windows to work sustainably with your lifestyle.

Absurdly not what it says

This is keto, folks. It’s keto plus highly restrictive fasting windows and foods. It’s anything but “intuitive” it’s willpower and deprivation and some more willpower to starve yourself thrown in. I’m reminded throughout of the short term weight loss benefits of ketosis that nearly always cause rebounds as most people won’t live this way forever. (And the long term studies that keep showing keto shortens your life span) But I’ve been doing 14 hr intermittent fasting and was very interested in reading more takes on it, but this book going back. “Listen to your hunger and ignore it” because that’s intuitive - I guess ignoring it is what your intuition wants you to do? I have no doubt that anyone who did something this restrictive would lose weight for a month and no doubt that they’d gain it back and then some. Ugh. I’ll find better books on fasting, or I’ll just stick to reading the actual studies on it for motivation, but don’t want to spend any money on another keto book disguised as something else.

Dr. Will Cole has it figured out!

I’ve been researching and living a Keri lifestyle with bumps along the way for over a year now and Dr Cole has giving me the tools and the mindset to dig in for life. His tools and well said advice and encouragement have made the difference. I’ve referred all my interested friends to this book because it’s concise and to the point and the recipient are beautiful.
Thank you and PS, thank you for including meat 😊

Great Book

Dr. Will Cole has high energy, is well-spoken, and comes off enthusiastic about what he is saying.

The nutritional information is presented in a generalized manner but that worked for me. For example he often says "A study showed" with no further info or details on the source or study.

Some that are being critical of the book come off as they did not read the book.

For example he discusses how this plan is so similar to keto so why not just call it keto. His response to that was well received and I love how he gives the standard or best approach but also how flexible this plan really is.

Insightful read/listen

This is a great book to learn about your body and learn how to reduce the amount of carbs/sugars that our culture is now use to eating daily. The reviews that left one star and wrote about how this book promotes deprivation of certain food is completely not true! Everyone can indulge in the foods we love like pizza, cake, pastas etc… but everything in moderation. It doesn’t take common sense to realize that eating a bowl of fettuccine or pizza & high carb foods isn’t the best thing to do for yourself on a daily. This book simply prepares on how to wing off all the high carb foods that we are use to eating too often. I love it and it takes self awareness to understand what you are doing wrong in your routine that is not giving you the results you ultimately want.

Balanced, reasonable approach

I’m so glad I found this book. It’s been disappointing to see so much shaming and criticism of this title,especially from those who haven’t even read it! I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease 2 years ago and intermittent fasting has drastically improved my disease symptoms. I’m excited to introduce more aspects of Dr. Cole’s model and see the impacts on my gut health and overall well-being.
