Intuitive Eating
Speaking of controlling mindless eating, one thing that those who do IF report is that the eating schedule has helped them have a stronger sense of intuitive eating. Rather than just reaching for food on habit, they are more in tune with their bodies and what they actually need. IF can also make you more mindful of what you put in your body. Considering you fast for portions of the day, most want to fill the times they are able to eat with healthy and nutritious food rather than junk.
