Breakfast, lunch, and dinner…3 meals a day. That’s what we’ve been taught to be the norm when it comes to our daily eating. There’s a new trend called intermittent fasting. Fast for like 15-18 hours per day. Sound interesting? Well, I do this very often and it works out great. I skip breakfast, eat lunch and an early dinner, and I don’t eat until the next day’s lunch. Essentially, skip a meal.
How does skipping a meal relate to my journey to early retirement? First, there are health benefits to it. Staying healthy will help you financially. You can avoid unnecessary medical expenses and keep yourself away from the doctors. Skipping a meal saves you money by not having to pay for food. One of the highest expenses a household has is food expenses. Not going out for a meal or trying to skip a meal can add up to some serious savings.
I’ve also done 1, 2, and 3+ day fasts. It is tough but again, it has health benefits. Plus, not having to pay for food for an entire day will keep the dollars in your pocket. Skipping a meal can have both financial and health benefits. Start working on your health and keep your hard earned money for you.
