Intermittent Fasting is a style of eating in which we alternate between periods of eating and fasting. Now, I don’t like the term “fasting” because it insinuates something restrictive. Funny thing is that we all already do some form of intermittent fasting… we eat during the day and we don’t eat while we sleep. Intermittent Fasting is a more exaggerated form of what many of us are already doing with greater benefits, such as increased fat loss.
I’ve receive so many questions on Intermittent Fasting. I know a lot of women are following IF alongside the new food plan (which is going to be AMAZING for results), so today, I wanted to share all my resources on IF.
WHAT IS INTERMITTENT FASTING
You eat for a period of time and then you stop for a period of time – it’s that simple. There is a standard 16/8 protocol that is often suggested, but I also believe in many modifications (especially for women) that are still very effective. Intermittent Fasting or IF is most popular because of the accelerated fat loss benefit because the time spent “fasting” allows the body to switch from burning sugar/carbs to burning fat for its primary energy source.
WHY I SHARE ABOUT INTERMITTENT FASTING
First off, I follow IF and saw the benefits for myself so I wanted to share in hopes of help you too. I believe my job is to share as many tools as possible to help you reach your goals. Some tools are more useful for you than others. Yet another woman may find different tools useful. Basically, my goal is to share as much as possible and then empower you to decide which approaches, plans and tips are the best fit for you.
IF is another tool in our nutrition toolbox. It is not a diet. It is not a quick fix. It can be a powerful eating approach for fat loss and a variety of other benefits. My mini guide will provide all the details on it but today, I want to preview it so you can decide if it’s something you’re interested in.
My Intermittent Fasting Mini Guide is only available as part of my Eat Your Way Lean Meal Plan.
If you’re interested in following IF, I highly suggest it because it simplifies all the info out there and teaches you exactly how to get started and seeing the benefits.
