Practice Intermittent Fasting

“Fasting is the greatest remedy- the physician within.”-Paraclesus


Instead of viewing fasting as restrictive, we should start looking at it as a mentally and physically freeing practice! Instead of mindlessly grazing, you can use this time to read, spend time out in nature with your family, plan your day, go for a walk, journal, take a bath or cold shower, etc.


Benefits of Intermittent Fasting and Simple Tips:


Contrary to popular belief, skipping breakfast and narrowing your eating window has been shown to increase metabolism by balancing out fat burning hormones.


Fasting decreases insulin levels (increased insulin levels signal your body to store fat) and therefore helps with weight loss.


Try fasting for 13-16 hours. An example schedule: eat between the hours of 9am-5pm and fast between 5pm-9am. The times don’t matter- what matters is you find something that works well for your life and stick with it as best you can.


Eat your last meal 2-3 hours before bed so your body and brain can focus on recovery instead of digestion.


You can download an app called Zero - Fasting Tracker to help you track your fasting.


Check with your doctor to see if fasting is appropriate for you. Most people can tolerate a 13 hour window. Start slow and work your way up to 13-16 hours!
