Rest your digestion, cleanse your colon, detox your liver, and reset your kidneys. It’s as simple as changing the timing of your meals. Intermittent Fasting allows your body time to heal and it’s especially powerful when combined with a nutritious plant based diet. Let your body burn fat between meals. Control hunger, cut cravings, and reduce overall caloric intake in a sustainable and effective way.
What to Eat
Be sure to eat a healthy, whole foods diet in between fasting. Eat plenty of healthy protein, fat, and fiber. Choose nutrient dense, organic fruits and vegetables. Drink at least 8 cups of filtered water per day. Try bulletproof coffee in the morning. Combined with The Ketogenic Diet, intermittent fasting can have life changing impacts on overall health and weight loss.
When to Eat
Eat within a 4-8 hour window every day. Example: Eat at Noon, 3pm, 6pm. This stimulates the effects of fasting and boosts the metabolism. The body releases energy stored as fat and the break period gives your body time to heal.
Frequency of Fasting
Fasting less than 24 hours at a time may be done more frequently. Listen to your body. Intermittent fasting may work for you daily or you may be done as little as 2-3 days per week. Of course, always consult with your health practitioner before beginning any diet or fasting regimen.
TIP: While fasting, try choosing non-calorie drinks only (with the exception of Bulletproof coffee or bone broth).
