Intermittent Fasting are some buzz words in the fitness and nutrition world right now and for good reason! It can be a highly effective way to lose weight, keep it off, and get toned!
And today, you are in luck!
We have put together a “Cheat Sheet” for you on Intermittent Fasting!
But I must say, not all Intermittent Fasting is created equal…
With that being said, we have tested different types of Intermittent Fasting and done different windows of fasting which has helped us to create our own Intermittent Fasting program that we have found so much success with personally and with our clients. We call it LEAN FAST .
We practice flexible Intermittent Fasting and flexible Carb Cycling together every single day! We always love sharing about it because we have seen such great success from it!
So, we have created a quick little “Cheat Sheet” for you on some keys to how to do Intermittent Fasting affectively. We hope this is helpful!
–FASTING WINDOW: It is important to figure out what fasting window works for you!
For women, we recommend anywhere from 10-14 hours
For men, we recommend anywhere from 10-16 hours!
–START OUT SLOWLY: It is important to take it slow when trying out Intermittent Fasting. We also recommend being aware of how you are feeling! Be willing to listen to your body and try extending and shortening how long you fast in regards to how you feel!
-MAKE SURE YOU EAT: Intermittent Fasting does not mean eat less, but rather you eat the normal amount you would but in a smaller eating window. This is one of the biggest mistakes we see people make. So be sure you’re fueling your body with the right foods!
-TIME YOUR FAST TO BE MOSTLY WHILE YOU SLEEP: We understand that some people go to bed early while others go to bed late. Same is true for waking up at the crack of dawn or sleeping in a little later. We always recommend to try to have the majority of your fast during when you sleep!
And there you have it!
A quick cheat sheet for you on how to do our flexible intermittent fasting effectively!
