Why Intermittent Fasting?

Why Intermittent Fasting?

I admit, I’m a fairly new convert to Intermittent Fasting, and I will never go back to the way I was before.

For many years I was a breakfast eating,  5 mini meal a day kind of girl. I preached that mindset for the first 18 and a half  years of my of my fitness career.

I taught my clients they must eat breakfast with in 45 minutes of waking, followed with mini meals all day. I bragged that I ate at 7am, 10, 1, 4, & 7pm Each meal at about 300 calories, equaling 1500 for the day. Phew! It seemed like all I did was think about food, what I was eating, when my next meal was, and of course how many calories….. Food consumed me

My husband thought I was crazy, and my friends thought it easy for me. You know, being a fitness pro and all… The truth is eating 5 mini meals a day is exhausting! A lot goes into it, and I was sick of it. And, and I was not getting the results I felt I should get because of it. I was often frustrated, rushed, tired, hungry, etc… I was so deeply entrenched in the diet industry, and just believed that it was me, I had to work harder, keep doing, let my body adjust, blah, blah, blah…. WRONG!!

Enter Intermittent Fasting. IF changed all of that. I decided to experiment with it, and was shocked with my results. I dragged a few of my closest friends into a program with me, learned all I could about the science of it, and before I knew it…. we are all experiencing success. Listen, the body is an incredible machine, and knows just how to operate. All we have to do is give it the right stuff so it can do it’s job. Turns out the right stuff is not necessarily constant calories from morning till night.

What is Intermittent fasting? First what it is not…. it is not skipping breakfast in an effort to eat fewer calories. That backfires. Most people who skip meals  get so hungry that they eat anything. Eating to eat because you’re starving, often leads to way to many calories that have no real nutritional value and definitely no staying power. FAIL

Intermittent fasting IS a strategically timed eating pattern where you consume all of your calories, in the right macros (carbs, protein, fats) in a shortened feeding window. It’s really rather simple when you think about it. Your body responds because it is being satisfied with enough food. Intermittent fasting is not low calorie, or deprivation. It is quite the opposite. When you lengthen the time span between your last meal of the day and your first the next day, you put your body into a fat burning state. But.. and this is a big but; you have to eat enough!

My clients practice an All Foods Fit approach along with Carb Cycling, and Intermittent Fasting to get the sustainable win.

Like I said the body is an incredible machine, and with the right fuel it will burn fat and preserve muscle. You will have more energy, less sugar cravings, sleep better, get off certain meds, and you will lose fat! Learning to use intermittent fasting is a process. My clients usually get it in about 3 weeks. And once they do, an explosion of FREEOM happens.
