Well let me ask you this, does a pig love slop? The answer to both of these is a resounding YES!
Do you desperately want to shed some extra pounds and feel like you’ve tried everything and failed? Have you ever tried intermittent fasting and if so were you consistent with it (because that is key)?
Society is no help. They are telling you that you need to exercise more, eat more often and add more low-fat products to your diet. That is terrible advice and it never works… are you aware of the obesity epidemic we are battling right now?
Intermittent fasting is about meal timing which allows the many hormones you have in your body to work simultaneously to help you feel in control of your eating and also burn the excess fat resting in your body just waiting to be used for fuel.
I have been practicing intermittent fasting for 18 years now and all I essentially do is delay my breakfast every morning about four hours.
Alongside that, I have also lowered my carbohydrate intake to mostly come from fresh vegetables, consume all of my calories in just three meals a day and I’ve increased my fat intake to be about 50% of my calories.
It sounds unconventional in today’s standards of dieting but it actually follows the pattern of our ancestors who never had a problem with excess weight.
Let me give you an example of what my day looks like:
I wake up around 7 AM and have black coffee. Around 8:30 AM, I will drink my pre-workout. At 9 AM I do 30 minutes of exercise in my home and drink some BCAA’s as I do so. My first meal will come around 11 AM, which is usually a veggie omelette. I wait to have my second meal until around 3 PM and it’s most likely a big old salad. My last meal is around 7 PM and it’s most likely a little bit of meat and a very large portion of vegetables cooked in olive oil and topped with a pat of butter… Yum!
Intermittent fasting may sound scary at first because your first thought is you won’t be eating when you’re hungry but that couldn’t be further from the truth. With this pattern of eating and the types of food that you do eat within that eight hour period… You always feel satisfied and food just isn’t constantly in your forethought anymore like it is when you eat all day with plenty of carbs.
You’ve got to give it a try, it’s literally both time AND life saving!
