Intermittent fasting has been around for thousands of years. It’s been used for religious reasons as well as medical reasons. You’ve likely done it at least once while waiting to get a blood test done or if you’ve ever had surgery. It’s also been done out of necessity. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors used to fast as part of their lifestyle. They didn’t have refrigerators or other ways to preserve food. They would hunt, feast, then fast until they were able to get another meal.
Benefits to Fasting
Fasting has been shown to have many health benefits, from increased weight loss to better brain function.
Intermittent fasting is a tool that can be added to any diet or lifestyle. Most people who follow the ketogenic lifestyle fall into fasting naturally and have no problem adapting to it. If you are a super carboholic, you may find it difficult at first, but if you stick with it, you will succeed!
Types of Fasting
In this three week self guided email course, you will learn the basics of fasting and how to apply them to your lifestyle. Most fasts are between 12 and 72 hours. I will help you implement the most common fast, the 16:8 which means 16 hours of fasting and 8 hours of eating.
Upon completion of the course you’ll receive a PDF of the most popular types of fasts and the benefits to each one. These fasts can all be used depending on your goals and lifestyle.
I especially love to fast on travel days. Once your body is adjusted to fasting, you do not get that “Hangry-I-Want-To-Kill-Someone” feeling. I recently drive from Virginia Beach to my home in Northeast Pa and did not bring road snacks with me. I stopped only to refill my coffee cup. Black coffee. If you’re a frequent flyer, you’ll especially love it if you often find yourself rushing from gate to gate with no time to stop for a meal in between.
