There’s a LOT of information about fasting and it can get confusing about what’s right for you.

It’s important to understand what fasting is, how it can affect your body and how to incorporate it effectively.

Let me explain about fasting and how it works.

Metabolic Switching:

Think of your body like a car with two fuel tanks – one for carbohydrates (sugars) and one for fats. Metabolic switching is like switching between these fuel tanks. When you eat lots of carbohydrates, your body primarily uses them for energy. It’s like using the carbohydrate fuel tank.

When you eat fewer carbohydrates and more fats, your body switches to using fat for energy. It’s like using the fat fuel tank. This switch activates health benefits, like burning stored fat for weight loss, improving your energy levels and elevating mood.

Intermittent fasting is a science-backed way of using food, and when you eat it to activate health-changing benefits.

The benefits are incredible:

  • weight management
  • improved metabolic health
  • increased energy
  • enhanced mental clarity
  • and even longevity

Fasting empowers your body to reset, rejuvenate, and reach its full potential while balancing hormones and burning stored fat.

Fasting is NOT A FAD OR DIET, but an effective way of eating you can use over and over. A lifestyle for navigating when you eat instead of how many calories you eat. An eating and drinking plan for vacations, special occasions, wedding weekends, dining out, and everyday life. Tools for staying in control of how you look and feel so you can use food and drink for pleasure and purpose.

Best of all, you simply consume your calories for the day during specific hours of your choosing.

This is a simplified overview of intermittent fasting and as easy as it seems, people who get the best results with fasting already have a hydration practice and eat a diet rich in nutrient dense foods.
