    Episode 111- HOT TOPIC! Which Fasting Protocol is Best for YOU? [REPLAY]

    Episode 111- HOT TOPIC! Which Fasting Protocol is Best for YOU? [REPLAY]

    In this episode we discuss the many different fasting protocols out there. Anywhere from intermittent fasting to extended fasts are essential for strong metabolic health, and how to implement them are all explained here! This is good information for all people, but particularly those who feel like they are not seeing the progress they are seeking. 
    In this episode we discuss: 
    [4:26]- I will be releasing three FREE and LIVE masterclasses starting January 3, 2023. You can register for Three Weight Loss Secrets You Need to Implement in 2023 here and also participate in a live Q&A with me!

    [10:39]- Crescendo Fasting
    Beginner stage to work up from, for those who are on medications, have multiple health issues, or are new to fasting Starting with 14 hours of fasting, and a 10 hour eating window, 2-3 days/ week [13:24]- Intermittent Fasting
    Also known as time restricted eating, almost anyone can do it Eating during a certain window on most days Popular protocols include 16:8 or 18:6 [21:34]- OMAD: One Meal a Day
    Usually only eating lunch or dinner  Can help one loose weight for a couple weeks or so, but eventually weight loss stalls and body adjusts Instead of doing this everyday, it can be smart to implement it every couple of days [25:14]- ADF: Alternate Day Fasting 
    Alternating fasting days with feast days Works great for those with weight loss stalls, since you are constantly keeping your body guessing For anyone who has done fasting for a while and is ready for a new challenge, along with those experiencing weight stalls [31:15]- 5:2 or 4:3
    Eat normally 2-3 meals 5 days/ week, then fasting for two days in a row, eating less than 500 calories each day Works particularly well for those who want to change up their fasting regimen or are experiencing weight stalls [33:34]- The importance of Feast Days, not Cheat Days! 
    Good to practice weekly, or at least once/ month Let’s the body know you are getting ample nutrition [34:57]- Extended Fasts
    A fast beyond 36 hours 36-42 hours of fasting 2-3 times a week is considered therapeutic fasting Best for those with insulin resistance, have a large amount of weight to loss, or reversing chronic illness  FOLLOW ME ON:

Finally something that works!

I’ve struggled with menopause weight gain for some time and could not find a solution. I did extensive cardio workouts and still the weight would not budge. The information in this book is changing my life and the weight is finally coming off!
