Do you want to unleash your fat burning potential? To uplevel your brain, protect your heart and live epically?
Intermittent fasting (IF) is a tool you can use in your weekly routine to attain these benefits.
So what is it? Essentially, intermittent fasting is a way of eating that utilizes a fasting window (where you don’t consume any food) and an eating window (the time frame where you eat your normal daily intake).
Benefits of IF include:
• Regenerating cells
• Detoxifying cells
• Has shown to be protective against Alzheimer’s and dementia
• Reduce inflammation
• Burn Fat
• Boost cognitive function
For a moment I want to take you back to primal days. Imagine you’re ravenous and there’s no food in sight, you’ll have to go hunting for it. In order to do this, you need to have lots of energy, clarity, and focus in order to run and strategize the hunt.
Now back to the current day, I want you to take a moment to check in with how you currently feel when you’re hungry or low on fuel. Do you get irritable? Cranky or moody? Do you feel lethargic and unmotivated?
Would it make sense to feel this way when the only way to survive was to move, strategies and be able to walk or run for hours in order to find food? No, no it wouldn’t.
Your body is physiologically designed to thrive when fasting. Boosting cognitive function allows you to strategize your hunt and think clearly when gathering food.
Boosting physical performance, means you have the energy and the power in your movements to run, jump, and climb in order to hunt down the beast.
Your body is built for this and designed to go stretches without food.
Yes, we live in a modern world, but we also live in a primal body. Let’s respect that.
So how do you do it? Start with 2 days a week with the following fasting regime:
Fasting window (8pm to 12pm the following day)
Eating window (12pm to 8pm on the same day)
Consume your normal amount of foods within the eating window. And it is important you break your fast with a nourishing meal. This is not an excuse to eat crap. Again, respect your body.
When fasting you can have herbal tea, water, black tea, and coffee. Nothing with calories is allowed as this will take your body out of fasting mode.
If you enjoy fasting and are reaping the incredible benefits, you can increase it to 3-4 times a week.
At the end of the day, it’s all about figuring out what makes you thrive, and this is one way to get there!
