Intermittent Fasting

How often should I do Intermittent Fasting?

There are a few different intermittent fasting schedules you can follow:

The best fasting schedules:

16:8 This is where you fast for 16 hours, and you have an 8 hour eating window. This is really great for the average person. It’s best to only have 2 meals in your fasting window. 

20:4 With this fasting schedule, you fast for 20 hours, and your eating window is 4 hours. This schedule has even more fasting benefits for your brain, heart, repair, and anti-aging.

OMAD means you only eat one meal a day. Many people do this with fantastic success, and it has even more intermittent fasting benefits than the 20:4 fasting schedule. Some people may even need to do one meal a day every other day. 

With all of these different fasting schedules, you can also add periodic prolonged fasting. This is where you fast a little longer (48-72 hours), maybe every two weeks or once a month. This is just the icing on the cake.

A few more things to keep in mind while doing intermittent fasting:

• Always do healthy keto when you eat

• It’s easiest to do intermittent fasting daily 

• Look at the purpose of doing it (weight, or health)

My intermittent fasting guide:

• Start out with 3 meals a day with no snacking (add fat to the meal)

• Next, don’t eat unless you’re hungry (go as long as you can without eating)

• Slowly let your body adapt to 2 meals and then 1 meal a day

• Let your body tell you when to eat, adding fat when necessary

• Make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need
