I’m not losing weight. I’m getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again.

Did your weight loss start off great, but now the scale hasn’t budged for months? Or are you struggling to even get started?

Intermittent fasting is a way to rev-up your metabolism and switch gears into fat burning mode. Intermittent fasting is for the purpose-driven, result focused, go-gettings out there. Strategically avoiding foods in a controlled environment can maximize your weight loss so you can accomplish your most extravigant dreams.

YESTERDAY you said TOMORROW.  The time to focus on your health is NOW.

How does it work?
An Intermittent fasting practice shifts the body from burning glucose/glycogen to burning fat for fuel. Most toxins are stored in our fat cells. Fat provides a storage resivore and a halfway house for toxins to be held before the body can eliminate them.  Having a high toxic burden may be the reason you are hitting a plateau. The goal of intermittent fasting is to cause a mass exodus of toxins from the body and with this body fat as well.  Eliminating toxins is one of the best things about eliminating body fat.


Why you must exercise in combination with fasting.

Exercise increases fat breakdown, gives your metabolism a boost and regulates insulin levels. You may have heard skipping meals lowers your metabolism. Exercise combats the metabolism fall that occurs with any weightloss program. When an intermittent fasting program  is combined with a short purposeful, and result-driven exercise program your body shifts from buring glucose/glycogen to burning fat for fuel. By increasing the time between meals and strategically exercising you are expediting your body’s fat burning potential.


Foods to Swap.

If you really need a kick start focus on high protein, low carb. Swab out starchy foods like breads and pasta for a root vegetable such as beets, sweet potato, or turnip. Do a trial reduction of your “starch” limiting it to one serving a day. For most people this is difficult, so leaving it for the end of the day will prevent you from over doing it. Simplify things and focus on ratios for your main meal. This means that 1/2 of your plate should be vegetables, 1/4 starch, 1/4 protein.


Food Sensitivities?

Do you notice certain foods make you bloated, gassy, tired or just make you feel unwell. There is the potential that you are sensitive to some foods in your diet. Identifying and eliminating these sensitivities may be enough to fast track your weight loss.


With the right game plan in place, you can achieve your health outcomes and accomplish your highest potential. If your weight is a blockade in your life and you are serious about committing to change, then lets get started.
