Need to drop some weight?
Research shows Intermittent Fasting (IE) is an effective eating tool to boost weight loss.
Plus, it has a load of AMAZING health benefits.
There are several options for IE. I suggest KISS.
Keep it simple sexy,
Just eat within a smaller window of time a few days a week. Have a 11-12 hour window where you don’t east so body can process food.
Or simply….eat dinner much earlier like I did in college and stop munching after dinner..
I consulted my friend Barret Butler, RD, LD, MPH for her professional advice on IE.
She tested a bunch of diets on her friends and clients a few years ago.
Out of ALL the diets, the most weight loss was with her simple plan, a high fiber version of IE, which she has kindly provided for us below.
Give it a try:
1. Eat 3 meals a day and one afternoon snack.
2. Avoid alcohol during Monday-Friday.
3. Two nights a week finish eating dinner by 5pm.
Breakfast (protein, healthy fat, fruit or toast)
Lunch (protein, healthy fat, big salad)
Afternoon Snack (handful of good nuts and kombucha or green tea)
Dinner (protein, steamed, boiled, grilled veggies or big salad).
Bonus tips: No grains or white treats after 1 pm. Protein should be size of your palm.
There you have it!
Try it out for 1 or 2 weeks.
Even if you just start by finishing dinner by 5 or 6pm you may see a big difference. The key is to have 11-12 hours at night – early am free from food so your body can more easily process food and burn the calories.
So why not?
