Intermittent Fasting (Where to start)

Hey Guys! 🌟


It's Coach Lou here, bringing you the skinny on Intermittent Fasting (IF) - the diet trend that's not just about what you eat, but when you eat! 🍏⏰


1️⃣ What's the Deal with IF?

IF isn't just a fancy way to starve yourself. It's about giving your body a break between meals. Think of it as "scheduled eating" - like having VIP reservations at an exclusive restaurant called 'Your Body’!


2️⃣ Health Benefits? Or Just Hype?

Turns out, IF is more than just a fad. Studies suggest it can boost brain health, melt away fat (we all want that, right?), and even extend your lifespan. The secret? It changes how your body finds fuel, switching from carbs to burning your fat stores! 🔥


3️⃣ But... How Do You Do It?

There are a few ways to approach IF:

➡️The 16/8 method: Fast for 16 hours, eat during an 8-hour window. Essentially, skip breakfast, and make lunch your new best friend.

➡️Eat-Stop-Eat: Fast for 24 hours once or twice a week. It's like pressing the reset button on your eating habits!

➡️ From the beginner-friendly 12/12 method (eat for 12 hours, fast for 12) perfect for those who don't want to stray too far from the traditional eating schedule, to the

➡️Warrior Diet's 20/4 method for the seasoned fasting veterans, this infographic is your roadmap to the IF lifestyle.

➡️ Plus, it's got the scoop on the full 24-hour fasts and even the alternate-day fasting technique for those who like to mix things up. It's like a buffet of fasting methods – pick and choose what suits your taste! 👀 Take a peek, pick your path, and let's start this IF adventure with some solid know-how under our belts (which might get a notch looser as we go). And remember, this is just a guide – your experience may vary, and that's perfectly okay!


4️⃣ A Word of Caution

IF isn't for everyone. Listen to your body, and remember, moderation is key. And as always, consult with a health professional before starting any new diet, especially if you have health concerns.

So, there you have it, folks! Intermittent Fasting: a journey of timed eating that could lead to health treasures! 🏴‍☠️🗺


👉 Stay tuned for more tips, and remember, your fitness journey is unique - just like your last meal!


Happy Fasting! 😉
