Hello my lovelies. To coincide with the launch of Keto Queens Unite, our Facebook group that explores all things keto and intermittent fasting, I am happy to share my second intermittent fasting (IF) guide. Guide #101 is back here. It’s also INTERNATIONAL INTERMITTENT FASTING DAY … 16:8, get it, 16 day of the 8 month, who knew that was a thing!
IF has been instrumental in helping me move my last 8kgs.
I thought the last bit of fat to lose would have been the hardest, but with IF and keto combined it just has not been that hard. Yes, it has taken consistent effort, but I can’t call it hard, as it wasn’t.
Since April I have been doing 16 hour daily fasts, followed by 8 hours of open eating time. So I eat from around 11am to 7pm, not continuously, but as I feel I want to. I love finishing eating by 7pm and then being ‘free from food’ till 11am. Sometimes I go thru to 12 noon or 1pm, without even trying.
Fasting is a simple concept. There are a few nuances that you can introduce to add value to your fasting. What will break your fast, how to best break the fast and what’s a good first meal post fast. Read on …
I have also read that exercising while in a fasted state is more beneficial for weight loss. So I usually exercise before I eat. I do my morning walk, plus my 10 to 20 minutes of light weights or cardio.
As always, just a gentle reminder that this is my pathway, and it may not be yours. I’m sharing my experiences to add value to your journey. Said with love, kindness and zero judgement. Big squeeze, Le xox
ps Some inspiration for the end of that fast!
