Why do we fast? In the FREE E-Book below, we’ll dive into a totally new way of fasting not just for your spiritual health but for your physical health too – it’s a critical part of your body’s reset that will show you a whole new way of living and eating! As it turns out when you eat can be more important than what you eat. Fasting is typically used for short periods of time, but here, instead, we’ll introduce you to a way to bring fasting into your daily life – you can literally do this every single day, and reap the health and spiritual benefits, for the rest of your life.
A New Way Of Eating
Now that you know what fasting is, and why we do it, it’s time to move into how you can start fasting in a completely new way
– a way that would allow you to practice it every single day.
Think about how you could change your relationship with food and hunger if you fasted daily.
What I’m about to share with you, is new way of eating – one that will reward you with weight loss benefits, but which will also help you become more clear-headed and
mindful, and which will clear your relationship with bad foods. The truth is, new research suggests fasting is really good for you in general, and it’s especially good for fat loss. And while traditional religious fasting lasts for days at a time, with nothing, or very little to eat, what we’re proposing here is different: it’s called intermittent fasting. And it’s a practice that you could literally do every single day of your life. It’s simple – eat as much as you want of all the plentiful foods, such as fruits and vegetables and unprocessed goodness, but the key is to only do so within a 8-hour window. For example, if you had breakfast at noon, you can have any amount of the allowed foods until 8 PM that evening, and then you can’t eat again until noon the next day.
“Fasting is the single greatest natural healing therapy. It is nature’s ancient, universal ‘remedy’ for many problems.”

Sample 16/8 Intermittent Fasting Timeline
This could be your day-to-day life as far as routine goes. Stick to this as much as possible and you’ll get health benefits benefits to boot!
When the 8-hour window starts and stops is up to you. The great part is sleeping is included in the 16-hour fasting time. The only thing you can
consume during the fasting period is water and unsweetened tea or coffee. It’s really important to note that you should absolutely try to limit all processed and
sugary foods during your 8-hour window. We know that sometimes though, this just isn’t possible. We are all human right?! It’s ok to cheat every once in a while if you want
that muffin or slice of pizza, but remember that long term weight loss comes from nourishing your body with nutrients and natural food.
Don’t Forget The Water
During this fasting period, the time outside of your 8-hour eating period, you’ll need to drink a lot of water – at least two liters per day. Here’s why…
there are many metabolites that build from fat mobilization and have to be eliminated from the body.
Working out is up to you and your normal routine. Maintain your normal routine OR amp up your workouts. I prefer to workout early in the morning. Then cool down, shower and dress. Then slowly make a meal. I eat how I feel and I never get too full.
