How to Intermittent Fast for Weight Loss

How to Intermittent Fast for Weight Loss

You've seen some success stories and are ready to take the plunge! Starting your weight loss journey with an intermittent fast can be challenging, daunting and yet highly rewarding. Use our top tips to start yours in the right way!

1. Choose your fast!

Don't do your first fast as a dry one (no water or food!). You can start with just limiting your eating times - e.g. eating between the hours of 12pm-8pm. To help you with energy, you may opt for black coffee or even a calorie-free drink.

If you want to go more keto style, MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) oil or powder can help you get through to meal time and give you the energy you need to be on track with your day. Technically, MCTs have calories and break your fast, but they are processed through the liver which takes the pressure of your digestion (and gives you energy!).

As MCTs have calories, they WILL break your fast, but the chemical structure in these fats means that they are processed via the liver which makes them an easy source of energy, and takes pressure off digestion.

Looking for other drink options? Check these out!

2. Intermittent Fast Diet Tip:

Make sure you eat enough! Try slow digesting fats, more fibre and muscle-building protein. For example, a hearty steak with broccoli can leave you feeling full for hours.  Try to avoid fast-acting carbs like cereal or a big bowl of pasta! 

Extra dinner ideas:

  • Chicken breast and roasted vegetables

  • Vegan green curry with quinoa

3. Remember The Intermittent Fast Benefits:

  • Clear thought
  • Help with digestion
  • Healthy blood sugar
  • Less time and money on food!
  • Meal time structure
  • Health support and longevity support
  • Weight loss
