Module 1: Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is prolonged periods of fasting and feeding. This gives your body time to cleanse, digest, and eliminate.

Everyone should aim for a 12-hour intermittent fasting most days of the week. Ideally, if you can go 14 hours, that is ideal.

But, don’t worry, it’s not as hard as you may think. This 12-hour fast is also known as sleeping. This 12- hour period is the space between your last meal of the day and your first meal of the next day. Which means that if you eat dinner at 7pm on Tuesday, you shouldn’t eat breakfast before 7am on Wednesday. This can help with appetite control, ability to fight cravings, weight loss, and blood sugar.

Getting on a regular schedule of eating and going to be each day will make this fasting practice much easier. I like to practice this especially when I travel for work since I have more control and less external influences (like late night dessert, wine, etc).
