Intermittent Fasting for Fat Loss

Intermittent fasting is interesting.

Not everyone needs to drop 40, 50, 60+ pounds.

Many people are in good shape – but they’re not 100% satisfied.

They struggle with the last 5 to 10-pounds of stubborn fat.

It can be frustrating to try to exercise more and eat less – only to see NO RESULTS.

This is common with many of my clients.

Instead of exercising longer and harder, and eating less and less – try Intermittent Fasting (IF) to lose the last 5-10 pounds of stubborn fat!

But, it’s not a one size fits all.

This is how to Intermittent fasting:

This is a powerful and effective way to drop the last 5 to 10 of stubborn fat and a way of life!

Goal of Intermittent fasting is to lower insulin in your body.

  • Benefits of lower insulin include:
    • Body fat loss
    • Improved energy
    • Improved focus
    • Less inflammation
    • Lower blood pressure
    • Lower blood sugar
    • Improved health
  • I believe full Intermittent fasting and alternate day IF is unnecessary and very difficult
  • You don’t have to starve – I’d advise not to
  • Food selection is still very important (balanced protein/fats/carbs)
  • Effects of IF are magnified if you are also doing exercise training; especially strength training
  • Exercise is best when done fasted – up to 200% fat loss increase
  • Workout frequency is important and varies per individual
    • Limitations (Orthopedic: knees, shoulders, back, hips)
    • Starting point
    • Goals
    • Schedule
  • Tracking with Accountability – to measure success and if/when changes need to be made
