Morning guys so I thought I should share my experience to help you. I know how difficult clean eating can be especially the first two weeks, but here are few tips than can help you. First and for most get rid of all the food you used to take,give out the rice,unga, sugar,potatoes,soda just give it all out. Secondly you have to shop for better food,stock your fridge with more fruits and Vegetables. Then buy a blender for the smoothies and water bottles so that you are hydrated even when you leave the house. Please stay focused, stay motivated.

QUESTION 1: WHAT IS IF (Intermittent Fasting) Intermittent rhythm of meal timing that maximizes the hormonal benefits of cycling caloric intake. Instead of eating many meals throughout the day, fasting and feasting gives you a compressed eating window (typically 16 hours of fasting with 8 hours of feasting). While skipping just the occasional meal can be beneficial, cycling periods of fasting (usually in the morning) and feasting (usually at night) can aid detoxification, encourage fat burning, and improve immune function. Fasting, while historically quite normal isn’t common in a world abundant with fast-food, meal-replacement shakes, and “eating 6+ times a day is healthy” dogmatism. For millions of people across the world, regular fasting is commonplace and has been part of spiritual practice for thousands of years. But before that, fasting was simply a way of life. With no storable grains, and few other foods that stayed fresh for very long, most of our ancestors experienced both feast and famine on a regular basis. When game was scarce, seasons changed, or the pickings were slim, hunter-gatherers did without. To reap the full rewards of the Wild lifestyle, you might consider going without occasionally, too. Eating all the time is not normal. But the good news is that when you get into a pattern of fasting and feasting on healthy low-carb foods, you can feel better, look better, and create your new normal. ANTIAGING EFFECTS OF FASTING If you’re over the age of thirty, and especially if you lead a sedentary lifestyle, you’ve likely entered a phase known as somatopause, or age-related growth hormone deficiency. Natural production of growth hormone declines beginning in our twenties, leading to a reduction in lean body mass and bone mineral density and an increase in body fat— especially abdominal fat. As growth hormone declines over time, you begin to look and feel older. Here’s the good news: Fasting sets in motion a hormonal chain of events that not only burns fat but also protects hard-earned muscle. After approximately sixteen to twenty-four hours in a fasted state, our bodies release a massive surge of growth hormone. One study showed that while fasting for twenty-four hours, human growth hormone increased an average of 1,300% in women and nearly 2,000% in men. But be careful: Depending on your unique situation, many find that you do begin to lose muscle with fasts that are longer than twenty-four hours. Listen to your body and eat when you’re hungry. Another activity that can lead to a dramatic increase in growth hormone is high-intensity interval exercise like the Wild 7 Workout.(Google is your friend ;P ) Combining fasting with high-intensity exercise can provide synergistic effects to boost growth hormone. In adulthood, the presence of growth hormone leads to a healthier body composition. Benefits of Growth hormone: Keeps your body lean Increases synthesis of new protein tissues to promote muscle recovery and repair Decreases fat accumulation Strengthens bones Protects your organs from the decline that occurs with age Promotes healthy hair and nail growth Improves circulation Gives a more favorable cholesterol profile Decreases signs and symptoms of aging Did I mention that fasting is free and you can start right now? Fasting signals your cells that it’s time to focus the body’s energy on conserving, restoring, and repairing your body’s internal machinery. You can think of fasting as “cleanse” mode, where your cells scavenge your body for free radicals, agents of disease, and damaged cells and recycles them to conserve energy. The trade-off is that too much fasting can stress the adrenals, so occasional luxurious feasting help keep the body in balance. HOW TO GET STARTED NOW How do you start? Simple. Tomorrow, make lunch your first meal. If you stop eating at 8pm and don’t eat until noon the next day, that’s sixteen hours of fasting— perfect for stimulating growth hormone, which boosts metabolism, builds muscle, and slows aging. The fact that you sleep through the majority of your fast makes it relatively painless. If you’ve trained your body to expect food every two hours, then you might feel hungry the first few times you try fasting. But it will all be in your head. Running just on the fat stored in their bodies, most people can walk from CBD to Kitengela without needing a bite to eat.Give yourself a week or two for your body to relearn how to run on fat, and you’ll find fasting gets easier. Fasting shouldn’t feel like forcing yourself not to eat While fasting, you’re liberated from having to think about food so you can spend your energy elsewhere. That little voice that usually nags every few minutes, “Hey, is it time to eat? I think it’s time to eat!” now has a response that works every time. “There’s an epic feast coming tonight,” you might say. “No need to bother me until then.” After all, you have important things to do today. The best day for your first fast is your day off, perhaps Sunday, so you won’t fall prey to the stress of the workday. Do your best to get plenty of sleep and have a satisfying feast the night before your first fast to keep cortisol in check. If you fast from 8pm till noon the next day, that’s 16 hours… easy, right? HOW TO BEAT FALSE HUNGER True hunger is generally experienced in the body and brain, not in the stomach. If you get light-headed or weak, or your workout suffers, you’re probably fasting too much. It may take some practice, but once you reconnect with the feeling of true hunger, you can follow your body’s lead and eat whenever the feeling strikes. Whenever you get hungry, ask yourself: Am I thirsty? Drink water and cravings may subside. You may add pink himalayan salt to aid with electrolytes. Green tea and black coffee are allowed too. Am I emotional or bored? Wait twenty minutes, go for a walk, or exercise. Did I drink alcohol recently? Your body is probably tricking you into thinking you’re hungry because your insulin is out of whack. Did I eat sugar, grains, fried food, or other “carbage”? Your insulin and blood sugar are unstable. You probably don’t need more food. Wait it out. Have I exercised today? Try it and you might find you’re not hungry anymore. Am I fasting too much? Go ahead and eat. Bonus if you make raw green veggies the first thing to hit your belly. WHO SHOULDN’T USE INTERMITTENT FASTING There are certain circumstances under which intermittent fasting isn’t ideal or shouldn’t be used. While it is an effective tool, everyone’s biochemistry is different and can vary at different stages or times in your life. You should NOT use intermittent fasting if you are: Suffering from adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue can occur when you are under a lot of intense stress, have suffered an infection or illness, or are severely sleep-deprived. Adrenal fatigue makes you very tired, and it affects the way you metabolize your food. Pregnant or nursing. To sustain the increased caloric needs of growing baby and/or milk production, you should be eating regularly. Have or are recovering from an eating disorder. It’s important to have and maintain a healthy relationship with food. If you have an eating disorder, please seek professional help. If you are recovering from an eating disorder or have struggled with eating disorders in the past, please do not use intermittent fasting as a weight-loss tool. Are a child. Children are growing while they sleep and need a good quality breakfast to replenish their spent energy. Consult your healthcare professional prior to beginning a fast if you have any condition you are concerned will be negatively affected by a change in diet. And be careful of under-eating for days or weeks on end – it’s still important to make sure you get enough energy (primarily fat) from your food to help your body feel and perform at its best. As always, listen to your body! 🙂
