A Simple Guide to Intermittent Fasting (includes one day RAW VEGAN meal plan)

What is 16/8 Intermittent Fasting?

Intermittent fasting is a pattern of eating that alternates between periods of fasting and non-fasting.

What are the benefits?

Studies suggest that intermittent fasting can support healthy weight loss, improve insulin sensitivity, reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, and promote healthy brain function. Intermittent fasting is also thought to promote a cellular repair process called autophagy, which may protect against disease and assist in a healthier stronger more resilient immune system.

How can I Intermittent Fast?

There are many different ways to do intermittent fasting, but the simplest method that I recommend involves restricting food intake to 2-3 healthy meals spread over an eight-hour feeding period each day (e.g. between 12pm and 8pm).

During the other 16 hours fasting period, infused water, herbal teas, coconut oil and organic bone broth or vegan broths can be consumed.

What should I eat?

During the feeding period, there’s no need to purposely restrict calories or to binge or overeat. It is also important to remember that every time we eat is an opportunity to nourish the body and mind.

Eliminate Inflammatory foods such as sugar, dairy, refined carbohydrates, gluten, sodas, alcohol and any processed or packaged Foods.

Focus on high-quality whole foods, organic meats and poultry, Wild fish, bone or vegan broths, organ meats, eggs, starchy and non-starchy vegetables, fermented vegetables, low or moderate glycemic fruits, nuts and seeds, good quality fats, sea or Himalayan salt, superfoods, herbs and spices.

How many days should I Intermittent Fast per week?

Start with one or two days per week initially. Some people might discover that intermittent fasting is very easy and might wish to do it more days or all the days. There’s no right or wrong way to do this. Each person can experiment to see what works best.

If your body responds well to Intermittent Fasting, you might wish to incorporate an extended (forty-hour) fast once or twice a month.

Are there places that offer specialised Intermittent Fasting Retreats?

Is Intermittent Fasting recommended for everyone?

Intermittent Fasting Protocols should be used sensibly and are not generally recommended for pregnant women, children, people with eating disorders, and people with adrenal fatigue. Athletes can still Intermittent Fast but can easily modify the protocol to incorporate more protein during the feeding period or by adding organic bone broth during the fasting period.

👉🏻Yoga is a practice of peeling away labels of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ and embracing whatever form of beauty you bring to your mat each day. _ _ 👉🏻 Through practice, we move from unknowing into knowing, from darkness to illumination. _ _ 👉🏻When we follow the breath into the body, when we focus our gaze inwards, we invite light into the shadows. _ _ 👉🏻With practice, this process often becomes a journey that surprises us, that delights us. _ _ 👉🏻 Our bodies change—become stronger, lighter, more resilient. And our attitudes change—we change the way we react to discomfort and pain, the way we perceive our lives, the way we see the world we live in. _ _ 👉🏻 We learn to accept that nothing is permanent, that each practice will be different. _ _ 👉🏻We learn to let go of preconceived ideas of what we can or cannot do. We welcome every possibility. _ _ 👉🏻Kim’s mindbody yoga system teaches the Cultivation and Harmony of the mental, the pranic and the physical bodies. _ _ 👉🏻The lessons are taught within a Buddhist framework with even instruction of the three bodies in congruence with two philosophies: the pure teachings of the Patanjali sutras and the Ashtanga eight limbs of yoga. - _ #amitywellness #yogathailand #healthiswealth #inspiredliving #wellnessprograms #benddontbreak #nutritioncoach #rawfoodlife #phuket🌴
