Weeks 1 to 12

Intermittent Fasting

Guidelines:
Begin fasting 12 hours per day because a 12 hour fast for most people is basically just waking up & skipping breakfast and then… Work your way up to 14-to-20 hour daily fast by adding an extra 15-to-30 minutes to your daily fast and… Once you're in the 16-to-20 hour range you'll be in that perfect sweet spot for burning fat faster.

Weeks 1 to 12

Best way to schedule your daily fast

Guidelines:
Its best that you eat your last meal 2-to-3 meals before bedtime so you'll spend less hours awake while you fast and… Here's an example intermittent fasting schedule over a 24 hour period where you fast for 16 hours and eat over an 8 hour period… Sunday night at 8pm: You finish eating your last meal. Sunday night at 11pm: You go to bed (so far you fasted for 3 hours) Monday morning at 7am: You wake up (so far you fasted for 11 hours) Monday 7am-to-12pm: You only spend 5 hours awake fasting Monday at 12pm (noon): You've fasted a full 16 hours Monday from 12pm-to-8pm: You eat 2+ meals at anytime during this period eating an exact amount of calories as laid out by your current diet plan. Monday night at 8pm: Begin 16 hour fast
