 Summary:

Intermittent fasting (IF) is a method whereby you are only allowed to consumed solid food during the time your window opens. For an example you may only eat solid foods from 1pm-7pm. OR 10am-4PM,which is a 6 hr eating window, some of you may want an 8hr window. You may format this window to fit your lifestyle, always being mindful that you cannot eat solid food outside of your window. The science behind this can be found on the web in various articles, studies and videos on youtube.

 How To Follow Intermittent fasting- raw food diet :

Start your day off with juicing, smoothies, or other fluids, water, tea, coffee, almond milk, coconut water. Avoid eating any solid foods until your "eating window" opens. Eat as much fruits, vegetables, sprouted legumes, as you desire. If you are a none vegan/ vegetarian you may limit cooked meat and fish once or twice a week. Eggs are okay as an additional protein source. Stay away from all processed foods, eat mostly organic, no grains or wheat, processed sugars, NO fried anything. Steamed vegetables are okay once in a while. Eat nutritionally dense food, combining live enzymes (raw)to promote health. Calorie counting is used in reverse for this plan. You actually need to monitor that you are consuming enough calories to fill your 6-8 hour window. It becomes difficult to squeeze calories into 6hrs when you're eating mostly fruits and vegetables. Weight-loss is inevitable, although the plan is designed for prolonged life regeneration, cell renewal and age-defying results. Juicing is essential in this plan, and is done at least 3 times a week. Look up raw food recipe sites and juicing site to help facilitate additional calorie intake.

About / History

I started Intermittent fasting at around my 130 lbs mark after I noticed a plateau. I kept calorie counting and working out to no avail. The benefits of "IF" is innumerable, however it is NOT for everyone. Do research before picking this one. Now I add a raw food diet to this program for health reasons. Today I am more vibrant, healthy, slimmer, toner than I have ever been in my whole life. The weight loss is effortless, in fact I have to increase my calories in order to NOT get too slim. I started May 5th 2012 @ 152 lbs plateaued July 2012 and started the IF plan in November 2012 and combined the raw food plan January 2013. Today I weigh 106 LBS with 15% body fat. and mostly lean muscle mass. That's 46 lbs in under 1 yr with most of it lost in the past 4 months.I'm 40 years old with 1 kid and married.
