What is it? Is not a diet, but rather a dieting pattern. In simpler terms: it’s making a conscious decision to skip certain meals. By fasting and then feasting on purpose, Intermittent fasting means eating your calories during a specific window of the day and choosing not to eat food during the rest.

Here is what we recommend to our patients:

Step 1:  Lower the amount of carbs and increase fats

Step 2:  Remove snacks and stick to 3 square meals

Step 3:  Restrict the hours of eating to a 8 hrs, a 6 hrs or even a 4 hours window; we call that intermittent fasting:

 _Skip a meal and only stick to specific time window for eating

 _ Have at least two teaspoons of unrefined sea salt a day

 _ During the fasting time, if hungry you can have 2 tablespoons of butter or coconut oil. (Add it to your coffee if you are skipping breakfast).

Make sure:

70% to 80% of the diet consumed is FAT

15% to 25% are PROTEINS

5% to 10% of CARBS

To help with your energy and hunger control during the fasting time, we encourage to eat more fat toward the end of the eating time:

Good Fat Bars that we sell at the office are a great option!

Use applications like MYFITNESSPAL or FatSecret to help you keep track of your carbs and fat intake.
