Intermittent Fasting Group
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).
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.
