Intermittent fasting for Yogis
Intermittent fasting is more than a way to eat. It is a lifelong journey of refining and creating space in your mind and your body. Cate used to experience challenges with her weight, food sensitivities, and her overall health. In our modern complex world, we often feel stressed, rushed and overwhelmed. Through intermittent fasting, Cate discovered a way to bring back a rhythm into her life that allows her to do so much more with much less. Cate and Jessica discuss how establishing a regular rhythm in our diets allows our bodies to function based off of cellular hunger. This way, we are capable of eating more effectively for what our cells actually need at that time, allowing us to be more resilient and less sensitive, allowing us to Thrive.
Cate discusses how the Body Thrive course is a great way of escalating our commitment to a more rhythmic path due to the support from other people that are going through the same transformation. These peers are capable of holding us accountable for the goals set in Body Thrive. By learning how to automate habits through the course, we can apply these skills to make changes in all other aspects of our lives.

- 12:30 Cate sticks to a primarily fluid diet for most of her day. In her smoothies, she includes seasonal, highly nutritive produce, especially in the morning when she breaks her fast and sets her intention for the day.
- 22:20 – We can only achieve transformation in our lives if we actually escalate our commitment. Body Thrive is a great way to ensure this by providing a group of people going through the same journey who can provide support and serve as accountability partners.
