10 Tips For Intermittent Fasting with Ayurvedic Wisdom
I just in yet another Ayurveda book that fasting is dangerous. I couldn’t disagree more. The power of aligning to an optimized digestive fire involves some serious fasting. I love intermittent fasting – the 16/8 leangains.com method -where you fast for 16 hours per 24 hour cycle and have 8 hours of feed time.
In today’s episode, I give you my 10 best tips in hopes of inspiring you to stop eating so frequently. I want you to experience the joys of deep fat metabolism. And if you want support in transitioning – get your a$$ in the Yogidetox. In there, me and my team can escalate your bliss.
I rap with you about my Ayurvedic Experiment with Intermittent Fasting:
- It's only challenging for a week.
- Big Green Smoothie or Juice (with soaked Chia seeds for great elimination), an hour later – 2 eggs/toast or whatever, then a big meal about 5 hours later
- If you want to evolve what you're eating, do that after you change WHEN you're eating.
- Self massage with tons of oil
- Don't give up coffee or tea if you drink it
- Be ahead in the hydration game
- Eat better oils – I've been using avocado, and small amounts of dark organic chocolate. when i go back to the USA I suspect I'll use more soaked almonds and almond butter.
- If you can – sell your dining partners on trying the 16/8 for a week
- Do something you enjoy in the time you'd otherwise be eating. I take a walk, a swim, play with family, do yoga.
- Don't worry about your social calendar in the long run. How you feel opens new gateways and relationships. Youll find your rhythm. Expect great evolution.
