When first starting my health journey about 4 – 5 years ago, I had no clue what a positive impact this would have on every aspect of my life. We don’t always see this when starting out because we are in the moment and the results don’t always present themselves instantly. It was a struggle for me to remain consistent in the gym, create ALL new eating habits, and having the patience and persistence to continue this lifestyle FOREVER. Where this has led me is truly indescribable and I hope to help you start your journey and see your full potential after reading this.
Do you find yourself on the go constantly? Are you too busy to cook a full course meal or pack a lunch every day? Or maybe you are just looking for a way to drop weight FAST. At some point using a meal replacement such as a shake or a bar may have crossed your mind. The real question is, are meal replacements a healthy option?
Two weeks ago, I wrote about Intermittent Fasting and shared small bits on the research I had done prior to trying it for the first time. I explained what Intermittent Fasting was and shared the method I chose to start with (16/8 Method: fast for 14-16 hours and eat during an 8- 10-hour window). Since then, I have had both ups and downs with this new way of eating and can’t wait to share my experience with you.
Okay, so I have so much to say about intermittent fasting that it’s hard to figure out where to start. I chose to use this as a blog topic because it seems to be the new wave of “how to eat”. I told myself I wouldn’t blog about anything I wouldn’t at least try. So with that being said, I have been doing intermittent fasting for the past couple of weeks.
You may not have heard of the term “Food Bullying”, however, I am sure you have felt the effects of it at some point in your life. We all have those few friends or family members who just don’t quite get why you are making different food choices. Whether it’s to make more nutritious decisions, lose a few pounds, preparing for a body building competition, or going gluten free to avoid bloating; keep in mind it is all YOUR decision on how you decide to fuel your body daily.
