Looking forward to digesting (excuse the pun😆) this....heard rave reviews about @drjasonfung work and this book comes highly recommended. I’ve actually started implementing intermittent fasting and finding both easy to implement (I am however fat adapted so can use fat stored for fuel...#lchf ) and feeling amazing with loads of energy and my brain function is crazy sharp. This type of eating window is incorporated into the Naked Athlete nutrition plans as an option to try.
Ahhh so excited!! I hardly do this on my newsfeed BUT I just got my hands on a few coupons for my nutritional systems! For those of you who have been curious and on the fence, I can save you $$ tonight!! The codes expire soon & they are limited so... message me!! <3
Whip it up Wednesday!! I saw these & had to share (courtesy of Clean Food Crush). Recipe below👇 *Sweet Potato Egg Cups*
These egg cups are so darn cute! They are simple, family friendly, and seriously DELICIOUS! Make em' for your favorite people this weekend! .
Makes about 3-4 servings

1/2 Tbsp smoked paprika
6 large eggs

Rear view of my #TRXclass . My first workout while in a #fastedstate I used to have fatty teas before and during my workout...actually all the time, I couldn't understand why my weight kept creeping up, even while following a 3#aippaleo#ketodiet I chalked it up to #perimenopause . Now I realise that all the fat I was consuming during what I thoughtt was #intermittantfasting must have been triggering an insulin response and was actually hindering #lipolysis , aka #fatburing . I'm still in shock I've dropped 10 lbs ( unintentionally) so quickly since fasting started endof December. Fasting reset my system so I could tap into fat stores. Last time I was at this same weight, I was weak and still controlled by mu #UC#IBD . Now, I'm strong and never felt better. #ihavemuscles#extendedfastingrocks#gettingbetterwithage
Ahhh so good!! Time to break my morning fast. This took 5 mins to make. Eggs, avocado, GF toast, tomatoes, spinach. #proteincarbsfats Now it's time to work on my website before I get Royce in an hour😵😬 Wish me luck!
Wow! So happy for Cynthia's transformation... #TransformationTuesday "This is my Journey starting November 2015 - December 2017.
I was always a small person between 120lb - 130lbs and very active growing up. Even after having 3 children I managed to get my weight off.
Once I hit the late 30's I noticed it creeping up on me.
It didn't help that I was addicted to sugar😣
I would wake in the middle of the night craving so it would be nothing for me to eat a bag of cookies or candy or even a couple of Ice Cream Sandwiches.
It was aweful😭 At the age of 51 it was a bad year for me. Menopause set in at the highest point.
I was cranky, Moody, hot flashes and could not sleep.
It affected my marriage😣
I spent 3 months at the IWK Kids sick Hospital with my Youngest Daughter who had delivered a baby weighing 1 lb. And he passed away at 3 months😭
It was a very emotional time.
So I tried to eat my emotions away.
I was at 180 lbs and feeling lost with no self-esteem 😭😭 This was my why to start a Healthy Journey... This has been life changing for me.
💥My marriage is back on track.
💥My Daughter is in University becoming a Nurse so her son in heaven will be proud of his moma😍
💥my body is thanking me for all the amazing Nutrition.
My weight has been maintaining at 130-133 during 2017
I am now sharing ISAGENIX as my Full Time Job💚

To all of my buddies who I used to play football with... God knows I have sustained plenty impacts to the head. 90-120+ head impacts per game... but games were easy. Each practice yielded much more! 5 years, day in and day out. Sometimes double days, triple days, etc.
I can still feel them. I can feel how it impacts my mental flow, memory, and though process. If you even have a remote inkling that you have been impacted similarly consider taking care of yourself NOW.
1. Stop drowning in sugar
2. Listen to this episode for the Rogan Podcast... great way to start https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-joe-rogan-experience/id360084272?mt=2#episodeGuid =25bb887cbd7c46bb1aa5236ada95f69a
3. Consider cleaning up your body with cellular cleansing and autophagy...ask me more, I can help.
4. Embrace it, acknowledge it, and take care of yourself.
A confession: I'm afraid to bulk. I want to train and compete in my first fitness competition. I lift hard. I eat clean. I know I need to eat more calories than what I'm used to to really grow my muscles. The truth is, I'm afraid to bulk. I know that I am very in control of what I put into my mouth, but I used to be different. My mind can't get past too much food equaling the way I used to be. When I used to be overweight. Is this struggle just my own? Get me out of my own head! Is there anyone out there who can relate? Food is more for fuel, and less for Comfort these days. I have found many great meals that are satisfying to me and also healthy.
I am going against the grain of my own mind and eating a bit more than what I am used to with the goal of putting more muscle than what I have now. I am forcing myself into a mini bulk because of so many women I have seen who have Success With It.
I like to look being you around, so I'm sticking with a mini bulk and only upping my calories by a couple hundred extra per day. This seems to be working. As the weather warms up here in the Pacific Northwest, my plan is to shed the weight so my muscles will pop.
I'm ready to test not only my physical endurance, but my mental endurance too.
Let's see how this adventure goes!:)
What is it? The journey of 1000 miles begins with the first step. This is my first step. A lifestyle change. I have tried changing the way I eat and keeping my health at the forefront only to go back each time. This time I've made this account to add, umm, accountability. .
I'm starting today living the LCHF/Keto lifestyle. With a 20/4 IF and a small home gym setup. Wish me luck. .
"The body is re-educated by a fast. It unlearns habits of overeating and polluting. It is born again. It inclines toward a natural state. It wants only as much food as is required for maintenance. It prefers the kinds of foods that are natural to the taste and harmonious to the digestive system." ✨ ~ Dr. Allan Cott, author of Fasting As a Way of Life
Day 6 and going strong 💪🌱 .
Today's juice has extra celery for added sodium and electrolytes after yesterday's hike, which has me feeling amazing today. I have some pineapple that's still ripening, and plan on mixing up the recipes this week with different veggies. My mom said that if I continue it through the weekend that she would be starting her fasting today, so I'm definitely in it for a few more days to join her. .
Swipe 👉 Included is my favorite juice recipe ever - perfect in a large vino glass and a hot detox bubble bath (add a cup of epsom salts for a gentle detox) 😊
It's a cold weekend so I'm just going to sit outside in the sun for a bit ☀️ Day 4 of one of the best juice cleanses I've been on. They say the first three days are the hardest, which were surprisingly a breeze. I did mostly water fasting yesterday until an evening juice, and today I woke up feeling fantastic. I don't have plans for how long I'll go, but compared to the last couple I've done, this one is a breeze. .
My concoction thus far, per juice: one cucumber, half of a grapefruit (today was a whole 🍊), two carrots, a whole lemon 🍋, cayenne pepper 🌶️ and ginger. The citrus and cayenne are excellent for breaking up mucus in the body (fascinating topic for another day, read The Mucusless Diet), and cucumber is an excellent source of silica for healthy hair, skin, nails, and electrolytes. The cayenne and ginger are also very warming during winter cleanses, so I added a bit more today for greater resilience against the cold front that hit Thursday night and is supposed to dip into colder temps on Monday. Welcome to bipolar weather season. Standby, it'll be in the 90's shortly❄️🌬️☄️🌦️🌥️⛅🌤️🌞🌡️🔥
Intermittent fasting (IF). What is it good for?🎶 Absolutely everything!
Well, almost. There are a few different types of IF ranging from 12 hours to days going without food depending on your health goals ⌛
. . .
Periods of fasting are shown to decrease IGF1 which is a marker of inflammation, improves insulin resistance (associated with PCOS and the hallmark of Diabetes) as well as improve conditions such as Psoriasis and acne 💁
