Fasting the Healthy Way

Short-term fasting is good for your body.


The key to fasting is to focus on what your body needs, not what it wants.


An ideal short-term fast consists of going without food for about 16 hours, depending on your health and physical stamina.


Most people have an easier time beginning this fast at night since they are already fasting while they sleep.


Most of Us Want Junk Food


The best way to get rid of that desire is to starve it!


Most diets can be better started with a 16-24 hr fast, not only for detoxing purposes but because it boosts metabolism by an average of 14%.


The main reason we need to fast?


Your body and mind are tricky.


They sometimes don’t know what they need, but they sure will tell you what you want.


You need to know what true hunger is. Your body will lie to you and tell you you're hungry because of insulin spikes, emotions, boredom, and various reasons.


It is best to hit reset.


Starve those negative things away and give yourself time to think about more positive things.


Self-Discipline


It takes self-discipline to overcome bad habits (Philippians 4:13).


I recently lost about 16 pounds in 16 days with intermittent fasting and the keto diet. If you do it right (the healthy way), it works!


If you want to stop stress-eating, eating junk food, or overeating you will have to clean up your diet and the best way to begin is by fasting all that junk that has your body weighed down.


Intermittent fasting is the best way to control your appetite and clean out your gut. Fasting puts you back in control of what your body does.


Your spirit is in control of your body, not the other way around.


Controlling and counting your calories is also a good way to take control.


Using a carb manager app is a good way to keep up with your calories. Calories can creep up on you.


We live in a carb-filled world so keeping up with what you eat is a good way to control your appetite.


Carb apps or calorie counter apps help you to stay on top of things.




Time to detox!


Stress-eating is triggered for many reasons and causes weight gain.


If you allow yourself to stress eat, your body can get used to this physical & emotional high and it will trigger hunger hormones on a regular basis.


With the exception of a few months here and there (which caused weight gain every time), I’ve changed the way I eat and what was once a diet is now a lifestyle.


Discipline is like a muscle, you must work it until it's strong.


I’ve noticed the less I eat, the less I want. The more I eat, the more I want.


I’ve been through all of the dieting highs and lows.


I’ve crashed and burned and can tell you what works for me. What works for you may have to come through trial and error as well, as we are all made up differently.


It is best to find what works and stick with it. Dieting roller coasters are not healthy.


The best way to stop the process is to stop eating for a period of time.


The best thing we can do for our body is to detox it by going without food for a short period of time, drinking water throughout the day, and eating mostly fresh vegetables and fruits when we do eat.


Better nutrition usually produces a better mood, as emotions are controlled by our diet.


Ever notice you don't have the energy to make it through a workout?


Stamina is our mental and emotional capacity to sustain prolonged activities or stressful situations. Our stamina can be hindered by a bad diet.


Our bodies are pretty good at flushing toxins and negative things out but they can become sluggish due to the junk we put in them.


Americans are getting more unhealthy as time goes on and it's time to do something about it.


Let's get up, get moving, and stop eating junk!


It really is that simple. You just have to get your mind accustomed to it. Once you overcome the mental block, the rest is easy peasy!
