Do less and benefit more with the all-encompassing Intermittent Fasting Diet Guide, and start your journey to a happy and healthier lifestyle.

Heard of the phrase, but don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

Intermittent fasting works by restricting the window of time in which you eat food, for example only eating two meals per day within an 8-hour time period. It is a key therapeutic tool for a variety of hormone- and health-related concerns, and in turns aids weight loss. 

So what are you waiting for? Dive straight in to discover: 
- The fasting strategies available to you and learn how to select the best one to suit your individual needs and goals
- Learn about the best foods to eat for weight loss and decide which diet is best for you
- Select a meal plan that’s already fine-tuned your suggested macronutrient intake
- Enjoy over 50 delicious recipes that are rich in flavor and high in nutrients. 

This wonderful wellness book is accessible, easy-to-read, and is structured into two parts. 
Part 1 will help to uncover the science of fasting and identify your goals by selecting one of various fasting programs. Choose from several eating patterns: the 16/8 method; the Warrior Diet; the 5:2 diet; intuitive fasting and alternate-day fasts. Learn the answers to any burning questions you may have, such as  ‘Can I drink water and coffee while fasting?’ and ‘Is it okay to exercise while intermittent fasting?

In Part 2, discover a plethora of meal plans and low-carb recipes that will aid your fasting diet. Meal plans are developed so that food leaves you satisfied for hours or even days. With lower carb, higher fat, and moderate protein, recipes offer you the key nutrition you need to make your fasts productive and sustainable.

Dr. Becky Gillaspy is your fasting coach and will be with you every step of the way! With thorough up-to-date research and action-ready plans, you will be well on your way to achieving a more healthy, adaptable body with this easy-to-navigate nutrition book.
