Trying Intermittent Fasting

Try intermittent fasting, even if it’s just 2-3 days per week.
Your stomach and digestive tract focuses on digestion when you eat and healing when it’s empty.
If you constantly have food in your stomach it’s only focusing on digestion and not healing.
1. I will usually drink a large iced coffee in the AM with unsweetened almond milk. It keeps me full until 11 AM.
2. Do it on days you are busy so you don’t think about eating. Get up and go to work.
3. If you are having a hard time not eating, consider using a fiber powder mixed with water to help make you feel full during the fast.
4. If you find it starts to cause constipation increase magnesium until you go more frequently. Any changes in metabolism can cause constipation.
It’s not suggested if you have very unstable blood sugar levels. You need to work with your primary doctor if that’s the case.
