Intermittent Fasting for Optimal Aging
add years to life and therefore life to your years
After my head injury in July of 2018, I gained 20 pounds from not being active and being depressed. The doctors said that I needed to take it easy for the next 90 days. No stress. No physical activity or exercise. No arguing with CP and telling him what to do. I did it anyways but he just ignored me.
The trauma of my fall not only left a physical scar on my forehead but it left an emotional scar as well. I found myself in a daily emotional state of constant fear for me, the kids and CP.
I didn’t want to leave the house. I wanted to stay safe at home, eat (food was always a comfort for me in the past) and keep my family close. I have a confession to make. As most of you know I’m a holistic health practitioner. I know that eating clean and green is the way to stay healthy and I stopped eating clean.
Mistake #1. Yup. There it is. The 90 days turned into 9 months of depression and self-sabotage, escaping the pain with food. The hole I sunk into was so deep and dark that I couldn’t climb out. Nothing I tried worked or would get me out of the funk I was in. I guess if I’m being honest I was upset with the Lord and felt betrayed by Him so I was trying to fix myself and not wanting to ask HIM for anything. That was until I found myself at the end of my rope asking the Lord to intervene and heal me from this cycle I was in. He led me to do some inner healing around soul trauma and also wanted me to fast. FAST! WHAT???? That was when I discovered intermittent fasting.
I have always been a research-a-holic (part of being a control freak). I dug into intermittent fasting to find out everything I could.
I had just suffered a head trauma, severe concussion and two days in a coma and needed my brain to heal. I needed answers and was not going to sit around just hoping one day things would get better. Besides Intermittent Fasting, my research led me to the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen chambers with head injuries like mine. I happened to have a doctor friend about an hour away from our home that had an oxygen chamber and the use of the chamber made a huge difference for me on my healing journey. Next, I knew I needed to address my emotional eating patterns.
After extensive research on fasting and how it can help your body and brain to heal plus reverse aging and a number of other amazing benefits, I was willing to give it a try. It was pretty simple. I began by having an eating window and a fasting window each day. During my eating window I simply focused on eating plant based. I wanted to keep it easy so if it worked for me, I knew that others could do it it too. In my first 4 weeks I dropped 10 pounds without dieting and also enjoying a feast day once per week. I don’t count macros or calories and I still go out with friends to eat, have fun and keep life simple. I only eat during my 8-hour window. After my first two weeks, I saw my body make great gains in healing itself and I no longer lived life from indoors. I am not only back to where I was… I am better than where I was before my accident.
Intermittent fasting isn’t difficult to add to your life and make a lifestyle of it. It really is easy. You don’t eat less. You just eat less often! The time frame of when you eat will make a huge difference and produce big results, feeling better, looking better, sleeping better, reduce inflammation, weight loss and it will also help to balance hormones and increase muscle.
If it worked for me, it can work for you too! So, let me explain a bit about “IF”.
What Is Intermittent Fasting?
Intermittent Fasting can be defined as an eating window where you cycle between periods of eating and periods of not eating (AKA fasting). It’s really that easy.
Now… There are many different Intermittent Fasting protocols out there, however, the basics are very much the same. You have a period of eating, followed by a period of fasting, and repeat. A popular example that you may already be familiar with, is fasting for 16 hours and then having an 8 hour “eating window” where you eat all of your meals for the day.
Now…The main issue I have with the majority of Intermittent Fasting Protocols out there is that they are far too restrictive. And if you are anything like me, strict or extreme diets just don’t work for me and most of my client patients. This is why I created a program that is much more flexible, enjoyable and very simple to achieve your personal goals.
So How Does Intermittent Fasting Work?
Now that you have a general understanding of what Intermitted Fasting is, let’s cover exactly how it works.
One of the main reasons Intermittent Fasting is such a great way to heal the body and lose those unwanted pounds is because your body responds differently when you are in a “fasted” state compared to when you are in a “feasted” state.
When you eat, your body will spend the next few hours breaking down that food and use it as energy. And as you already know, your body needs this energy in order to function properly.
Now, during the fasted state…
Your body doesn’t have that readily available energy (i.e. the calories from the foods you just ate), so it looks for something else to use as energy. And your body is then more likely to use fat as energy because it’s the most readily available.
Even better, Intermittent Fasting can help teach your body to use the food you consume more efficiently. In short, you are keeping your body at optimal fat burning levels.
Why Should You Include Intermittent Fasting?
Now that we covered the “what” and “how” of Intermittent Fasting, let’s get down to the real question of WHY you should be practicing this in your life so you have optimal health even if you don’t need to lose weight.
ONE OF THE BEST THINGS ABOUT MY PROGRAM IS IT’S A
If I were charging for this program, it will sell for $149. I want to make this affordable for all. Please pray and come up with what you need to invest in this program to change your life. I know that the transformation that you’ll make during this program will be priceless and all the profits go to support His Mission of Love 501c3 Nonprofit. I’m doing this so I can help more people. I run into people all the time here in Ecuador that struggle with sickness or being overweight. They need real answers that work with a simple solution. They need something they can help them heal with the foods from our local markets. I was tired of telling people that I don’t have something here locally as most of my products are shipped in from the states.
I am in my mid 50’s and as we age, many of us battle with reaching and maintaining ideal health and weight goals. We struggle with belly fat, storing fat on our hips, arms, thighs as well as low grade inflammation, which is the root cause of many health challenges such as cancer, autoimmunity, thyroid dysfunction, mental health issues/depression, and hormonal imbalances.
We have become accustomed to not feeling well and we forget how good it feels to feel good. We accept our aches and pains, our weight gain, fatigue, headaches, mood swings, inflammation, and digestive issues, simply because we are aging. I am here to say, don’t believe that lie any longer. You don’t have to settle for less than feeling amazing.
I was in that exact same place of accepting my fate and realized it’s simply a LIE that the enemy serves to us waiting to see if we will take a bite. It’s time to push the enemy’s plate back and so NO MORE!
“IF” for Optimal Aging will not only help you with your health and weight loss, it also will help you release any trauma you may have stored in your body plus significantly improve your relationships with others, your spouse as well as your relationship with God and your intimacy with HIM.
The IFFOM is a plan I designed to help me heal my body and lose weight in less time using the power of Intermittent Fasting. However, after realizing that the majority of Intermittent Fasting plans were way to strict, I decided to create my own variation.
By actually doing “IF”, not only did I see amazing results of feeling more energized, clarity of mind, eliminated depression and fast weight loss… It was really enjoyable and almost felt effortless. By using IFFOA, you will teach your body how to burn fat for fuel and optimize the foods that you eat to enable you to see faster results.
The key to the program is the set-up and simplicity. Everything has been perfectly placed so that you can burn the mostfat in the least amount of time without constantly worrying about your diet.
Gosh NO! This was one of the reasons of why I don’t like many of the Intermittent Fasting plans that are out there because it restricts the foods you can eat. On the IFFOA, you will learn to eat for your body so that you can get your best results possible.
In the beginning, you may find yourself getting hungry during your fasting period, but that’s OK. As your body adjusts, you will discover that you can actually eat MORE food and still get the results you want.
100% YES! In fact, IFFOA is a lifestyle and it issomething I use every single dayas do many of my clients. It’s an incredible easy way to eat and get amazing results!
Nope! This is a very common question that I get when it comes to Intermittent Fasting. However, you don’t need to worry about losing muscle mass with this plan. The way the program is designed it’s meant for you to keep ALL your lean mass muscle while only eliminating fat. It’s a pretty sweet deal if you ask me.
No problem at all. Adding in “IF”intermittent fasting periods can actually help you heal your body, reduce inflammation and reverse aging. So even if you don’t have a lot of fat to lose, you will experience many positive benefits that I have listed above.
You will incorporate the techniques that I will be discussing in the program. I will show you the best foods to focus on, how to get started with shorter fasts, and how to feel good doing it. As always, I recommend talking with your doctor first to if you have any medical conditions that would prevent you from starting the program.
Although these techniques can work for everyone… If you are pregnant, are hypoglycemic, are diabetic or pre-diabetic or have an eating disorders, I always recommend having a consultation with your doctor first to get their approval.
The short answer is yes. The main difference for men and women in this program is the fasting duration. Most women need to add in certain foods during their monthly menstrual cycle. In terms of reaching your personal goals, both women and men can see fantastic results using this system!
Can I really pick my price? YES! I’m making it that simple because I want you to get started with IFFOA today knowing you’ve got everything to gain with zero risk.
