In this video, I want to explain intermittent fasting in an uncomplicated and easy to understand way. Intermittent fasting is omitting the frequency of eating meals. You let your body dictate when to eat and how long to go without eating, the time varies because you should only eat when you are hungry. 

• Slight hunger – at about 8:00 o’clock in the morning, the body will have a hormonal spike of cortisol (stress hormone), which could make you slightly hungry, and then it passes. You can ignore this and keep fasting. 

• Strong hunger – stomach pain, lightheadedness, weakness, and grouchiness are all signs of strong hunger, which means it’s time to eat. 

The more you do intermittent fasting, the more efficiently the body will go from sugar burning to fat burning. But, this takes time. It could even take 3 to 4 months to get fully into ketosis for some people. 

How to do intermittent fasting: 
1. Lower your carbs – this will help you be less hungry and go longer without eating. 
2. Add fat – this can help you go longer from one meal to the next. 
3. Add vegetables – do this for the potassium, magnesium, minerals, and vitamins that help heal insulin resistance, lower insulin, and add fiber that feeds the microbes in the gut—and much more. This can also help you go longer from one meal to the next. 

Things to remember: 
• Low amounts of vegetables will slow the progress 
• Estimation of effort – it could take 3 to 4 months 
• Try tea – hoodia gardenia (appetite suppressant) 
• Keep very busy 
• Consume sea salt and electrolytes – to avoid headaches and fatigue symptoms
• Consume nutritional yeast tablets 
• Be prepared with healthy foods for when you need to eat
