2 Weeks Flash Diet and Intermittent fasting experience so far (7 days in)

Hello babes!

 

How are you? Hope amazing, Okay so you should have guide I II and III, you can find them on our blog at:

https://abs2bfitness.com/blogs/b-blog

Alright, so for this quick guide I wanted to send you a flash diet; for when we have that upcoming beach trip, or that wedding, or that photoshoot.

BE AWARE that these type of diets are not very good for your body, you cannot them very often or try to maintain this kind of eating behavior long term OKAY, I am just making this clear before some one comes and write on the blog that I am promoting FAD diets.

 

What is a FAD diet?I know many of our customers at ABS2B are athletes and gym rats and  I am PRETTY sure 90% of you have a master in dieting an training, but anyways I will explain here what they are:

 

A FAD DIET is:

They are simply an eating regimen that promises a very rapid weight lost and other heath advantages, they are usually, they are usually highly restrictive, so this is why they are NOT good for long term goals.

 

This are quick fix when you want to lose some pounds or look thinner for some event or whatever but most likely all the weight you loose will be mainly water, and little fat and most likely you will gain it back.

Anyways, I am writing this because I have many girlfriends that are always asking me: Amanda I have a wedding in 2 weeks, or I am going to a cruise, what is the best I can do in 2 weeks, so here it is:

Ok babes you can follow this flash plan for 2 weeks, this will make you lose some good 5-10 pounds depending on your body composition, this is a base guide you can increase a little the portions if you are taller than 5.5 feet.

 

This is not to be done more than 2 weeks, bare in mind that you should go back to introduce more carbs and fats into your diet slowly to avoid a yoyo effect.

 

INTERMITENT FASTING

I wanted to share with you a little bit of my experience on the famous and controversial intermittent fasting.

There are several ways on doing this, but I am doing the 16/8 version of it, meaning you eat in a 8 hour window and then fast for 16 hours.

I am having my last meal at around 7 pm and them eating again next day by 11  Am , or if my last meal is at 9 pm then I know I have to break the fast at 1 pm

I am drinking the cleanse (without cucumber etc) just the water/apple cider and cayenne/turmeric/ginger) 1 thing In the AM and before bed as well.

 

I am keeping the meals I am eating in the 8 hour window in low carb mode, like a semi keto diet, I am loving the results so far, I am down a couple of pounds ( not trying to loose weight) I just trying to give my digestive system a break of eating TOO much protein all the time.

 

I feel very energized, clear minded and my anxiety has gotten better!  not sure if this is the cause, but I feel good!

I like to try different things all the time, I am curious and always like to try this and that, each body and person is different, so this might not work for you.

I invite you to do a little more research about it and try it if you will.

 

I am going to do it for 1 month and then share the whole experience,  just 1-week in….

 

Love you babes!! Feel free to share what you do and what works for you!! 😊
