How To Use Intermittent Fasting To Maximize Results With Keto-FX
There are multiple ways to maximize your results with Keto-FX. As we discussed in a previous write up you can use the Ketogenic meal plan to maximize your results. However that is not the only form of meal prepping that can take you to the next level. Intermittent Fasting is now one of the most popular ways to maximize your results with Keto-FX. So what is Intermittent Fasting? Its actually a conscious decision to skip certain meals on purpose. This is where you consume all of your meals during a certain window of time (example: 12pm-8pm) and then you choose to fast during the larger window of time. Lets think of it this way, Intermittent Fasting is not a diet but more of a eating pattern. Lets take a look at some different forms of intermittent fasting and then you can choose which one best fits your schedule and lifestyle so you can maximize results with Keto-FX.
16/8 Protocol (Most Popular)
Example: This is where we will fast for 16 hours and only eat within a specific 8-hour window. For example, only eating from noon-8 PM and being aware we are skipping breakfast. Some people only eat in a 6-hour window, or even a 4-hour window. This is “feasting” and “fasting” parts of your days and the most common form of Intermittent Fasting.
Two examples: The top means you are skipping breakfast, the bottom means you are skipping dinner each day:
There are many ways to adjust this pattern of eating to fit your life. Here are some layouts for you to try depending on your schedule.
Start Eating At 7am And Stop Eating At 3pm. (Fast For The Remainder Of The Day)
Start Eating At 11am And Stop Eating At 7pm. (Fast For The Remainder Of The Day)
Start Eating At 2pm And Stop Eating At 10pm. (Fast For The Remainder Of The Day)
Start Eating At 6pm And Stop Eating At 2am. (Fast For The Remainder Of The Day)
24 Hours Protocol (Popular But Recommended For Experts)
This is where we will skip 2 meals in 1 day and fast for 24 hours for the following period. For example we would begin with a normal 16/8 protocol where we feast for 8 hours and fast for the remaining periods but on 1 day out of the week instead of completing the fast period we would eat the first meal of our fasting period and then fast for 24 hours.
Another example could be, eating on a normal schedule and then not eating again until 8PM the following day. So you would eat your normal 3 meals per day, and then sometime during the week pick a day to skip breakfast and lunch the next day so that you can fast for the 24 hour period. If you can only do an 18 hour fast, or a 20 hour fast, or a 22 hour fast – that is perfectly fine. Take this process step by step and see how your body responds to different methods. This will help you achieve the best results as well as help you figure out what works best for your body type.
Two examples: Skipping breakfast and lunch one day of the week, and then another where you skip lunch and dinner one day, two days in a week.
Intermittent Fasting is a great new way to help improve weight loss as well as increase your metabolism speed. Add in Keto-FX to help with appetite suppression during your fasting periods and things will become even easier. Intermittent Fasting and Keto-FX are like a match made in Heaven…Just For You!
