My Motivation Stems from the Incredible Transformation I've Experienced!

Tell us a little about yourself and why you decided to make a change to your health?

My name is Leticia, a 45-year-old mother of three from Australia. Like many others, I found myself caught up in the whirlwind of daily life, juggling the responsibilities of work and family. However, I reached a point where I realized that I needed to prioritize my health. After struggling with weight gain and feeling constantly fatigued, I knew it was time for a change. That's when I decided to explore intermittent fasting with the help of Intermittent Fasting Beginners.


What goals did you achieve since adding fasting into your life?

Since integrating fasting into my lifestyle, I've achieved remarkable results. Over the course of 12 weeks, I managed to shed an incredible 25 kilograms. Beyond the numbers on the scale, I also noticed a significant improvement in my overall health markers, such as increased energy levels and improved mental clarity.


When it comes to fasting, what are your top 3 recommendations?

My top three recommendations for anyone considering fasting would be:


Start gradually and listen to your body's signals.


Stay hydrated and prioritize nutrient-dense foods during eating windows.


Seek support and guidance, whether it's through online communities or expert resources like Intermittent Fasting Beginners.


What is your favorite healthy food to eat? What is the recipe?

  1. One of my favorite healthy meals is a colorful quinoa salad packed with fresh vegetables, chickpeas, and a zesty lemon vinaigrette. Here's the recipe:

Cooked quinoa

Diced cucumber, bell peppers, and cherry tomatoes

Drained and rinsed chickpeas

Chopped fresh parsley

For the dressing: whisk together olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.



How did you manage to integrate this healthy lifestyle into your life?

Integrating intermittent fasting into my life required a combination of commitment and flexibility. I started by gradually adjusting my eating windows and experimenting with different fasting protocols until I found what worked best for me. Planning and preparation also played a crucial role, ensuring that I always had nutritious options available during my eating periods.


What motivates you to continue with this lifestyle?

My primary motivation stems from the incredible transformation I've experienced, both physically and mentally. Seeing tangible results and feeling a newfound sense of vitality keeps me motivated to prioritize my health every day.


Additionally, the support and encouragement from the Intermittent Fasting Beginners community serve as constant sources of inspiration.


What is your best piece of advice for those just starting to fast?

For those embarking on their fasting journey, my best advice would be to be patient and compassionate with yourself. Rome wasn't built in a day, and sustainable change takes time. Start with small, manageable steps, and don't hesitate to reach out for support when needed. Remember, every step forward, no matter how small, is a step in the right direction.


Anything else you would like to share?

I want to emphasize that embarking on a journey toward better health is not a solo endeavor. Surround yourself with a supportive community, like Intermittent Fasting Beginners, who can provide guidance, encouragement, and accountability along the way. With dedication and the right resources, achieving your health goals is within reach.
