Practical Fasting Tips

Arrange your fasting schedule so that it fits in with your lifestyle.

Top Intermittent Fasting tips Drink water: Start each morning with a full glass of water. It’s vital to drink enough fluid on a fast.

Have loads of distilled water ready.

At Fasting Boost we recommend at least eight 8-ounce glasses (2 liters) of water every day — to stay hydrated.

Also, listen to your body and drink when thirsty.

Give yourself time: It takes time for your body to get used to fasting. The first few times you fast may be difficult, so be prepared. Don’t be discouraged. It will get easier.

Drink Tea or coffee: Especially in the first couple of weeks of intermittent fasting, it can be very normal to experience hunger pangs. Coffee is a mild appetite suppressant. Green tea, black tea, and bone broth may also help.

Not only can tea make your fasting experience more enjoyable and manageable, but it will actually make your intermittent fasting more effective. Green tea in particular has been proven time and time again to be a successful aid in reducing body fat.

Ride the waves: Hunger comes in waves; it is temporary and not continuous. It will subside!

When it hits, slowly drink a glass of water or a hot cup of coffee. Often by the time you’ve finished, your hunger will have passed.

Follow a nutritious diet on non-fast days: Intermittent fasting is not an excuse to eat whatever you like. During non-fasting days, stick to a nutritious diet low in sugars and refined carbohydrates. Don’t use intermittent fasting as an excuse to eat tons of junk food when you are eating—continue to eat responsibly, sticking with whole natural foods with high nutrient density and avoiding processed foods.

Stay busy: Get busy away from food. It’ll keep your mind off food. It often helps to choose a busy day at work for a fast day. Get moving, write down a list of tasks and start checking them off.

Don’t’ binge: After fasting, pretend it never happened. Continue eating normally and get back into your regular eating routine, as if you had never fasted. Healthy eating is all about balanced and moderate eating, consisting of feeding and fasting.

Do not try to force fasting: There will be times during which it’s impossible to fast: vacation, holidays, weddings. Adjust your fasting schedule to what makes sense for your lifestyle.

Exercise: It is perfectly fine to exercise while fasting intermittently, either cardio or lifting weights. Keeping busy with activities such as walking, may make your fast days easier.

Plan Your Fasting Break Meals In Advance: If you are eating away from home, take food with you or know where you can buy healthy food from.

Planning your meals ahead of time saves time, money and encourages healthier eating, helping you add more nutrients to your diet and make right food choices.

Avoid sugar: Drinks and foods that contain sugar are a major source of empty energy. They contain a lot of energy that your body may not need, and it doesn't contain any vitamins or minerals.

Of course, consuming too much sugar increases heart disease risk factors such as obesity, inflammation and high blood pressure.

It’s remarkable what an amazing job the body can do at healing itself, if you just get out of the way! Intermittent Fasting is the fastest way to get in shape. Enjoy!
