This is Like Internal Liposuction
Your body is all too willing to burn fat-but you’ve got to give it the message to do so.
In Feast 2 Fast we do this in two ways:
#1. Keep carbs low enough on most days so that we’re not overproducing insulin (the fat storage hormone). When insulin is present, you are storing fat not burning it.
#2. Fast for 12-16 hours between dinner and breakfast to allow the body to burn stored fat and increase detoxification.
These two things will send the signal to your body to use (burn!) fat for fuel. It’s like internal liposuction for your body.
Historically we did not have ALL foods available ALL the time and so our ancestors naturally practiced these methods. But there were definitely times of feasting to balance this out. That’s the beauty of this historical rhythm. Sometimes we Feast and sometimes we Fast.
Applying this balance is what creates a sustainable lifestyle of eating (as opposed to a diet). It’s easy to hit a wall with a diet because there’s no wiggle room! By incorporating Feast Days we make room for wine with girlfriends and cookies with the kiddos and chips and queso at the Mexican restaurant.
And we do it without guilt or shame...because life is too short to overthink food. There are so many more important things to think about...like all of the blessings God has given you!!
Your body is an amazing creation that knows exactly how to run efficiently when given the resources and tools that it needs. If you are at all interested in joining Feast 2 Fast where we put this all together in a loving and supportive Christian group - click here to learn more!
