Taking the Power Back

success for woman weight lifterElsewhere on this blog we have touched on the idea of Intermittent Fasting (IF) and here. Possibly one of the most beneficial aspects of IF is that it dramatically alters your perspective on eating. Try it and see. After 24 hours you will find that your food choices are good. You have gained perspective and you will not want to put junk food into your body which will feel rested and well.

Further, by abstaining from food for a short period you are putting your mind in control of your behaviour. Taking back a bit of control over your life is an empowering feeling and will lead to improved self-image and confidence. What felt dense and challenging begins to feel extraordinarily clear.

And for those worried about their body failing without food across a mini-fast? Please rest assured that our bodies are genetically adapted through a process known as ketosis to last more than ten hours without food.

Always remember to keep hydrated during a fast. You can drink tea or coffee as well as water. Keep busy and try exercising before breaking your fast – you will be surprised by the results!

About Paleo Works

Paleo Works Have you ever wondered how you arrived at “being overweight” and thought how difficult it is to get rid of and keep off those excess pounds? Hi, I’m Katie and together with Mike my husband, we are Paleo Works. As a busy working mum of four, I often watched others embark on weight loss progammes only to return to their start weight (and then some) shortly after reaching their target. Why was this happening? Conventional dietary wisdom would have us believe that it’s YOU who has failed. But Mike and I thought different. We felt that there had to be something wrong with that conventional dietary wisdom after all we can’t all be hopeless? So we studied intensely, sought out advice and read avidly. We questioned robustly and talked with many on various 'dieting' regimes. What we found was radical, our story has to be told, our knowledge has to be shared. So If you are ready to stop blaming your self for being overweight and ready to change your approach to weight loss then contact us and let’s get started!
