Incorporating Intermittent Fasting (IF) into your ShiftSetGo program has never been easier!
Intermittent fasting can jumpstart a number of different biological responses in the body while having a positive influence on hormone levels, your immune system and microbiome, and even gene expression. Fasting may also help increase detoxifying enzymes.
Your fasting schedule is whatever works best for you, as long as you consume all your Stage 1 daily requirements every 24 hours.
A good option to start with is the 14:10 intermittent fasting plan. This includes 14 hours of fasting, followed by a 10-hour eating window. For example, you could eat all your Stage 1 daily requirements between 9 AM and 7 PM. You would then fast from 7 PM to 9 AM the next morning, for a total of 14 hours.
Once you feel confident with the 14:10 approach, you can gradually move toward a 16:8 plan—fasting for 16 hours, followed by an 8-hour eating window. There are many ways to make this shift happen, including eating breakfast later or dinner earlier. Talk to your coach about which fasting options will work best for you.
Never go more than 24 hours without eating. A 24-hour fast is not part of the Shift FAST program. You can add it to your maintenance program if you desire.
