Fasting for a Healthier Life

How many people do you know who have gone on a diet, lost weight, got excited (a little cocky, perhaps), and returned to all their old habits? Then, BAM! They returned to their old body! Next, you hear them complain that the diet didn’t work. But was it the diet that failed, or did they forget that managing their health was up to them?

We all need to be honest and acknowledge there is no magic, no pills, no exercises or equipment alone that will keep your weight in healthy ranges. It’s all up to you.

Diets have a beginning and an end, but your health does not! People start with a sense of urgency & determination when deciding to lose weight, but that can fade as they get comfortable with their weight loss success. The only way to make weight loss permanent is to make living a  healthy lifestyle a priority.

Losing the weight is not the challenge, keeping it off is. There is no one size fits all plan to keep it off. So once you have found the weight range you are comfortable with you have to discover, learn, and understand how to keep your body stabilized & mind engaged for optimal health. Moxifit coaches are trained to help you find what works for you from day one of your weight loss all the way through maintenance.

One great way to work healthy living into your long-term lifestyle is to incorporate intermittent fasting. Many of us fast each day without even realizing it, and there are tremendous benefits like burning belly fat, lowering your risk for Type 2 Diabetes, and improving heart health.

So, how do you work intermittent fasting into your life? Start small and work your way up to the more aggressive methods. Here are a few well-known variations you can try:

Many of us believe that losing weight is only about the food we eat or don’t eat. However, food is just one small part of a much bigger picture. To get your body and mind into peak health, you also need to consider WHEN, WHY, and HOW MUCH you’re eating every day. Stay mindful of your thoughts, choices, and goals and you will surely find long-term success.
