Welcome back, Welcome back, Welcome back!
Our FREE 10 Day Meal Prep Challenge is off to an amazing start, keep that same energy sis!!
I’m here as you guide to help you get started on and complete your journey.
Before you start Day 2’s Assignment, make sure you have completed Day 1’s Diva Assignment (click here).
WELCOME TO DAY 2
Use Your Book (pages 13-20) to Decide Which Intermittent Fasting (IF) Technique works best for you!
Here’s a quick Summary of the Top 5 ways to do IF. Remember IF is only the timing in which you eat your meals. It is not a diet. It’s the timing of how you plan to eat your meals.
- 16/8 – involves daily fasts of 16 hours. Each day you restrict your eating window to 8 hours.
- 5:2 – Fast Diet involves 500-600 calories for 2 days out of the week and eating normally the other days
- Eat Stop Eat – involves 1 or 2 24-hour fasts per week.
- Alternate Day- fast every other day by not eating anything at all or only a few hundred calories on alternating days
- Spontaneous Meal Skipping– intuitively skipping meals when you’re not hungry or when you don’t have time to eat.
Intermittent Fasting is NOT required to gain great results from this challenge. IF should not be used if you suffer from eating disorders, and if waiting or delaying eating leads you to binge.
TODAY’S DIVA ASSIGNMENT
Diva Task #1:
Read pages 13-20 to decide which intermittent fasting method you plan to use (if any). Write your choice in your book on page 12, share your choice with me in the comments below. You can also use this video to help you decide:
Diva Task #2:
Use your meal planning template found on page 23 of the book, or use the one in your healthy habits planner on page 28. Not the meals (we are discussing that soon), but the times you plan to eat your meals based on chosen eating schedule. Take you time and think about this sis.
You can also use this video to help you get organized.
