For some, the idea of fasting by eating only one or two meals a day still sounds like an extreme and overly restrictive dieting tactic. But many of us already feel like victims to our daily eating schedule: three meals a day, plus snacks. Eat every few hours, we are told by the experts. This fixed eating schedule has become the norm. But the truth is this is an artificially constructed schedule that does not reflect our bodies’ natural and most optimal eating schedule. In fact, eating three meals a day causes metabolic inflexibility, which can easily lead to inflammation, weight gain, and disease. For millions of years, our bodies have actually functioned best by fasting. With his four-week fasting flexibility plan, Dr. Cole will help you reset your body, recharge your metabolism, renew your cells, and rebalance your hormones. He’ll illustrate the most effective ways to fast and eat to amplify the health benefits of intermittent fasting, balancing rest and repair with clean, nutrient dense, delicious foods. Along with 60-70 recipes, he also includes a maintenance plan, so you can adapt fasting and feeding windows to work with your lifestyle.
