Key Takeaways

    • Are you sleeping enough? How are your stress levels? Do you have a tendency to binge?
  • A good eating time frame to start with is 10hours of eating with 14hours of fasting a day. Optimal would be 8hours of eating with 16 of fasting
  • Onnit academy shares a great guide for beginners on intermittent fasting here
  • Strategically eating higher fat meals or a total ketosis approach could amplify the effects of intermittent fasting by priming the body to burn fat for fuel while in a fasting state
  • The human species has evolved through famine and fasting is something that our bodies can absolutely handle
  • Fasting can be used as a daily approach or added as a once or twice occurrence for longer fasting periods within one week
