healthy eating with Faster Way to Fat Loss

  1. Joan MacLeod says:

    Definitely not healthy to skip breakfast. Your body needs fuel to start your day. Every registered dietitian would not agree with this concept !

    • Beth Djalali says:

      hi joan! technically, i am eating breakfast. i’m just breaking my fast later in the day. but, yes, the old thinking was that your body needed fuel right away to start the day. now the data is supporting intermittent fasting helps lower our insulin levels which is key to burning fat. but any eight-hour feeding window works. if you want to break your fast at 7am then the last meal needs to be consumed by 3pm. there’s lots of flexibility with this program.

  2. Anne says:

    There’s a lot of research behind intermittent fasting. Maintaining a fasting- eating cycle of 16-8 is very healthy.

  3. Cynthia G Smith says:

    Dumb question, but is the quinoa in the salmon recipe cooked or dry?

    • Beth Djalali says:

      there are no dumb questions. it is one cup cooked quinoa. i typically use Trader Joe’s frozen quinoa that i heat up in the microwave. i love shortcuts when it comes to cooking. and Trader Joe’s has so many healthy options.

    You look great, Beth, and your fitness journey has been very informative and inspiring. Thank you for sharing it!!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      thanks so much for stopping by mary! i think it’s so important to have the right tools and information at your disposal. and there’s been so much misinformation when it comes to aging. i’m happy to share what i’ve learned
      along the way.

  5. Cathy says:

    I’m curious, with not eating until noon, do you work out in the morning? I workout at Orange Theory Fitness (I think you’ve been there too) and find if I haven’t eaten within about 3 hours of working out, I feel dizzy during the workout.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      the important thing to remember when it comes to intermittent fasting is that it is an eight hour window where you consume your meals. so if you want to eat an hour or two after working out (or before) then just start the clock then. if it’s 10am then your last meal needs to be consumed by 6pm. i typically workout around 10 or 11am take a shower then have my first meal around 12pm. but i’ve never eat a meal before working out. my preference has always been to work out on an empty stomach. but it’s really easy to tailor the program to what works for you. progress not perfection.

  6. Susan says:

    Beth did you lose weight on this program or do you just feel healthier?

    • Beth Djalali says:

      both. i’ve lost about 15 pounds which have been converted from fat to muscle. and i feel so much better because physically because i’m making better choices when it comes to nutrition.

  7. Suzanne Smith says:

    You’re doing great, Beth! I have learned over the past few years that I really need far less food than I used to think I need, too. If you’re eating healthy, you’re eating lots of fiber and protein and things that fill you up well. I am a believer in intermittent fasting, and I’ve found it helps minimize my RA pain levels, too. I thought at first I was imagining it and have since read that that’s accurate. (I’m not promoting giving up eating, just fasting intermittently!)

  8. Kathy Hammock says:

    You’re doing great, Beth! I’m an IF’er, too. For those who want to know more about intermittent fasting, reversing Type 2 Diabetes, overcoming long-term obesity, autophagy, etc., I recommend these amazing books:
    Delay, Don’t Deny by Gin Stephens (a Georgia author!)
    The Obesity Code, The Diabetes Code, and The Complete Guide to Fasting by Dr. Jason Fung (also check out all his You Tube videos)
    You are 100% correct! The science supports the health benefits of intermittent fasting. And it’s free! It is a paradigm shift for the medical and nutrition communities, but many are getting up to speed. Keep sharing this great information. Happy fasting!
