My 14-Minute-Fix for Productivity and Clarity (Fast Shot)

Donna Reish, weight loss coach, Intermittent Fasting teacher, blogger, and author of over 100 language arts/writing curriculum books for students from K-12th grades, introduces her 14-Minute-Fix for Productivity and Clarity in this Fast Shot video. First, she gives an overview of the process—that you can either do 14 minutes in the morning, 14 minutes in the evening, or both. If you do AM and PM, it is literally spending 2% of your day planning in order to make the other 98% of your day the most effective and productive as it can be!

Then Donna describes her PM 14 Minute Fix (and how a good tomorrow starts tonight!): First, she checks the calendar for tomorrow’s activities. Then she moves into her First Five and Fast Five (at least three of each if her calendar and dailies allow enough time). Then she charges everything. Next, she evaluates today’s food. And then she leaves “bread crumbs” for tomorrow’s early morning activities, including journal station and workout clothes.

6 Reasons You Might Need 2MAD (and 6 Reasons You Might Not) (Fast Shot Video!)

In this Fast Shot Video, Donna Reish, author of over 100 curriculum books for students, blogger, healthy seeker, and IF teacher, helps fasters determine whether one meal a day (with a snack or two—OMAD) or two meals a day (2MAD) is right for you. People automatically think they need OMAD because they’re afraid they won’t lose weight with 2MAD, but if your snacks are heavy, calorie-dense, not real, and not filling, the snacks might be the problem.

She addresses six times that you might want to go with 2MAD: 1) when your snacks are unhealthy; 2) when your snacks cause you to be hungry again too quickly; 3) when your snacks cause you to graze; 4) when you aren’t getting all of your nutrients in; 5) when your snacks cause huge dopamine spikes and increase cravings.


Fast Shot: Why All or Nothing Has Never Worked for Me

So I had that feeling recently…

That feeling that I have tried so hard to overcome for three decades..

But I overcame it!

If you are one of those “all or nothing” gals—or “make too many changes at one time” gals—you are not alone!

So I documented the feeling—and everything I thought about to overcome this week’s Fast Shot video.

As you’ll see in the video—I did it without my hair done and make up on…and with no outline! Lol! (Something really is changing in me!)


Fast Shot: Eating More Real Foods

Today I have a Fast Shot that I created in my free private FB group (join here!) when I began the April “More Real Food” Challenge two weeks ago.

It isn’t quite as “fast” as my fast shots are supposed to be. (Shock, shock!)

And it has info in how to join the challenge (you can join anytime and watch all 30 of the videos in the group at your own pace).

But it also has some good info about considering which foods in your life are “real” (and thus, less seductive, craving-causing, calorie dense, appetite-increasing, etc.)….

And which foods are less than real (and thus, more seductive, craving-causing, calorie dense, and appetite-increasing)….


Fast Shot: Shorter and Longer Fasts—Does It Matter?

In this fast shot, Donna Reish, blogger, author of 100 curriculum books, Intermittent Fasting teacher, and seeker of health, teaches the benefits and downfalls of fasting for shorter periods times vs longer periods of times each day. She begins with understanding the four ways we lose inches and fat with fasting and then discusses other health benefits that can be affected by fast length. She then describes the process of shorter fasting, that is 16-18 hour fasting hours. She discussed how this allows for two meals or more, how some people have self control problems with that long of an eating window/that many eating opportunites, how effective this approach is for clean/whole foods eaters, the this fasting length’s potential effect on Appetite Control. Then Donna discussed the longer fasting times,, such as 19 to 23 hours, including the potential benefit of one meal a day, the length of time it may take to burn through stored glycogen, and how the body gets used to longer fasts/trains grehlin. She brings it all together in summary between the two time conundrums.


Fast Shot: Should You Exercise Fasted?

In this Fast Shot, Donna Reish, blogger, health seeker, Intermittent Fasting teacher, and author of over 100 curriculum books for students in preschool through grade twelve, teaches about exercising fasted. She begins by explaining the three main types of exercise and what each one does in terms of calorie burning vs toning, etc.—cardio, strength training, and HIIT. She then describes the three ways to get into ketosis—keto diet, fasting, and exercise ketosis. Then she tells when she likes to do strength training and rowing and why, including how working out during the fast gets you into fat burning sooner (and sometimes very quickly depending on the intensity of the workout and what you ate the night before). Finally, she gives some tips for adding exercise to your Intermittent Fasting routine.
