Fast Shot: Adding Time to Your Fasting Window Strategically and Painlessly
In this Fast Shot episode, Donna Reish, blogger, author of 100+ curriculum books, and Intermittent Fasting teacher, explains to listeners how to go about adding a fasting hour (or hours) to your fasting window. She starts by giving some ideas for when someone might want to add fasting hour/hours, including preparing for a special occasion, when someone is plateaued for a while, working on getting rid of the last ten to twenty pounds, and more. She then recommends when someone might NOT want to add more fasting time. Donna then looks at a couple of ways to add an hour and advises people to choose their plan ahead of time–another hour daily, extending their daily average via an app, adding an hour on weekends, etc. Finally, she gives tips and tricks for making it through another hour of fasting, including how to trick ghrelin, how to avoid dehydration and mineral imbalances, and more.
