'Intuitive Fasting is Will's clear four-week program designed to set you up to feel your best for all the other weeks to come... It's full of what he's learned about reducing inflammation, restoring balance, recharging metabolism, and resetting gut health.' GWYNETH PALTROW, founder and CEO of goop
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 of our daily eating schedule: three meals a day, plus snacks. The truth is: this is an artificially constructed schedule that does not reflect our bodies' natural cycles. In fact, eating three meals every day can cause metabolic inflexibility, which can easily lead to inflammation, weight gain, fatigue and chronic health problems. For millions of years, our bodies have functioned best with periodic times of fasting.
With his fresh approach to fasting, New York Times bestselling author and functional medicine expert Dr Will Cole gives you the ability to take control of your hunger and make intermittent fasting intuitive. You'll get in touch with your instinctive eating patterns and become healthier and more mindful about how and when you eat. Intuitive Fasting will show you how to find metabolic flexibility - and once you've reached it, you can trust your body to function at optimal capacity, whether you've eaten six minutes or six hours ago.
During his 4-Week Flexible Fasting Plan, Dr Cole will guide you through varying intermittent fasting windows, with each week of the plan tailored to focus on a different aspect of your health. He demonstrates the most effective ways to fast and eat to amplify the health benefits of intermittent fasting, balancing rest and repair with nutrient dense, delicious foods. By the end of the four weeks, you will have all the tools necessary to:
- Reset your body
- Recharge your metabolism
- Renew your cells
- Rebalance your hormones
Along with more than 65 recipes, you'll find a maintenance plan, so you can adapt fasting and feeding windows to work sustainably with your lifestyle.
