Hi, thanks for your request.
The principle of BodyFast is very simple - you can always skip meals and give your body a break. On the one hand, this results in numerous health effects and, on the other hand, weight loss, which also depends on the frequency and duration of the fasting periods.
In the eating periods you can basically eat what you want. This is also the advantage BodyFast has over other weight loss methods. You do not have to count calories or change your meals.
Instead of counting calories or following specific diet plans, we recommend a simple rule of thumb that will help you develop a natural sense of moderate and healthy portion sizes:
+ One full-size portion of protein-containing foods (meat, eggs, dairy, etc.) and a fist-sized portion of vegetables at each meal.
+ For most meals, a hollow hand full of carbohydrates (pasta, rice, fruits) and a thumb-sized portion of fatty foods like butter, oil, and nuts.
These figures apply to women, men double the amount.
Of course, intermittent fasting can also be combined with other diets such as low-carb or ketogenic, ie carbohydrate-limited diet.
Shift working and fasting can sometimes be complicated. We have the feedback of many users who manage to integrate the BodyFast plans into their work times. Try to adjust the fasting plan by moving the individual times of each day according to your work schedule. This is possible during a fasting week or before you start a new week.
If you are a Coach subscriber, each week you can choose a "Joker Day" during which you can take a break from fasting. This also makes it easier sometimes.
I hope that helps!
Kind regards, your BodyFast-Team
