Do you feel like you’re fighting to get fit or fighting to stay fit?
If so, you are not alone. Believe it or not, almost 48% of black adults are overweight and battling with there fitness. White adults are closely following at 37% obesity. Hispanics are around 43%, and Asians are trailing at 12% obesity.
When I first started my fitness journey, I wanted to know if I was alone in my walk of obesity. So I searched for answers from my doctor and close friends of mine that are OBGYN’s. They told me that approximately 1 out of 8 women is battling obesity.
Believe it or not, the numbers made me feel better yet scared me at the same time. I instantly wanted to know how long it took the hopefuls to lose weight and were they able to keep it off for the long haul.
The need for me to be optimistic was urgent!
Because After having three kids my entire body was fluffy.
I was so frustrated that I couldn’t jump rope or climb the monkey bars with my kids like I used to. All I wanted was to feel like myself again.
Now let me fast forward to today, February 17, 2020.
It has now been a month since I began intermittent fasting and I’m encouraging everyone I meet to jump on the train. It is a no brainer, and the best part is, you don’t have to count calories or points. Of course like all healthy life changes, you will need to lower your sugar intake.
The schedule that I follow is simple and straight forward. I’m on the 16:8 plan. Which means you fast for 16 hours and eat during your 8-hour window.
Currently, I have my first meal at 11:30 am and my last meal is at 7-7:30. No excuses and I make sure that I graze during my 8-hour window. I keep carrots, cucumbers, nuts, celery, fruit, salad, tea and a variety of protein flavors in my house at all times.
My goal is to teach you how to stay fit without the fight.
I believe in you!
