Intermitting Fasting FAQs: Everything you need to know about Intermittent Fasting for Fitness and Weight Loss Success

One of the absolute best plans I've seen for helping people to transform their bodies is through Intermittent Fasting.

Quickly gaining in popularity in the wellness community and industry, more and more people are turning towards various intermittent fasting schedules to help jumpstart their results in either weight loss, fitness or both.  

There are many reasons for this and one of the biggest being that it aids in your bodies' ability to resculpt and shape more effectively.

So, how does this work, exactly and why we calling it Our secret weapon for staying HOT for the Holidays?


First, watch our recent FacebookLIVE video about our solution for staying HOT for the Holidays: Intermittent Fasting and Nutritional Cleansing and covering some of the top FAQs about Intermittent Fasting and Nutritional Cleansing:

Q:  What is Intermittent Fasting and How does it work?



Q: WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL CLEANSING AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

NUTRITIONAL CLEANSING IS ALL ABOUT FLOODING YOUR BODY WITH THE NUTRITION IT NEEDS TO BE HEALTHY WHILE ALLOWING IT TO RELEASE THE UNWANTED TOXINS AND THE FAT CELLS THAT ARE SURROUNDING THEM-
OUR BODIES HAVE A DEFENSE MECHANISM WHERE IT PUTS FAT CELLS AROUND TOXINS IN ORDER TO PROTECT OUR VITAL ORGANS FROM BEING POISONED SO UNTIL YOU ADDRESS THE ISSUE OF TOXICITY IN THE BODY YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO EFFECTIVELY SHED THE FAT.



Q: Why Intermittent Fasting/Nutritional Cleansing?

What makes it so unique and why do you think people are having such incredible results here that are so long lasting compared to regular diets that tend to result in yo-yo, rebound weight gain??


Q: Is this a POOPY CLEANSE?


Will I be living on the toilet??
This is a funny but common question we get often because usually when a person hears the word 'cleanse' they imagine a colon cleanse... which DOES make you have to live on the toilet for the day! Yikes!!



But the good news is that this is a Gentle Cellular cleanse not a colon or liver cleanse.  You won't be living on the toilet and you can do this anywhere! Phew! ;)




Q: What do we do with Nutritional Cleansing and Intermittent Fasting?



Shake Days and Cleanse days

Shake days-
shake, snack, shake, snack, healthy dinner  lots of water!

Cleanse days
cleanse for life, isasnacks, isadelights

Are you Toxic? How do you know if you need to cleanse and what does a typical cleanse day look like?  Watch our video here to learn more...




Q:  How do you like THE ISALEAN shakes?  
People always want to know- do they taste good?
what makes the IsaLean shakes different from a regular protein shake that you can get from walmart or a health food store?

Q:  But I like to eat FOOD!!! ;)  or but I EAT CLEAN! why do I need this?

Our food is depleted- chemicals, pesticides, GMO's- the nutrition in food today isn't the same as it was years ago!

We love to eat too- we have so many awesome recipes to help you stay on track and the shakes are delicious and never get boring- we have so many flavor varieties, a new seasonal shake flavor every couple months or so  and tons of ways to use the shakes for different smoothies, protein cookies, protein donuts etc

Q:  How does not eating for 24-48 hrs help build lean muscle mass??

Intermittent fasting and nutritional cleansing puts your body in an Anabolic state that boosts human growth hormone and your bodies ability to build lean muscle.

Q- I’m thinking of waiting until After the holidays to get started...is that a good idea?
Consider this, the average person gains 7-15lbs during the holidays so if you wait you won’t be just worrying about where you’re at now but that extra weight you may put on
And why put off feeling better Now because of a couple holidays and meals...possibly just two meals...
What I love is that when I know I’ve been 100% on point for my first two meals I have more freedom and my metabolism is more efficient so I don’t need to worry about 1 meal derailing me!


Next, read more here about Intermittent Fasting- Beyond Dieting from the IsagenixHealth.net website:


"What if we could move beyond a “one-size-fits-all” way of losing weight? Scientists are finally accepting that intermittent fasting, as performed on Isagenix-style Cleanse Days, can be an effective dietary method for weight loss and weight management.
It’s easy to dismiss new diet trends that come and go. Fad diets rarely have staying power once subjected to rigorous randomized controlled studies, and they rarely achieve scientific validation with clinically meaningful results.
Among the medical community, the term clinically meaningful as it refers to weight loss is a 5-10 percent reduction in bodyweight (1, 2). To achieve this clinically meaningful weight loss, the traditional recommendation is continuous energy restriction of about 600 calories per day (3). This is as part of a multicomponent weight management program that includes diet and physical activity.
It’s also well known that most people who lose 5-10 percent of the bodyweight end up gaining it back (4). The majority end up regaining the weight they’ve lost within months. For this reason, scientists have often questioned the effectiveness of continuous calorie restriction through regular dieting.
A newly published systemic review and meta-analysis reported that short-term periods of intermittent fasting on a weekly basis are just as effective for clinically meaningful weight loss as compared to standard diet restriction (1)...." Click here to Continue reading the rest of the article...
