I was always taught that breakfast was the most important meal of the day.
That I needed to eat in the morning to get my metabolism going strong.
That people who skip breakfast are more likely to be overweight.
So I forced myself to eat breakfast.
Even though I didn’t want to and wasn’t always hungry.
And I was still overweight.
And then I learned about the benefits of intermittent fasting.
“Isn’t fasting just starving yourself?” you may ask.
Starving is involuntary-not deliberate or controlled.
Fasting is voluntary abstinence from food for a purpose.
Fasting is already a part of our everyday life-the term “breakfast” refers to the meal that breaks our nightly fast.
It has amazing healing benefits.
Fasting is a universal human response to many illnesses.
Think of the last time you were sick-probably the last thing you wanted to do was eat.
Fasting creates an opportunity for your body to reset and utilize its resources to do what it is meant to do…
Burn fat for fuel.
I like to call it “Dining In.”
So instead of breakfast off a plate, I let my body eat some breakfast from my hips, thighs, and tummy.
Sometimes listening to your body, is much smarter than listening to what everyone tells you to do.
Take care of YOURSELF.
It all begins with a thought!
