Intermittent fasting has been a huge part of my lifestyle for the previous 5+ years. It's no longer a diet trend I once saw it as, but rather a way to help me live healthier, for longer.
Following a lifestyle our ancestors led all those years ago truly helps me to connect to the way life was really intended for us humans, and it's one I continue to feel passionate about.
What's important is that we stop viewing intermittent fasting as a diet trend, or as a way to eat more food, and start viewing it a lifestyle that was intended for us. While fasting can help us reach certain health goals, it's so much more than just a 'diet'.
One of the main benefits of intermittent fasting - and the reason why I love it so much - is that your body begins to burn stored body fat, rather than depending on sugar for energy. Once you've tapped into those reserves, your energy levels should increase, your hunger levels should resume to normal and most importantly, you'll start to maintain a healthy weight. It's all about letting our bodies function the way they were designed to.
Saying that however, I understand how tricky it can be adapting to a new lifestyle change like intermittent fasting. And while I've been fasting for over 5+ years, I still rely on one special supplement almost daily.
While fasting is great for letting our bodies enter self-repair mode during the periods when we're not eating and to help us maintain a healthy weight, it can be tricky to ensure we're hitting our fibre and nutrient intake - which is where SlimShotz can help.
SlimShotz is one of the first supplements I started working on when Primal Living was born. While there are a huge range of "slimming" products on the market (or weight management as I prefer to call it), many of them contain artificial sweeteners, sugars and other man made ingredients, which will not help you maintain a healthy weight.
I wanted to create a product that was 100% natural, packed with nutrition, and, above all, worked. SlimShotz works in a few different ways and while it can help support any weight goal you have, it's also amazing for intermittent fasting too (which a lot of people may not realise).
You see, SlimShotz contains a natural ingredient called Glucomannan, which is extracted from the root of the Konjac plant. It works by expanding up to 50x in the stomach, which sets off your stretch receptors and sends the hormone 'leptin' up to the brain, which tells us when we're full. You could also call it a 'shot of fibre' as that's what it essentially is!
So on the days when I'm fasting for a long amount of time, I like to take a shot of SlimShotz to 1) help with any temptations to break my fast and 2) to ensure I'm meeting my daily fibre intake which will help leave me feeling full and satisfied and aid good gut health.
As much as I intend to stick to a fasting lifestyle, there are moments of course (especially during holiday season), where I let loose a little and truly enjoy my Primal food. And when that does happen, and I put on a little too much weight that I intend to (I only have to look at a carb to put on weight!), I know SlimShotz will be the supplement to help me take control.
SlimShotz is equally effective for both women and men alike, and of course can be used alongside a healthy Primal diet too.
And to show you how much I believe in this this product... If you don't feel any difference within 7 days, then simply get in touch with the team and we'll refund you your money back.
So there we have it. The number 1 supplement I recommend for fasting and healthy weight management. To find out more about SlimShotz, please click here.
