Intermittent fasting for women – Episode 55 with Laurie Lewis

Summary

Going without food for longer may seem a difficult step to take to manage your body weight or your health! Especially if you love good food, as we do on the Fit to Succeed show! In this episode, we investigate the popular trend of intermittent fasting for women with a leading health coach, Laurie Lewis. We discuss how to apply a fasting approach, in easy-to-take, comfortable steps and benefit from Laurie’s years of experience and her supportive coaching methods and tips.

Guest biography

For Intermittent Fasting Coach and Author, Laurie Lewis, menopause dealt a crushing blow – brain fog, lack of balance, memory loss, and the rapid gain of 50 pounds of stubborn body fat. She tried everything she knew to feel better, and the methods that worked in the past made no difference. After four years of struggle, Laurie stumbled upon Intermittent Fasting and started fasting that very same day. The menopausal fog lifted in less than one week, she had more energy and felt more “like herself.” She lost 51 pounds in 15 months and has kept it off for years! Time has passed and Laurie has turned her personal success into a thriving Intermittent Fasting coaching business. As a certified health coach, from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Laurie guides her clients to eat great food, take a pause, and enjoy life feeling vibrantly well.

We have addressed the science of time-restricted feeding and intermittent fasting previously in episode 43 with Danny Lennon. We enjoy getting into the scientific details, but it is also necessary to step back and consider the more practical application and impact of diet and behaviour change. In this interview, the intention was to provide the perspective of the nutrition/health coach and how to apply intermittent fasting in real-world circumstances.
