Let me say this loud and clear, women should be fasting. There are a lot of myths and misunderstandings about how fasting affects women, so I wanted to dive in today into the science and research around women and fasting.  In a meta analysis of over 44 peer reviewed studies done on fasting and women, the study concluded that “fasting can be prescribed as a safe medical intervention, as well as a lifestyle regimen which can improve women’s health in many folds.” Read that again! Specifically, they found 5 different categories where fasting helps women. Cancer This meta analysis looked at 3 different types of fasts and how they affected cancer. The first was the fast mimicking diet, made

There are many lifestyle changes we can make in our every day lives to help autoimmune conditions. First, ask yourself if you believed your autoimmune condition to “run in your family”? Think again. Science is now showing us that that genetic predisposition accounts for only 30% of all autoimmune conditions, while the remaining 70% are a result of environmental factors.  Keep an eye out for these environmental factors: Avoid exposure to toxic chemicals like mercury and lead Mold is common in many of our households, schools, and workplaces. The products you use for your daily skincare and makeup routine might contain parabens. Be careful when you shop at the grocery store to avoid foods with pesticides.

I get it, instilling healthy eating habits in kids can be challenging. Kids’ taste buds are programmed from a young age by the food industry to crave chemical, preservative and additive-filled foods while we’re over here trying to get them to like broccoli!  But childhood is the prime time for laying the foundations of positive and life-long healthy eating habits. We know that our immune system relies on strong metabolic health, which is determined by the foods we eat! Teaching healthy eating habits to your kids at a young age is essential for their health into adulthood. During my Fast Training week I focused on sugar-free eating for the whole family, kids included! It has come to our attention

A common question I get when people begin fasting is, "when should I break my fast?".   Fasting is an incredible tool used for weight loss, bringing down inflammation, improving mood, metabolism, and so on. However, there are certain times during a fast that we need to pay close attention to what our body is telling us in order to fast safely. Oftentimes, we find that people who have other underlying health conditions, such as diabetes, will experience certain symptoms when making the jump from daily intermittent fasting to longer fasts, like 24+ hour fasts.  My goal is to help you achieve optimal results from fasting, in a safe manner. The most important thing to know when fasting is, when

Questioning how to start fasting? You're in the right place to start!   Often the first step to fasting is changing your understanding of what is “normal” and creating a new belief system around eating and health. You see, there are a lot of misconceptions around what kinds of foods we should be eating and when we should be eating them. For example, we’ve been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and that cereals, bagels, breads and sugary drinks are an acceptable way to start the day. We’ve been told that eating 3 meals (plus lots of snacks) is normal, and that an afternoon slump in energy should be alleviated by caffeine and energy
