Today we are going to take a look at a 15-day plan for intermittent fasting and protein cycling to reset your body. Find out what you can eat on low-protein days, where protein intake is limited to 25 grams only. However, before we go there let’s get our ideas straight.
Weight loss and autophagy
Have you ever heard about Autophagy? It is the critical driver of aging, as we can’t keep up with it. As a result of that comes we gain weight, experience problems with sleeping, general exhaustion, and less collagen production. Now the question is what do you do keep up with it to avoid these problems?
There are simple and easy solutions to speed it up, such as slightly changing the way you eat, you can change the way you exercise or the way you sleep, even your natural beauty routine. However, how do you make these changes? We are going to explain it to you today.
It all comes down to two big ideas, first is intermittent fasting and the second is protein cycling. So stay with us, we are going to walk you through each of these. Don’t feel intimidated; cause chances are you may have heard parts of this before.
You may have already heard a lot about intermittent fasting. You’re going to do it for three non-consecutive days out of the week. What that means is for 16 hours you will not eat on these days. So, at 8 p.m. you are going to stop eating, and you go through the night, and you will sleep.
When you wake up in the morning, you are not going to start eating; you will wait until noon and then you will get 8 hours to eat. So, you can have whatever you want to eat during those 8 hours, snack, dinner, lunch, and that’s how it works.
So, on the low days, you are going to restrict the amount of protein you have to a 25 gram, and that’s very easy to do as well. So, as an example you have can four hard-boiled eggs or six tablespoons of peanut butter. Meals you might eat on a protein-restricted day could be a butternut squash soup or a taco salad, and both of them have very low protein.
The 15-day plan to weight loss:
Here’s your plan for the whole week, this is how it works:
On Monday, you can have a high day when there is no restriction on your diet. On Tuesday, you will do your intermittent fasting and your protein cycling, and that’s a low day. This goes back and forth throughout the week.
This can be a 15 days jump start program, but it ultimately changes your lifestyle. So you can do it all the time, and you will love the benefits of it – the energy, the mental focus, the weight loss.
