Think about what you eat, you may try… intermittent fasting

Your mind, your endocrine system and healthy functions of the digestive tract play a crucial role in weight loss. Ask yourself honestly – is my current diet sensible and balanced? Make sure it contains enough proteins and fibre. Did you know that we should try to eat approx. 30 different fruits and vegetables weekly, including vegetable bulbs, various nuts, or seeds? Intermittent fasting is not exactly a diet, but a way of eating. This method changes the eating schedule. We recommend the 16/8 method, it works great for weight reduction. The method works in two phases: the food phase (approx. 8 hours) and the fasting phase (approx. 16 hours). The point is that you skip breakfast and eat your first meal around 12 noon, thus starting the food phase. You can eat till about 8 pm. This is followed by fasting until noon the next day. We advise you to consult this method with your doctor/dietician first. Current life restrictions shouldn’t necessarily prevent you from losing weight. Even in today’s difficult times, you can try to move a bit (strength exercises at home, or “ordinary” walking outdoors. Done! Good luck on your way to new life & slimmer figure!
We look forward to meet you here in the Czech Republic!
