Intuitive 4-week fasting guide from a functional medicine expert
For the final week, you will return to the 12 hour fasting window of the first week. But this time around, we’ll be adding more “clean carb intake” days, which means increasing your nutritious carbs like fruits, sweet potatoes, and rice. This cyclical approach, coupled with a larger feeding window and shorter fasts, may help support thyroid hormones and progesterone for women.
While longer periodic fasting periods have their benefits, I designed this four week plan to stretch your eating windows and help you become metabolically flexible and sustainable. If fasting variability is a yoga class for your metabolism, then “Rebalancing Week” is savasana. You know that moment at the end of your yoga class where you lie down, relax and meditate on all the amazing work you just did?
This tailored approach allows you to use both the tools of fasting and a healthy diet to help you, like yoga, get centered and reconnect with how your body is supposed to feel. Soft and flexible fasting windows are designed to uplift your sensations and anchor you in your body so that you can find nourishment and bodily peace.
