Fasting vs Starving

Fasting vs Starving Dr. Nadia Pateguana outlines the clear difference between Fasting and Starving. There’s a bit of confusion between “fasting” and “starving.” Some people may think both are the same but, in fact, they are quite different. For one, fasting is a voluntary practice of completely abstaining from food for a period of time, whereas starving is often imposed or an involuntary act. Proper fasting is done “intermittently,” as in alternate day fasts or even more prolonged fasts of two days or more. If done properly, fasting can have many great benefits. In between fasting periods, people are encouraged to “feast” properly or, in other words, eat their choice of foods (preferably who

The Right Balance between Fasting and Eating for Weight Loss.

"The 60/40 Rule" Dr. Nadia Brito Pateguana outlines the best balance between fasting and eating for weight loss. Probably one of the most frustrating and confusing things our clients face during their journeys is trying to figure out how to lose weight and CONTINUE to lose weight. (Not all our clients want to lose weight – as shocking as that may seem to some. Weight is only one expression of hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance, and it may in fact be a protective expression. More on that later…) When you are trying to lose weight, it can be frustrating as heck, especially if that scale just won’t budge. (Have you heard Megan tell you to throw out that lying scale yet? You should.) And, i

Tuesday Tips: My Favourite Fasting Schedule

My favourite fasting schedule For best results, Dr. Nadia Pateguana prefers 2x48h IF TFM’s recommendation for weight loss is widely known as the ADF (Alternate Day Fasting) Regimen. Most often our clients are instructed and taught to follow a 3×24/36/42 Intermittent Fasting Schedule when they are looking to lose weight. Most do very well and as such this has become our “Gold Standard.” Other common fasting schedules include the daily 16/8 and the famous “OMAD” (One meal a day). IDM has numerous resources on all of these and information on why ADF might be more successful for weight loss than these last two. A few people also enjoy and do some EF (Extended Fasts) for weight loss purposes. Thi

Tuesday Tips: My Five Pillars

My Five Pillars Dr. Nadia Brito Pateguana reveals what she considers to be the keys to successful fasting If you’ve ever been on a call with me, as a coaching client or in one of my groups, you’ve certainly heard me talk incessantly about “The Five Pillars,” or what I consider to be MY five pillars. I’ve also written about these in an article titled The Five Major Factors for lowering insulin. Fortunately, the people that I’ve shared these “Five Pillars” with and have successfully been able to implement these appropriately into their lifestyles, have done very well, and I hope you do, too! First of all, let me define what I mean by “Pillars.” As I mentioned above, I’ve written an article on

Tuesday Tips: Plating and Mindful Eating

Plating and Mindful Eating “Plating” is a word I didn’t make up, but I think I made up a new definition for it. To me, “Plating” means bringing all the foods you want to eat onto your plate, or the table around your plate, and only starting to eat when you are sitting in front of that same plate. You do not eat as you are cooking. You do not eat as you are walking around. You don’t graze. You don’t eat in your car. You don’t eat while you are working or watching TV, or doing anything else. You only eat when you are sitting, in an eating area, in front of the plate you’ve decided you’re going to eat from – and you eat as many of the foods that you have brought together as you feel like until
