Intermittent Fasting (I.F.) + What I Eat!

This is what I do, and what works for me.

Please speak with a Registered Dietician for your specific needs.

I follow the 16:8 method of intermittent fasting because it works with my yoga practice and my active, busy training lifestyle!

I also eat intuitively, meaning I listen to my body and hunger cues.


12:00 PM - 8:00 PM (8 hour Eating Window)


8:00 PM - 12:00 PM (16 hour Fasting Window)

I EAT LOTS OF SLOW CARBS (Veggies and Fruits)


Vegetables and Fruits are slow carbs and should be the bulk of a healthy eating plan.

Healthy complex slow-burning carbs = colorful fresh fruits and veg!

HYDRATE (water, water, water)...

12:00 PM or 1:00 PM Break the Fast

I enjoy mixing Intermittent Fasting with eating real whole foods (fruits and vegetables, healthy fats (nuts, seeds, nut butters, avocado, olive oil), lean proteins, low-fat cottage cheese and other low-fat or nonfat dairy), and small portions of whole grains).


Here are some of my healthy meal and snack examples:

Lowfat, High Protein Cottage Cheese Bowl with raw cashews, clementines, cucumbers soaked in white vinegar, mary's gone crackers jalapeno. 

Easy, Delicious Mediterranean Salad (pictured below);
persian cucumbers, cilantro, green onions, tomatoes, lemon juice, olive oil, white vinegar, pink himalayan sea salt, black pepper, cumin.


Smoothies are convenient and super nutritious because you can put so much healthy stuff in the blender! I always put my super greens powder and a big handful of fresh spinach! 


before adding to the blender :



I always keep the fridge stocked with fresh, colorful veggies and berries!


Decaf Green Tea.
So many health benefits to Green Tea!

Protein, Veggies, Healthy Fats, Berries

Wild Caught Salmon pan fried with lemon, olive oil, and pink himalayan sea salt, with my favorite salad (red onion, cucumber, strawberries, white vinegar, pink sea salt, black pepper).


I really enjoy Built Bars (protein bars that taste like a marshmallow candy bar!) They have 130 calories, 5g sugar and 17g protein!
