I designed this Low Carb and High Fat challenge to help people get healthy and lose a few pounds in doing so. It’s aimed at teaching your body to intermittent fast for 14-18 hours over night with 2 large meals per day and 1 snack. Think about having a large fry up when you stay in a hotel… you are literally full for hours and will often skip lunch and go straight to dinner. The idea is that you would wait until you are actually hungry enough to have a decent size, nutritious breakfast to keep you full for 5-6 hours!
It won’t happen over night but this way of eating will train your body to easily go for hours without even thinking about food. I think we are all guilty of snacking mindlessly since lock down and the idea of surviving on just 2 meals seems unachievable. However this challenge is going to give you the tools by gently easing you into fasting over 4 weeks with loads of tips and support! Many of the participants are easily fasting for 24 hour by the end of week 2!
In the first week you are going to get in touch with your hunger and fullness queues and try to limit your snacking… often times we are eating out of boredom or because we are craving sugar and not because we are actually hungry! Cutting down on carbohydrates and increasing healthy fats will reduce cravings, while at the same time balance out energy and mood! This gives huge freedom from thinking about food all day long!
Excess glucose in the form of high carb foods and sugar can trigger weight around the tummy and when we take these foods out of the diet the waist line will naturally start to shrink! I’ve included a tracker in the program so you can take your measurements. If you’d like to read through some of the girls comments you can scroll down to the very bottom of this page!
Studies have shown (Murphy et el 2018) that participants consuming a LCHF or keto diet naturally consumed less calories because of reduced hunger. This is so important for any long term dietary strategy because it means you are not constantly fighting will power and there’s higher chance of success.
No need to fear healthy fats when carbohydrate levels and calories are reduced. Most of the problems experienced with a high fat diet comes from the typical SAD diet (Standard American Diet) where people are consuming an excess of calories and carbohydrates alongside unhealthy fats and damaged fats. Think deep fried chips, donuts, crisps and processed foods. On my plan I encourage people to eat a range of colourful low carb vegetables alongside quality protein and healthy fats.
This is not a set meal plan, although a sample meal plan, recipes and a base shopping list are provided for inspiration. This makes the program much more flexible and suitable for both males and females, meat eaters, vegetarians and pescetarians!
If the plan is suitable and you’d like to feel more comfortable in your clothes, ditch the snacking and join an amazingly supportive community you can sign up by clicking the link below… Your info will be sent out the week before the challenge starts.
You can now avail of my 10 day Keto Kickstart for (€99) plus the 28 day fasting challenge (€97) for the reduced price of €147 (saving you 25% / €50)
The 28 day challenge is a lovely program to transition onto after the Kickstart because when you are using fat for energy, fasting becomes so much easier! Plus the 28 Day Challenge is more flexible with carbs and alcohol so therefore easier to maintain longer term (if you’ve a bit more weight to lose).
