It’s all Fun and Games Until You Forget to Feed the Kids

In my experience, intermittent fasting has very few downsides. It’s convenient, cost-effective, flexible, and offers a host of health benefits. But as a mother of three very active little boys under the age of 12, there is one issue that I’ve run into several times since I started.

Push Yourself…But Not Too Far!

When starting my What IF Diet Plan, I quickly learned that fasting is more about our thoughts and beliefs about food and nutrition, than it is about food itself. First of all, I thought there was absolutely no way that I could go without food for more than 10 hours, unless I had been sedatedContinue reading “Push Yourself…But Not Too Far!”

2018 – A New Year, a New Me, but Not How I Expected it.

The Blame Game – One Man and a Baby

Fortunately, (depending how you look at it,) I did end up losing most of my baby weight after the first few months of giving birth. I continued to eat my small pre-portioned meals, while trying to resist my husband’s home cooking, and running 2 – 3 miles per day on our home treadmill. And believeContinue reading “The Blame Game – One Man and a Baby”
