Intermittent fasting generally describes a simple concept: You can eat pretty much whatever you want, but only during a specific period of time. There are few common schedules that IF proponents follow, according to the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics: Time-restricted fasting: This schedule, which includes the popular 16:8 method, has you fasting for about 16 hours per day and eating within an eight-hour window. Most people do this by starting their fast at night, skipping breakfast, and eating their first meal around lunchtime. That gives them another seven or so hours to feed themselves until tomorrow.
Modified fasting: This option, commonly known as the 5:2 diet, allows you to eat about 25% of your recommended calorie needs on two fasting days each week and eat without restriction on the other five days.”
I’m Meredith. And I tried it all.
Atkins, Southbeach, Nutrisystem, Weight watchers, Jenny Craig.
And I even listened to that silly baseball guy who talked about the shakes on TV for all those years.
And yet, since I had first daughter at 28, I haven’t been able to lose any weight…
Well, maybe a few pounds for a little while but then it all comes roaring back when I stop whatever gimmick I’m on that month.
You should’ve seen me in my college days. I was tall, slim and had been blessed by the good lord with an hourglass figure that always turned heads.
Hey, it’s how I attracted my husband Tom!
But after Andrea was born… I couldn’t get back down to my normal 130. I’m 5 foot 7, and that was always a great weight on me.
Yet I’ve spent the better part of 20 years pushing 220 pounds.
Then one sleepless night, I stumbled on a health segment on MSNBC…
Featuring Sam Hansen, a regular middle-aged Chicago-native who’d spent two years finding a weight loss solution that helped his overweight wife Angela finally lose 72 pounds.
The biggest revelation from Sam was that women in their 30s, 40s and even 50s don’t lose weight and are storing fat because of leptin resistance.
Leptin in a nutshell is a brain molecule that sends signals to your brain that — when you have enough fat stored — you don’t feel the need to eat more and more. And your body will automatically know to burn off excess fat.
Leptin resistance is when your brain fails to receive the leptin signal and erroneously thinks that your body is starving.
And so the vicious cycle continues — your body piles whatever you eat to your already enlarged fat cells — making you gain more and more weight.
So, no matter how much you work yourself to death in the gym or restrict your diet as much as you want, leptin resistance make absolutely certain you never lose an ounce of fat.
At that moment, it dawned on me that it wasn’t my fault that I could not lose weight.
All of the things I thought I was doing right, all the advice I’d receive from health professionals – starving myself, running until I ached, eliminating carbs, yadda, yadda, yadda — they weren’t really helping me because I wasn’t fixing the root cause of weight gain.
All that time and effort, not to mention thousands of dollars down the drain because I was fed lies by these so call health professionals who merely helped me treat and mask the weight gain “symptoms”, while all this time, leptin resistance was making me gain more and more weight.
Can you believe that?
Sam continued to explain that by following a simple 5-second Japenese “Samurai ritual”, no matter your age, shape or size, you can effectively overcome leptin resistance, banish hunger and prevent overeating and burn stubborn fat.
Despite Sam showing a “before” picture and an “after” picture of his wife Angela from a couple of months ago, I was skeptical about the 5-second Japanese “Samurai ritual.”
But I owed it to myself to at least give this morning trigger a try.
And really, I was desperate to try anything.
You won’t believe what happened next!
In a single week, I lost 9 pounds and could really see the difference right away. My hips seemed slimmer and my jeans started to loosen up.
So I kept following Sam’s advice and I actually lost 67 pounds total in the next 5 months!
I’m not down to 130, but at my age and for my height, I think 145 is pretty darn good.
I look amazing in a sun dress and I feel 20 years younger… and to tell a bit of a secret… Tom can’t keep his hands off me!
Since then, I have found out that Sam made it his mission in life to share this healthy weight loss discovery with women all across the world.
Sam’s discovery has made such a big impact on my life that I would regret it if I did not share his presentation with others.
Imagine waking up every morning full of energy and loving what you see in the mirror…
Imagine enjoying the foods you love: pasta, wine, or even a dessert — completely guilt-free…
And imagine feeling good and living your life without obsessing about every single calorie you eat…
All while knowing your health is being protected by one of the most powerful natural healing rituals ever discovered.
If you’re a woman who has struggled with weight loss, you owe it to yourself to watch Sam’s presentation and finally have the solution you need to lose weight and take full control of your life once and for all.
The consequences would have been disastrous had I not have stumbled across Sam’s discovery.
I would never be living the life of my dreams right now.
And I would have continued to gain more weight and be inundated with a whole set of chronic diseases including heart-attacks, diabetes and chronic joint pains.
