Example of eating

I plan to follow the16/8 fasting plan and plan to begin tonight at 8pm to start eating 12 noon tomorrow. How should I start eating and how often for? Should I eat little and often or should I eat a meal and a meal later? If I go out at night for a meal should I wait to eat only then? Should I count calories

Hi Georgia,

the principle of BodyFast is very simple - you can always  skip meals and give your body a break. On the one hand, this results in  numerous health effects and, on the other hand, weight loss, which also  depends on the frequency and duration of the fasting periods.

In  the eating periods you can basically eat what you want. This is also  the advantage BodyFast has over other weight loss methods. You do not  have to count calories or change your meals. However, I have the  following tips for you:

Instead  of counting calories or following specific diet plans, we recommend a  simple rule of thumb that will help you develop a natural sense of  moderate and healthy portion sizes:

+  One full-size portion of protein-containing foods (meat, eggs, dairy,  etc.) and a fist-sized portion of vegetables at each meal.

+  For most meals, a hollow hand full of carbohydrates (pasta, rice,  fruits) and a thumb-sized portion of fatty foods like butter, oil, and  nuts.

These figures apply to women, men double the amount.

Of  course, intermittent fasting can also be combined with other diets such  as low-carb or ketogenic, ie carbohydrate-limited diet.
