Why The 2 Meal Day Could Change Your Life This Year
If you want a positive lifestyle change to last a long period of time, it needs to become a way of life. This is where most diets fail, they may facilitate weight loss in the short term but most of them are unsustainable. You will put on weight as soon as you go back to your usual eating pattern.
Since I discovered intermittent fasting almost 5 years ago, it has become the most important discovery in my health and fitness journey, not only is it a way of life for me, my soul purpose in life at the moment is to share this way of eating with as many people as possible.
I truly believe IF is the missing link in our overall health and well-being because it can become a way of life. It gives you the power to reconnect with your body, which is one of the most empowering things you can do.
I experimented with many different types of IF and developed The 2 Meal Day, the only method that truly focuses on connecting your mind and body.
The two most popular methods of IF at the moment are the 5:2 and the 16:8.
The 5:2 involves eating “normally” for five days of the week and on two days you only eat 500 or 600 calories. It has been incredibly popular and successful but for most people, the two calorie counting days are incredibly restrictive and challenging. People usually follow the 5:2 until they lose weight and then go back to eating normally after. On top of that, it isn’t technically fasting (depending on how you eat those 600 calories).
The 16:8 protocol involves breaking your day up into a 16 hour fast with an 8 hour “eating window”. It can be followed every day since there is no calorie restriction. This is method is how I initially started my intermittent fasting journey.
The issue with both of these methods is the focus is on the wrong thing. By focusing on calories or time periods you never learn to listen to your body and understand what it needs and when it needs it.
Why The 2 Meal Day is different…
By skipping one meal, you are getting a 16 hour fast, but the focus is on eating when you feel hungry, not because the clock tells you to.
This slight change in focus makes a MASSIVE difference. It becomes a way of life rather than something you do in the short term to get you to your weight loss goals.
I follow The 2 Meal Day every day because of how it makes me feel, I am full of energy I never feel hungry, and I stay lean effortlessly. I regularly eat out with friends, and I love food – there are no feelings of restriction or deprivation, or I wouldn’t do it.
The 2 Meal Day is becoming a way of life for so many people because of its simple, effective and sustainable. It teaches your body to transition from burning sugars and carbohydrates to body fat for energy – this is one of the most empowering things you can do for your long-term health and wellness.
Not only will you lose weight, you will be FULL of energy all day long, no longer reaching for caffeine or nicotine or sugar to get you through the day.
Most surprisingly you will feel less hungry. T2MD teaches you to tune into your body. You will start to understand what “Real” hunger feels like, something that occurs every 16-24 hours not every four hours.
Being in a fasted state promotes incredible changes in the body. Taking us back to the way human beings ate for thousands of years when food wasn’t constantly available.
We have become dependent on sugar for energy. The mid-morning and afternoon slumps in energy levels have become the social norm, but I can assure you this is completely unnatural.
In the West, we have this phobia of having an empty stomach, but amazing things happen in the body when it is.
All you are doing is pushing your first meal later in the day and then enjoying two filling meals in the afternoon. Once you start to decrease how often you eat you will feel less hungry, and this is incredibly empowering.
T2MD has nothing to do with starvation. It’s about giving your body what it needs when it needs it. Just by pushing your first meal a bit later into the day you can optimise virtually every system in the body.
