Late Night Eating (After Drinking)

Tags:

I'm not much of a late-night eater. Fortunately, through practice, I've changed that pattern of behavior. I like my overnight fasting period to be as long as possible. However, this past Saturday night I was legit hungry around 11pm.

Recipe: Fall Coffee Treat

Tags:

When possible, I don't eat before my workouts. I do 95% of my workouts about 10-12 hours into an overnight fast. The exception is when I'm really hungry. If I'm really hungry and feel that not eating will negatively impact my workout intensity, I'll have a small snack that won't impact my blood sugar. I don't want my body using sugar to fuel my workouts; I want it using fat. ...Read More

Celebrating A Mindset Victory

Tags:

Last night I looked at today's workout and immediately thought: "Looks like a good day for a rest day!" I quickly started creating a story about how I could workout at home, how I have a lot of work to do, how that amount of running might irritate my knee. Basically, I started making a bunch of excuses. I started talking myself out of the workout. It looked hard. Running. Box ...Read More

I’m Fasting!

Last spring I did a 5-day fast with my good friend ELA from On Air with Ella. I did it out of curiosity as I had never done an extended fast. It was definitely hard but I learned a lot & built up a ton of confidence in myself. I shared my experience episode 310 of the podcast. That's probably a good episode to check out if you have questions ...Read More

403: When Hunger & Satiety Signals Break

Tags:

Today we are talking about how we mess up our body's natural ability to regulate hunger & satiety, or feelings of fullness. Our body is actually designed to keep us from gaining too much weight through a series of hormonal signals. However, we have the ability to impair those hormonal signals by overeating or eating too much sugar, starch & processed foods. Fortunately for all of us, we can fix ...Read More

What's the best thing I should eat to make sure I stay in fat burning mode? Does exercising ...Read More
