How To Gradually
Restrict Your Eating Window
This week in my private Fit Over 40 Facebook group, one of the members asked this question, and it sparked an interesting conversation.
“Have any of you tried intermittent fasting? If so, how long do you fast and how many days? What benefits have you gained?”

Here’s my response…
When it comes to intermittent fasting, it’s important to find the right window for your body. Right now, the guideline is to eat within an 8-hour window with a 16-hour overnight fast…compared to the traditional method of eating breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in-between.
This period of overnight fasting helps control blood sugar and clean out any garbage in the cells. This is effective, but may not be right for everyone.
The most effective solution to start restricting your eating window is to begin eating within a 14-hour window (7 am – 9 pm), then adjust to a 12-hour window (8 am – 8 pm), then a 10 hour window (9 am – 7 pm), and finally an 8-hour window (10 am – 6 pm).
By finding the “goldilocks range” of blood sugar where it’s neither too low nor too high, you can help prevent cognitive decline. This is why it’s as important to care about your blood sugar as your 401k! Health isn’t the most important thing, but without it, nothing else matters.
Here’s a shocking fact… 60% of cognitive decline can be prevented by managing blood sugar!
We often associate the idea of “balancing blood sugar” with diabetes. But balancing healthy blood sugar levels is a key concept for maintaining energy throughout the day! Watch this video to see how food can be draining your energy on a daily basis… WATCH NOW!
Another key to balancing blood sugar is to get a minimum of 10 mins of movement every day. A simple way to get that 10-min burst before you get in the shower every morning with this 10-min abs workout…
