———————————————————————————————————-

This video is going to be about how I maintain my weight…it’s called Intermittent Fasting 16/8 method.

In this video I’m going to tell you about HOW I eat and why it works. And in my next video I’m going to give you an idea of WHAT I eat on a weekly basis and why.

I am not a Nutritionist or Dietician. I’ve been eating the way I do for over 20 yrs now, and it’s just an eating style and pattern that has always worked for me. I’ve never been someone who diets, nor have I ever struggled with my weight. I’m 5’ 3.5” and I weigh 110 lbs.

I eat the way I do for 2 reasons.

1. Because I “feel” my best when I eat this way….meaning I have the most energy…and I’m rarely hungry, which means I’m not always thinking about what I’m going to eat next (which leaves you feeling helpless sometimes leads to excessive snacking).

2. Because I have a certain idea or goal in my mind about the way that I want to look, dressed and undressed, and this style of eating has always worked to achieve that goals for me.

So what Intermittent Fasting is, is basically an eating pattern where you have about an 8 hour window when you eat, and a 16 hour window when you fast. There is actually scientific and physiological explanations for why it’s a healthy practice and why it is so efficient in keeping energy levels high, weight off and allows you to maintain muscle tone with light exercise.

The way that Intermittent Fasting is explained in the literature is that when you begin eating a mea,l or food in general, your body naturally goes into a digestion and absorption phase that can last for 2-5 hours. When your body is actively digesting food it is very difficult for your body to burn fat because insulin levels are high and energy is being used to digest your food. Believe it or not digestion requires a lot of energy, which to me, explained my fatigue after eating breakfast.

Now after the 2-5 hours it takes your body to digest the food, typically you’re ready to eat again. So again, you eat and you initiate digestion and absorption phase which requires energy and doesn’t allow for much fat burning since insulin levels are once again high. So there’s 2-5 MORE hours that your body requires to digest your food.

After you’ve eaten your last meal, and after 2-5 hours have passed, your body is no longer processing food. So when your body is no longer processing food, insulin levels begin to drop and your body begins to burn fat. This is the fasting phase. But it doesn’t begin until almost 12 hours after you’ve eaten your last meal. So if you eat your last meal at 8pm, the fasting phase doesn’t begin until almost 8 am. This is when your body is able to burn fat that wasn’t accessible to it during the time your body was preoccupied with digesting the food you’d just eaten. So by not eating breakfast, you are allowing your body to continue to efficiently burn fat, and you’re also keeping your energy levels up because your body is not actively using energy to digest your food.

One thing about Intermittent Fasting is that it’s not so much considered a “diet” as it is a “pattern” of eating. It has less to do with what you eat and more to do with when you eat. However, that doesn’t mean in your 8 hour window you should be eating whatever you want and as much as you want. Binge eating junk food is just never a good idea for plenty of other reasons. You don’t want to fuel your body with junk that can lead to diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, blood pressure. So many illnesses stem from unhealthy eating habits.

    Hi, do you drink the coffee in the morning plain? You don’t say if it’s plain or if add anything. Would love to know how you make it, etc. Iced coffee sounds delicious. Thanks.

    Thank you for the video! I need to try this…my body is changing as I age. Breakfast makes me tired too and I end up just snacking and eating all day! I don't eat past 6 usually but I think the fat burning after the 12 hours will do wonders!

    Question, do you have energy in the am because of the caffeine or the fasting? I don’t drink coffee or caffeine or stimulants. I don’t find that I have more energy or not when fasting. But it’s the same to me whether I drink my protein shake or not I will say, breakfast makes me hungrier. When I don’t eat breakfast and eat at 2pm my first mean I am not as hungry.

    my diet is calle PIZZA..it is quite simple, it consists of PIZZA, and yes I am fat. lol
    Intermittent fasting is great (you just need to make sure that you avoid high carb high animal fat foods)…high protein and high fat foods are fine.
    I need to stop my pizza habbit, best eating habbits (as mentioned in the video) are
    intermittent fasting, eating window, paleo and keto diet (eat low carb between 12-6pm) and you'll start losing weight right away (managing to maintain that eating habbit is another story)

    I HATE eating in the mornings!!! When I eat in the mornings I think about food constantly for the rest of the day and I'm not as productive. I eat in the afternoons most of the time because it works for me. I don't drink coffee but I do drink water constantly to keep me going and full.

    Love your video!! Which fat free creamer do you use in your coffee? Can you post your "recipe" for your morning iced coffee? I read online that if you drink something in the morning before your first meal, if it's under 50 calories it will not break your fast 👍

    I remember being pushed to eat breakfast even though I wasn’t hungry in the morning because “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” and “your brain needs fuel in the morning”. Now it seems the thinking has changed. After watching some Dr. Berg videos I started skipping breakfast and I definitely feel I have more energy in the morning. I’ve always had this rule to not eat anything after 7pm except herbal tea. So I fast between 7-11:30 ish. So I fast at least 16 hours. I just eat when I get hungry usually between 11:30-noon. Before that I only have water, herbal tea, or coffee. But when I was weight training my trainer kept trying to make me add a protein breakfast back in. He said I wouldn’t gain muscle if I didn’t eat 5 times a day. I only eat 2 meals a day.

    Wow, I knew I liked you Jennifer! This was two years ago and love that I found your channel in 2019!!!❣️About 17 years ago I remember watching Oprah and a diet expert was on telling about the same thing and how breakfast can trigger hunger and that we should eat only straight protein, but that it’s better not to eat anything unless it has zero carbs. I wondered why I naturally followed this rrule, but it does work for energy and staying trim and healthy!❤️
    I also never eat breakfast because I desperately need all the energy I can get. As a rule twice a year I do a cleansing 3-5 day juice fast, so this really helps when it’s time To have discipline for it.💖

    I started doing IF about a year ago, its seriously the best thing for me, definitely something I can do for ever, not like a diet where you stop eating carbs or sweets for a while then you drop the weight, but once you start eating it again you gain the weight back and then some more

    I did IF and Keto for 3 months at the beginning of the year and lost 2 lbs onlyI I loved IF because I’m not a breakfast person at all and only start getting hungry around 11 am but can definitely wait another 1-2 hours before eating. What didn’t work for me was the high fat content. My body doesn’t do well with high fat diets at all (I learned that the hard way 😆) and I used to be able to loose weight by just cutting dinner and eating plant based with small amount of lean meat. Unfortunately after I turned 40 I noticed that even doing those things are not helping me loose weight or keep a healthy weight like before. I also gained a lot of weight around my waist/belly area. That was the most puzzling to me because it happened without me eating anything different than what I used to eat before when I had a flat stomach and small waist. I feel like my body is such a mystery now 🤷🏼‍♀️ but I’m still trying to figure it out

    I know this is an old video, but it's great. I always eat more and am groggy all day long if I eat breakfast. It triggers my hunger, too. IF has really helped me lose weight and feel better. I eat between 12-6pm and eat 1-2 meals during that eating window. I have coffee before noon & eat lunch at around 1:30-2 pm, we eat dinner around 5-ish. Zero snacking & nothing but water or herbal tea after dinner. I feel amazing.

    I do it from 6pm till 10am the next day but only have a coffee then (I hate it black so it has milk) I have my lunch at 12pm some snacks etc through out the day. I have my dinner for 5ish usually full of protein. And that’s me for the day. That works fine for me. I’ve only 7 pounds to lose so it’s taking a while, but this is really helping. I don’t tend to do it a day at the weekend so I can have a few drinks. But I don’t usually eat after a dinner. I have loads of energy and I feel good. Not depriving myself and because I’m sleeping for the most part I don’t feel bad.

    You are so pretty, but as a retired hairdresser the blonde hair is too harsh for your skin tone. Maybe add some darker to it

    I never eat after 3:00 PM
    I never had a weight problem. I do think that part of it is genetic. I am 5'4 and weigh 95 lbs. I never sit around. I am always busy.

    I love watching all ur videos. esp to hear we like our coffee, we don't like plain water and don't eat fried foods or sweets…. I normally eat my breakfast for lunch after my speedwalking on the treadmill, but I find it lately I don't lose any weight, at times I gain and drop again but never break the weight barrier to reach my goal.. any suggestions?

    My husband and I did Intermittent fasting together with keto (keto were we did avoid unhealthy fat like butter, greasy meat and too much oil) and it was the best way to lose weight. My husband lost 30lbs in 2 months and I lost 10 lbs (that’s all I needed to lose, and I did vegetarian keto). My husband mostly stuck with salads and lean meats, eggs, low carb veggies and avoided breads, rice, potatoes, pasta, sweet fruits and all sugars.
