When I first started intermittent fasting for weight loss, I experienced some pretty funky side effects. Side effects I never experienced from other weight loss plans before. From dry mouth to wild dreams, it seemed like my body was living in some strange alternate dimension!
Intermittent fasting for weight loss isn’t a new concept. In this post I dive into how I use simple and mindful techniques to manage your hunger.
Creating structure and reducing anxiety in challenging times is not only difficult, but can seem next to impossible. Not knowing what the future will look like in terms of work and school has thrown my normal well-grounded self into a bit of a tailspin.

When I started intermittent fasting, getting my workouts in was a major concern. I was convinced that I could not workout without properly fueling with either food or a pre-workout.
