Episode 87: Geeky Magic – Fasting & The Holidays
Is it possible to fully enjoy the holiday festivities and foods without gaining weight? I say, YES! Learn how to have your cake and eat it too with some fasting and exercise tips to follow before or after your big holiday meal.
Whether you’re a fasting rookie or a seasoned fasting pro, it’s a great way to balance out your caloric intake without having to sacrifice the pleasure of eating your favorite holiday foods. After all, if you’re like me, food is a massive source of pleasure and totally worth splurging for special occasions. In this episode, I also invite you to let go of that berating voice inside your head and enjoy each and every bite of delicious food—whether you’re able to fast or not. It’s your life, ladies! Enjoy it!
Make sure you get access to the show notes, they are packed with more information, diagrams, and resources for this episode.
