Follow @plantifulfacts ⬇️ Epsom salts get their name from a town in England where these mineral salts are harvested. These salts have been used for centuries to naturally treat muscle pains, cleanse the skin, relieve foot conditions, and even treat insomnia. - Epsom salts get their healing properties from two health-boosting compounds: MAGNESIUM and SULFATE. Magnesium is important for our health. Among many other functions, it regulates enzymes all throughout the body. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, “Every organ in the body, especially the heart, muscles, and kidneys, needs magnesium.” - The sulfate component of Epsom salts also plays a major role in detoxing the body. Sulfates encourage the absorption of nutrients and flush toxins out. They are also used to build joints, skin and nervous tissue throughout your body. - One of the most popularly used oils in aromatherapy, LAVENDER OIL, is recognized for its healing properties. Studies have found that lavender is just as effective at treating anxiety as some of the most popular pharmaceuticals. - By adding lavender essential oil to your bath, you are able to relax your muscles and de-stress. One study looked at the effects of lavender oil in hot baths on 80 women. It was noted that the participants experienced positive mood changes. When asked, participants in one sample felt like they had a more optimistic outlook for the future. Who knew a bath could do that? - - 👁️ Stay woke my friends (TRY TO OPT AWAY FROM THE BAKING SODA THO‼️) - - #alkaline#naturalremedy#herbs#epsomsaltbath#holistic#blackhealth#vegan#toxins#alkalinevegan#fasting#intermittentfasting#organic#fruit#vegetables#plantbased#alkalinevegan#livingfoods#enzymes#electricfoods#alkalineliving#rawfoods#blackhealthmatters#alkalineveganrecipes#drsebi#essentialoils#lavenderessentialoil#lavender#plantbasediet#plantbased#holisticnutrition#blabkvegans

Green foods are good, right?! Well, it depends on which ones and when you’re eating them. If you’re breaking your fast, our nutritionist recommends avoiding raw, cruciferous veggies...like broccoli. It’s high in fiber and and raffinose, which can lead to uncomfortable post-fast bloating. Avocado is a great alternative that has healthy fats that will help you feel full and energized. After your digestive system has gotten its groove back (note: the longer you fast, the longer you’ll want to take it easy), you can bring on the broccoli!
There is no 🙅🏻♀️one aspect of your diet that is the "reason" you can't lose weight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Intermittent fasting, keto, cutting carbs... These things can ALL WORK. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yes, hormones and macros and all that DO matter on some level, BUT... Most people don't even have the basics down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They have no idea how many calories they're eating, they don't know what foods make them feel good and which don't, they're scared to eat bananas because of the carb content and yet, they're worried about insulin 🤯and to complicate things even further... there's an influencer sitting in Erewhon market telling them through instagram stories that they have to put a bunch of expensive sh*t in their coffee to lose weight! 🤬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sure, there are ways to eat that are more ideal than others, but that's completely personal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don't sacrifice your emotional health and happiness to follow a trend that you don't enjoy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Focus on the big picture. Get the basics down first. THEN, you can experiment with some of these other things and see how you feel. It doesn't have to be so complicated! 🙌🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If this resonated with you, tag a friend who needs to hear this! ⬇️
i feel really grateful that i’ve come to a place of peace with my eating habits. lately i haven’t been hungry after waking up. i’ve been listening to that body cue and waiting until lunchtime to eat. but this morning, i woke up STARVING. almost 2 years ago i was so caught up in a pattern of intermittent fasting that if there was ever a day when i woke up hungry, i’d pound coffee to quiet the noise. i’ve been nervous that this unintentional fasting was going to put me back in the same place i was in 2018. but this morning, when i woke up hungry, i immediately went to the store to get all my favorite breakfast foods. i came home, cooked, ate and ENJOYED. it’s taken a lot of time and hard work for me to reach this place but it feels so good to know that i’m taking the steps to do what’s right for ME, in the moment. without expectation or judgement. if you choose to fast, that’s great! if you don’t, that’s great too! doing what feels intuitively right for YOUR body in YOUR time is the most important thing. happy friday friends!!! @awgbakery toast with @miyokoscreamery vegan cream cheese spread, organic avocado, two fried eggs + oat milk latte.
One grainy still shot from an iPhone video to another! Singing is one of my favorite things to do, but singing on stage in front of people has always been a source of major anxiety. I still did it and pushed through, but it was always extremely nerve wracking. This picture on the left was me close to my heaviest. That day we had rehearsal, then a 1 hour break before the concert. I hated what I was wearing and felt so self conscious, so I ran to the store during that hour and found this outfit instead. I felt really cute, but of course I was not thrilled when I watched myself on the video. Last night we had our Christmas concert and it was so freeing to step onto the stage and not worry about sucking in or standing at my best angle. I honestly didn’t even give my appearance a second thought and instead enjoyed the music and the experience. Feeling more confident in my body has 100% given me more confidence in other areas of my life, including being onstage. This journey is so much more than numbers or measurements, it’s about living your life to the fullest! #mondaymotivation#motivationmonday#motivation#nsv#nonscalevictory#beforeandafter#keto#ketoweightloss#ketomotivation#weightloss#ketodiet#weightlossjourney#weightlossmotivation#losingweight#transformation#intermittentfasting#intermittentfastingresults#krystalloses

Have you heard about intermittent fasting?? So I started two weeks ago, some days (like the weekend) i skip it. Basically you start the day with water/tea or black coffee☕️.. There are different ways to do it. The one i try is, fasting for 16 hours and eating for 8 hours. Meaning I mostly start to eat at 11.30 till 19.30. They say you get lots of energy, no energy dips, easy way to stay in shape, and anti aging 🤷♀️ I Let’s see... I actually did this in Bali a lot, without knowing it🐸. I started my days surfing till 11 then breakfast. Now it’s a bit different, in an office, but after two weeks it’s easy. Just getting used to is it! And I feel good, so let’s see what it brings me;) Anyone doing it longer already and feeling the benefits?? ☕️ 💪 📸 @camilla_benocci 👕@boohoo
These days, we hear a lot about fasting. Intermittent fasting, time-restricted eating, and water fasting are just some of the many terms being thrown around in support of better health. Food has an amazing ability to heal, but the timing of when we eat or abstain from eating can also have really amazing impacts on our health. And we can’t forget about the high-fat, ketogenic, and low-carb approaches that are gaining in popularity as well. Which one is best? What does it all mean for our longevity, brain health, and overall wellness? On today’s mini-sode of The Doctor’s Farmacy, Dr. Valter Longo and I dive into the popular and complex topic of fasting. Valter’s research and development of the Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD), a diet that helps you feel fed and nourished without completely starving the body, has been found to support anti-inflammatory gut bacteria and support the mechanisms that lead to better aging. I hope you’ll tune in!
As the clock strikes 8, the dust settles on another day of intermittent fasting for many. An eating strategy designed entirely around the chronology of time focused eating windows. And often used as an intended weight loss intervention. One method coined ‘16:8’ proposes a fasted state for 16 hours, leaving 8 hours for the accumulation of one’s entire daily food intake - usually between 10-6 or 12-8. And though some individual studies report weight loss benefits under the jurisdiction of IF, such advantages do not triumph over energy restriction (calorie deficit). Instead, one can surmise that these results occur because of reduction in allowed eating times may have inadvertently reduced total calories consumed. One is definitely better placed to consult analysis of the literature in the form of systematic reviews, or meta analysis. In doing so, a balanced appraisal of many studies can be analysed to provide a nigh on definitive outcome. In a recent meta analysis by Harris et al in 2018, they compared intermittent fasting energy restriction vs continuous/regular energy restriction as interventions for treatment of obesity in adults. They concluded that whilst both interventions achieved reduction in bodyweight, that there was no significant difference in weight loss between the two. To conclude, if you enjoy eating breakfast or late night meals/snacks and you want to lose weight, you can. And if you enjoy foregoing breakfast or late night meals/snacks and you want to lose weight, you can. Therefore, IF can be an effective tool alongside calorie restriction (pending personal preference), but without energy restriction it is a redundant intervention for weight loss. Put simply, IF zealots who reference average evidence as confirmation to their fantastical belief that IF holds more weight loss advantages than regular caloric restriction are wrong by virtue of current evidence. And they should probably stop arguing
I tried DRY FASTING for 24 HOURS 😱 . I know, I know. I’ve always said dry fasting is dangerous and I’d never do it... . ❌And it IS dangerous . But my research kept drawing me back to it so I decided to finally give it a go. . Some of the benefits of dry fasting include: 🔅 Autophagy: old, malfunctioning cells are broken down for energy and new, healthy cella take their place 🔅Fights inflammation: a study on those who partook in fasting for Ramadan showed significant reduction in inflammatory markets 🔅Best for skin: reviews of the fasting literature suggest that dry fasting is the best kind of fasting for skin health 🔅Metabolic water production: theoretically, dry fasting forces your body to make its won water by burning up fat cells 🔅Improved immune function: autophagy is particular impactful in the immune system 🔅& More! . I specifically did it for the skin health benefits and the theory that it could force my body to produce its own moisture again to help me heal from TSW. . I vlogged my whole experience and just posted the video to my YouTube channel! Go check it out to see how it went! Link in bio & in my story 💗 . 🎉Also, SUPER EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT: Pre-registration is NOW OPEN for Tier 2& 3 support for BRAINS & GAINS, my fitness and lifestyle program for students launching in January 🙌🏻 . Spots are VERY limited so if you want one, get in quick! . Link for more info & to sign up in my story! www.missfitandnerdy.com/brains-gains
👨🏫What can I have during a fast? - If you are finding yourself asking this question, you need to figure out what your primary goal is for fasting. Don’t just fast because someone told you to fast. Fast with a purpose. - Once you have determined your primary goal for fasting, these are my suggestions for the question, “what can I have during a fast?” - It is also important to understand that you need to find what works best for you. This is what I have found works best for myself and people I have worked with but you may find something different. As always, be your own scientist and experiment so you know which tools are more effective for your goal!

Any sweet taste in your mouth can cause an insulin spike and it’s impossible to burn fat while your insulin is spiked.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Using sweeteners makes my fast more difficult. I don’t like feeling hungry and getting crazy hunger pangs either, no thank you 🙅♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fats don’t spike your insulin which is why Dr. Fung allows his patients to consume fat but not sweeteners while following his fasting protocol.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is not a traditional way of fasting, but you can still reap most of the benefits as a water fast... and I’m fine with that 👌⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just so we’re clear... a traditional fast is zero calories.

LOADED BREAKFAST HASH SKILLET with @mightysparkfood turkey & bacon blend, veggies, eggs, cheese, and 🥑🥑 - Recipe by: @shredhappens - For the protein I used some Mighty Spark turkey & bacon blend and some pepper jack cheese. For the veggies, instead of potatoes, I used rutabaga, then added some red bell pepper, garlic, jalapeños, onion, and fresh thyme + basil. Of course added some more fresh jalapeños and avocado on the top. . The good thing about breakfast hash is you can use whatever you want. There are no rules - use your imagination and whatever you have on hand. If you’re not low carb, keep the potatoes! - 1.I roughly diced up 2 large rutabagas and sautéed for 7-8 in 1 tbsp avocado oil, paprika, garlic powder, and some sea salt. I peel by rutabaga using a peeler. . 2.In the same skillet, then added 1 package of @mightysparkfood turkey and bacon blend and seasoned with some more paprika, cumin, and garlic powder. Not necessary. Then started breaking up the meat with a wooden spatula to make sure it was cooking evenly. . 3.After about 5 minutes, to the same skillet added 2 chopped cloves of garlic, 1/2 medium onion, and 1 red bell pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes. . 4.Then I created some pockets and cracked in 2 large eggs and added about 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese. . 5.Put in the oven at 350F until the egg whites had firmed up. This takes about 10-12 minutes for me. Removed, then added some sliced jalapeños, fresh herbs, and some sliced avocado. You can add anything else on top . Super easy, and super satisfying... what would you add? . . . . #ketogenic#keto#ketodiet#lowcarb#ketosis#ketogenicdiet#lchf#ketolife#weightloss#ketolifestyle#ketofam#ketoweightloss#lowcarbhighfat#weightlossjourney#lowcarbdiet#ketotransformation#ketofood#ketoaf#ketorecipes#ketocommunity#fitness#intermittentfasting#healthy#healthyfood#ketones#diet#ketogeniclifestyle#health
😲6 MONTHS from NOW, what would YOU say to yourself??? This is what Jen said: “If I could go back and talk to the woman on the left, this is what I’d say to her: . - ⭐️ Girl, it’s not supposed to be this way. ⭐️ Your body is meant to feel amazing. ⭐️ It’s ok to INVEST in yourself. ⭐️ Self-care is not selfish. ⭐️ Getting older and having children does not mean that you’re meant to be permanently exhausted and sluggish. ⭐️ Taking time for yourself is not selfish. ⭐️ Taking care of yourself is not an option; it’s a PRIORITY if you want to be the best version of yourself for your family. If you want to be around long term for your family. ⭐️ You’re NOT living to your full potential. ⭐️ You should set goals for yourself. You’re CAPABLE of so much more. ⭐️ You don’t dream big enough. ⭐️ You were made for more than believing the lie that this is as good as it gets.” . - Sound familiar? This isn't just about the extra weight... the goal is to achieve a healthy body, mind, and finances. If you’re struggling in any of these areas in life, it doesn’t have to be that way!
