Is Intermittent Fasting The Perfect Diet?

Is Intermittent Fasting The Perfect Diet?


it’s intermittent fasting the perfect
diet plan nope perfection is a myth okay there is no such thing as the
perfect diet because let’s imagine what would the perfect diet be I would
imagine it would be effortless and immediate like you could just wake up
tomorrow at the perfect ideal weight and you could eat whatever you want but the
thing is that doesn’t exist so what we’re left with is trying to find the
good enough plan right and so the thing is there are so many different plans to
pick from really probably every single plan works as long as you stick with it
and that’s the key for me is finding the thing that you’re gonna stick with over
the long haul even when you find a plan that works for you you’re gonna be
constantly faced with the temptation to switch your plan and go for that other
plan that you see somebody else doing that’s giving them better faster results
I still just struggle with this even though I’ve lost 65 pounds I’ve kept it
off and I’m maintaining it and I’m even still losing but I still get tempted
I’ll see somebody else who dropped like eight pounds in a week and it’s like
whoa what are they doing and I’ll look at it but I don’t switch my plan and
here’s why back at the end of 2015 I made a decision I’m only gonna do those
things eating wise that I can foresee sticking
with for the rest of my life so whenever any other plan comes along and I see
somebody having success I ask myself could I do that plan for the rest of my
life and if the answer is no then I just don’t even look at that plan anymore and
so far I haven’t seen any other plans that I can foresee myself sticking with
over the long term so in case you’re looking for the right plan and you’re
trying to figure out you’re good enough plan I’ll walk you through how I picked
my plan so I sat down and I asked myself and this is a Tim Ferriss question it’s
what would this look like if it were easy so what would weight loss look like
if it were easy like what what would my diet look like
and so I tried to be very honest with myself and very realistic and not too
optimistic so here here are some things that I came up with first I knew that I
loved big portions like I love to sit down to a big meal small little meals
like six small meals a day it just leaves me feeling deprived I never feel
like I really ate a lot so I just don’t like that plan another thing that I
thought man that’d be really easy would be if I could just eat anything I wanted
like no restrictions on the actual foods like no having to buy low fat or low
carb or anything like that just regular food no restrictions I wanted to be able
to eat the same food my family was eating at night and the last thing I
decided was I was okay with slower progress if it meant that I could keep
it off and so after I had those things all in my mind I kind of looked around
and I saw intermittent fasting for me that checked out the boxes I could eat
whatever I wanted all I had to limit was the times that I ate not what I eat but
for you it might be totally different sit down and really be honest with
yourself what are the ideal things like you really want to be able to what eat
these certain things or you know you’re okay with you know small meals or you’re
okay with all meat or all vegetable or whatever and really sit down and find
that ideal thing that looks really easy to you and think in terms of good enough
okay just good enough for you and remember there’s no perfect plan also
when you’re sitting down and you’re writing out your perfect plan it’s also
helpful to look back if you’ve lost weight in the past been successful with
it but then put it back on ask yourself why is it that you stopped eating that
way before is it you know was it too hard to stick with over the long term
and then try not to make those same mistakes again so I’m curious to know
what kind of plans have you done in the past that you have really been able to
stick with over the long term thanks for watching be sure to LIKE comment and
