Our Free Women’s Self Defense Workshop is fast approaching! Sorry guys this is for my girls only!!
Did you know that ANYONE can effectively learn how to defend themselves. We have a saying in our studios, “Will is Stronger than Skill!” Meaning that knowledge, proper technique and will to survive are far greater attributes than strength, speed or power. And when you learn to combine them all, you become a force to be reckoned with.
My Experience with Intermittent Fasting and the Ketogenics Diet
Posted: February 06, 2018
A student of mine recently asked me if I knew what Intermittent Fasting was and I said, "Of course I do I've been doing it for over 5 years now". It combines healthy eating and fasting everyday instead of doing one long fast a couple times a year. I find that the IF method helps build discipline in my daily routine, I do not get bloated and I sleep a lot better. Doing spinning kicks and teaching 5 classes a day, I need to feel at my best. When my head hits that pillow I'm out for the count within minutes. I feel completely AWESOME when I wake up, I'm currently on a 20/4 IF Routine plus or minus and hour on some days. I suggest starting at 16/8 then working up to 20/4. Men and Women do not have the same results.
Last Summer while on a relaxed Intermittent Fasting schedule 16/8, I jumped on the Ketogenics Diet to see what is was all about. I loved the fact that you can eat BACON, BACON, BACON. Did I mention BACON. On the Ketogenics Diet NO CARBS, Only FAT and Protein. I honesty enjoyed eating avocado, butter, bacon, and other fatty foods but the problem I ran into was preparation. Once the kids went back to school and running around with my 3 kids, the dojo and their activities I had no time to prep. I do miss the BACON however I tightened up a couple notches on the belt and jumped back on a tight IF schedule then the holidays came and I slacked off a little but we are all human so dont get upset, just get back on the ball and refocus. After the Holidays I jumped a quick fast for 72 hours and then back to a 20/4 IF schedule. We are all human just do your best and if you cheat once in a while its okay just get back on track.
