What is Intermittent Fasting?
It’s an eating schedule, using the 16/8 protocol. This is where you fast for 16 hours a day and eat for only 8 (typically breaking your “fast” at noon and stopping eating at 8 pm). This eating plan allows your body to tap into and use your excess fat for energy instead of using glucose aka sugar for energy. It stokes your metabolism to allow your body to turn to fat to burn even when you’re at rest. It also helps to remove food fixations and eliminates needless and wasted time spent counting calories.
What is Carb Cycling?
It’s an intentional adjustment of your carb intake each week. It does not mean you eat low carb every day. Depending on your workout for that day, you will have high carb days, low carb days, regular macro days and low macro days. Long term restriction of carbohydrates can damage your metabolism and mess up your hormones. Once this happens your weight loss stalls, your brain fog increases and cravings (especially for sugar) become unbearable. In the Fat Loss Jump Start we are not about dieting, but eating healthy, the right way, in proper portions.
What Supplements Do I Need?
You are not required to purchase any supplements from me or elsewhere. There is a recommended Supplement Guide included in the program, but know that consuming any supplements is completely optional.
Do I Need a Gym Membership?
Nope. All workouts can be done in the privacy of your own home, or at a gym facility, or both! It’s completely up to you.

This program will work, but you have to work the program. When followed exactly as directed, instructed and written, this program will garner you results.
What Are The Workouts Like?
They range from 10-35 minutes in length, depending on the day. Gone are long and exhaustive workouts, instead we focus on getting the workout done, with intensity, but removing the old mindset of “we must punish our bodies into shape”. These workouts are not designed to help you “make up” for poor eating habits or to invoke feelings of “getting revenge” on skipping a workout or meal. Included are two rest days; one is an active rest day where you’ll enjoy a hike, some yoga, foam rolling or a steam in the sauna and the other a complete rest day without any activity. The focus with the workouts is healing your body from the inside out, while also tapping into your excess fat stores for energy. You may be provided a new workout program each week to keep boredom at bay, but you’ll see familiar exercises within the workout programs.
