In this podcast I had the pleasure to sit down with Diddi Brown, who had an incredible transformation and life-changing experience with the help of Intermittent Fasting. She lays out an intermittent fasting plan for women that she thinks is the most optimal. We’ll get to that here shortly. First, a little background on Diddi and her journey with intermittent fasting.
How Did You Get Started With Intermittent Fasting?
About a year ago, Diddi stumbled upon a personal trainer on Instagram. She was shocked to see the crazy diet of his. It was filled with pop tarts and other “cheat” foods.
She ended up hiring the trainer but after a while, it was too expensive to continue working with him.
Although, he did point her in the right direction with helpful tips and gave her an intermittent fasting plan for women based on the Lean Gains method from Martin Berkhan.
However, She tried it and failed.
Diddi felt horrible the entire time and even suffered from some hormonal imbalances.
She thought fasting was only for guys.
But in reality, she was not doing intermittent fasting correctly! That’s what was causing the problem. You see, intermittent fasting for women is completely different.
Why Did Fasting Not Work At First?
Intermittent fasting for women is a topic I get asked about a lot. For women, succeeding with intermittent fasting comes down to a couple things.
The following is an intermittent fasting plan for women I would not follow!
Diddi explained a few things she was doing that were causing a lot of problems.
First of all, she was not using the proper calorie deficit; it was way too low.
On top of that, she was following brutal workouts almost every day of the week!
She was also using a crazy strict feeding window. If 9 o’clock rolled around and she was busy, she would not eat until her next feeding window, leaving her with sometimes less than 1,000 calories that day.
This is why I stress the importance of simply pushing your first meal back 6 or 7 hours and then having the flexibility to finish eating on YOUR schedule, making fasting effortless.
Basically, Diddi was starving herself and trudging through intense workouts, which is exactly what was causing all the issues for her.
Intermittent Fasting For women Results
Back in July, her friend recommended she check out Kinobody and how Greg approached fasting and training.
She almost said no, but my advice was starting to make sense.
There was still a struggle going on. Being a mom of two children, life is always busy and she was trying her best to stick to her routine of fasted cardio in the morning and weight training in the evening. She did this almost every day!
Diddi began caring about her health and fitness for the sake of being here longer for her kids, but this wasn’t what she wanted; fitness was starting to take more than give.
She had to unlearn everything she thought she knew about getting in great shape.
One of my articles, The Intermittent Fasting Guide, truly resonated with her and things finally started to make sense!
After her very first week of applying what I talked about, she was already down 2.5 pounds with a half inch off her waist. She also felt more energetic and had better mental clarity from fasting.
Now, Diddi only trains 3 days per week (no more), and gets the majority of her cardio from walking… and actually looks forward to her workouts.
Intermittent fasting for women diet and advice
The adjustment period when first trying intermittent fasting may be a bit difficult, but approaching it with an open mind and actually following through with it is absolutely life changing.
But you actually need to try it and see how it works for you.
The best thing of all is that Diddi no longer feels the cravings she always got when that time of the month rolls around. She is in complete control of herself and diet.
She now understands that you do not need to make yourself feel guilty about eating certain foods or forcing yourself to go to cardio after. That is straight punishment!
Understanding how to incorporate foods you enjoy into your diet while still leaning down is what’s going to keep you consistent in the long run to your goals.
The Best Intermittent Fasting PLan for Women
Diddi first began with the Aggressive Fat Loss Program.
Before starting my programs, the weight was coming off, but she soon got burnt out. It wasn’t until she started implementing my protocols that she pushed past all the troubles she was having.
Overall, she made a tremendous transformation from 180 lbs down to around 127 lbs!
She also uses the Goddess Toning Program and loves it! The workouts are quick, but very effective, making it perfect to still have time with her kids.
She also enjoys the fact that my programs are not all about fitness, but becoming a well rounded person in all aspects of life.
The use of affirmations and becoming more present in the moment make your journey effortless.
Walking, Eckhart Tolle & How Being Present Can Transform Your Life (a past video of mine on Youtube) is another video that helped Diddi break the ties of racing to arrive at the end goal and realizing to enjoy each step of the way.
This Is About More Than Just Fitness
With the help of a proper intermittent fasting plan for women, Diddi underwent an astonishing transformation. But it is also much deeper than that.
It was truly life changing after applying the protocols here at Kinobody. And not only was her life effected, but she was able to teach her kids more about diet and nutrition, saving them from childhood obesity and putting them on a path to a strong, healthy life.
She is so grateful for the advice Kinobody has and is proud to be an inspiration for women to show it is possible for them, too.
