Intermittent Fasting: Beginner's Guide

Before starting any new health regimen, it's essential to consult with a healthcare professional, especially if you have any underlying health conditions. If intermittent fasting aligns with your goals, here are some tips to help make it a sustainable lifestyle choice:

  1. Start Slowly: Begin by gradually extending the fasting periods. Start with a 12-hour overnight fast and gradually increase the duration over time.

  2. Stay Hydrated and Curb Hunger: Add VivaStix to your morning routine, which contains electrolytes, appetite suppressing ingredients, and a small amount of caffeine, and drink plenty of water.

  3. Nourish Your Body: When eating, focus on consuming nutrient-dense, whole foods to ensure your body receives essential vitamins, minerals, and macronutrients.

  4. Don't Overeat During Eating Windows: A common pitfall when starting to intermittently fast is to overeat during the eating window. Try to start with a small amount of food when you first break your fast, then continue with regular size meals as the eating window progresses.

  5. Listen to Your Body: Pay attention to how you feel during fasting periods. If you experience any adverse effects or discomfort, adjust your fasting schedule accordingly. Many people find themselves getting dehydrated, having low energy, or being "hangry" when they start on a fasting routine. VivaStix are designed to counteract all three of these common symptoms.

  6. Combine with a Healthy Lifestyle: Intermittent fasting works best when combined with regular physical activity, adequate sleep, stress management, and a balanced diet.
