The Intermittent Fasting Weight Loss Formula by Robert Dave Johnston

This book is Volume 2 of 7 of the series, “How To Lose Weight Fast , Keep it Off & Renew The Mind, Body & Spirit Through Fasting, Smart Eating & Practical Spirituality.”

Intermittent fasting is becoming an increasingly-popular way to lose weight quickly without having to commit to long-term diets. By cutting out some foods from your diet and then practicing periods of fasting of just a few hours per week (for starters), it is possible to lose weight very quickly. A 4 hour fast 3 times per week can actually produce weight loss of 7-to-10 pounds per month (or more depending on your body makeup).

And this is just the beginning. In ‘The Intermittent Fasting Weight Loss Formula,’ the author presents a five-prong structure of intermittent fasting that can help you get started right away, even if you work full-time, have a family and follow a very hectic schedule. Each method of Intermittent Fasting is explained, and you will also learn how to combine them for a massive powerhouse of weight loss and body detoxification.

The author also will give you ‘moment-to-moment’ guidelines you can use to carry out an intermittent fast of any length. Intermittent fasting gives you the flexibility to “sneak in” times of fasting anytime during a day, week or month. Time is on your side! In addition, for those who may have eaten poorly for years, it is easier (at first) to complete a partial fast than it is to do an extended non-interrupted one. Little baby steps eventually add up to a mile.

Those are some of the reasons why this “alternating” method of fasting is growing in popularity. If you need to lose a lot of weight, or simply have those last 10-20 pounds to shed, this book will show you exactly how to accomplish it through the powerful and amazing discipline of intermittent fasting.
