The ‘switch’ to awaken your body’s ability to rejuvenate itself

  1. Sarah Mair says:

    Thanks Vesna but I’m confused.
    I thought that you were against fasting because it activated the stress response and increased cortisol. I thought that was why we needed to eat breakfast within 20 minutes of waking.
    Can you please explain.
    Many thanks,

      Hi Sarah, I still recommend eating breakfast within 20mins of rising, even during fasting. I’m still eating, just restricted. Fasting can only be done once adrenal fatigue/ burnout has been addressed so that blood glucose levels can remain stable. Intermittent fasting is best done with an early dinner, rather than missing breakfast, and has shown the best results for health. Hope that answers your questions xx

    When would you use ‘prolonged fasting’? And what determines the length of the fasting period?

    • vesna2 says:

      I like prolonged to kickstart healing, I’d use it for everyone except when someone is burnt-out/has chronic stress or adrenal fatigue, or heart problems, history of eating disorder etc – that needs to be addressed first. 4 days at a time, anything longer affects the metabolism in negative ways.

    what do you mean when you say i’m still eating breakfast after 20 minutes of rising?
    what do you eat for breakfast ?
    is that not breaking yr fast?

    How many hrs fasting eg 7pm to 7am? Still eat during the dat like we did on BBB?

    Hi Vesna and team,

    I’m still confused! I did BBB 2 years ago and I don’t think I have adrenal fatigue any more but life is definitely stressful. I think I’m better at handling it though. I’m interested in trying intermittent fasting – quite honestly – to lose a few kg. I did your advance weight loss course a year ago and I did lose the 3 kg I wanted to lose but I’ve put it back on again. In that program you suggest moving to IF as a maintenance but I didn’t ever do that. Now I’m looking to lose them again! I’m 47 and no health conditions but did have adrenal exhaustion quite bad (diagnosed by a naturopath with testing) 10 years ago. I’ve done a lot of work on myself since then. Is IF ok for me? I had read you previously recommended eating breakfast and having early dinner which I think would suit me but do I have to within 20 mins of waking? That would mean if I did a 16:8 eating window I would to eat dinner by 2pm. I still have to cook and feed my family too – husband and teenage sons. I would love your advice on whether or not this would work for me and if it’s ok to push your first meal to a couple of hours after you wake. Thank you 🙏
