Perhaps you’ve finally decided to get on the Science Based Six Pack intermittent fasting plan in 2018, but you're struggling to keep your fast going one day. Let's imagine a situation that may arise that could halt your 2018 weight loss goals early. Imagine you’ve only got a few hours to go before it’s time to break your fast and you’re starving. Maybe all your coworkers are heading out to lunch, or maybe it’s been a long day and you’re ready to eat. Don’t give up and break your fast so easily! Here are some recommendations for things you can do instead of breaking your fast early.
Find a distraction! If you’re at work, take a short walk (even if it’s just around the office) or watch a funny YouTube video. If you’re not at work, run an errand or enjoy a 20 minute episode of your favorite show. Do anything to get your mind off of your stomach! After this reset activity, you can tackle whatever is next in your day without reaching for an unneeded snack.
Stay hydrated! If you’re feeling hungry while following the Science Based Six Pack plan, chances are you might actually be thirsty. Grab a cup of black coffee or plain tea, but resist the urge to add extra calories with milk or sugar. You could also enjoy a glass of fruit infused or calorie free carbonated water like LaCroix. Keep those things in a special place so you don’t have to reach past a bag of chips to grab them.
Stay motivated! Remind yourself of why you started the Science Based Six Pack intermittent fasting program in the first place. Keep a sticky note with an inspirational quote or your goal weight somewhere you can see it. Use a picture of your family or your next vacation as your computer background to help you remember why you’re doing this. Have a partner that is either fasting with you or willing to help and send them a text message. They can give you some encouragement or help kick your butt back into gear and stick to the Science Based Six Pack system.
Now that you've joined the Science Based Six Pack program you can rest assured you've made a great choice for your health in 2018. Don’t break your fast and lose sight of the end goal!
