🙌 Meet Gunnar!
Weight loss is the most well-known benefit of intermittent fasting. However, Simple user Gunnar has only lost one pound — but he’s thrilled with his results anyway.
Gunnar is a 60-year-old fitness and nutrition coach. Or, as he calls himself, “a relentless fitness person.” He started practicing fasting four years ago and is loving his results.
Fasting and Exercise
After incorporating IF into his daily routine, Gunnar noticed that his body was metabolizing stored fat and running more efficiently.
“I feel greater control over my nutrition and crispness with my fitness in particular. I also enjoy the simplicity of eating plentiful in the 8h window, and equally, going light during the 16h fast period.”
Nutrition and Workout Plan
Gunnar pays great attention to his nutrition and prefers larger meals to snacking. He focuses on plant-based food like vegetables, fruits, beans, and grains, as well as lean proteins and eggs.
Usually, Gunnar does cardio in a fasted state in the morning and strength training during his eating window.
“Don't be a slave to ritual. It is okay to be flexible with IF protocols!”
