Questions:

#1 - 13:42

Q: I have just completed my first couple of 24 hour fasts, and have been depending heavily on black coffee and unsweet tea to get me through those bouts with hunger! The only bad thing is that I struggle with adrenal fatigue, and I have heard that caffeine is harmful for me. Is this true? If so, do you have any recommendations for ways to wean myself off it? I get major headaches when I try not to drink it.

-Angel in New York

#2 - 16:03

Q: I am SOOOO tired lately! As soon as I wake up, all I want to do is go to bed! But I feel like I am getting enough sleep at night, I sleep 8-10 hours. One of my girlfriends mentioned that this could be a candida issue, another says it’s a thyroid issue, Google tells me its my liver or Epstein Bar Virus. How can I tell the difference when all of the symptoms are so similar?

-Donna in NC

#3 - 17:54

Q: For the past 6 mos or so, I have noticed that I get an insane spike of energy in the evening. At first, I thought this was related to my Intermittent Fasting, but I started googling, and I stumbled upon info about Adrenal Fatigue. It was crazy, all of the other symptoms applied to me! It stinks to feel this way, but it is nice to have somewhat of a diagnosis. The thing I still can’t figure out is why I am getting my energy burst in the evening, and not earlier in the day when I am more rested?

-Denise in Texas

#4 - 20:12

Q: Since I read your book, I do my best to stick to the 80/20 Principle, and do allow myself all of my favorite foods that I enjoy! But recently, my doctor determined that I am dealing with adrenal fatigue and I am wondering if adjusting my diet will help some. Are there certain foods I should avoid, and others I should be making sure to eat plenty of? I am desperate to feel better, and willing to tweak my 80/20 if that will help!

-Valerie in Columbia

#5: 22:26

Q: After struggling to conceive for several years, I am finally pregnant! I am so thankful, but became a little discouraged when I learned that it is possible I could pass my adrenal fatigue down to my child. Is this true, and is there any way to prevent it?

-Karen in Tampa

#6 - 24:32

Q: I have struggled with Adrenal Fatigue for the past year or so and the more I learn about it, I see that stress is a MAJOR factor in how I am feeling. I don’t want to take anxiety medicine, and quitting my job isn’t an option- do you have any suggestions for stress management?

-Kate in Arizona

#7 - 25:38

Q: I am excited to learn more about adrenal fatigue on your upcoming show- as someone who doesn’t know much about it, what are the most common symptoms that we should be aware of?

-Jennifer in Louisiana

#8 - 27:10

Q: My favorite thing about this podcast is that you are always introducing me to natural ways that I can cure my body. Which is good, because my Doctor won’t acknowledge Adrenal Fatigue as a real disorder, and says there is nothing he can do for me! What are some ways that I can combat it naturally? Are there any herbs or supplements that I can take?

-Ashton in Charlottesville

#9 - 29:54

Q: I have only ever met women who deal with adrenal fatigue, but I am finding out that there are men who struggle with it as well. Would you say that it is more prevalent in women? I am familiar with how it manifests in a woman, are the symptoms going to be different for men? What should men watch out for?

-Melanie in Virginia Beach

Answering YOUR Questions at Our Local Radio Station w/Nick!

June 21, 2018

Happy Thursday and welcome back to another episode of Waist Away: The Intermittent Fasting Podcast! Usually, we record at the Chantel Ray Headquarters, but today we took a little trip to one of our local radio stations! Of course, we are still going to be answering YOUR questions, but Nick is going to act as an MC for this episode! We have lots to get through, so let's get started! 

Watch the Video Version: https://youtu.be/2E14zlOdArY

QUESTIONS:

Jenny Illinois - 2:11

I started toying around with intermittent fasting a few weeks ago. I bought Chantel's book which I read on vacation with my family. We traveled overseas, I didn’t practice IF instead I at a decent sized breakfast. Generally, I wasn’t hungry for lunch and I snacked somedays. Most days I didn’t eat again until I was hungry, which was usually around supper time. What I'm getting at is I didn’t eat “healthy” but I only at when I was hungry. I came home to my surprise and LOST over 4 pounds. Since I've been home I've been following a 6-hour window and in 1 week I've seen no change. I might have actually gained weight. It's frustrating, but I'm hoping it will whoosh away. Any suggestions or am I doing something wrong?

 

Kat Mobile - 5:40

I'm brand new to IF and I started 2 weeks ago eating in an 8-hour window, but I've wanted to bring it down to a smaller window. Do you have any tips for the best way that I can bring my window down?

 

Angela Northern Virginia - 7:02

I loved your podcast you did with Jenn Vann Horne and watching your adventure at Whole Foods. You talked a lot about the benefits of cilantro, but I cant take the taste because it tastes like soup. Do you have any suggestions on how I should prepare it so I can actually enjoy it??

 

Jessica Boston - 8:40

Like a lot of people, I grew up hearing that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I workout early and I love breakfast food! Is there anything wrong with me eating breakfast and lunch but just skipping dinner? 

 

Kevin - 11:08

I've been hearing about ketosis and I really want to get into the fat burning state when my body is eating fast for fuel like you talk about. I know you don't recommend the keto diet, but I am so intrigued by the benefits and I'm tempted to give it a try. Can I get into ketosis and become a fat burner without following the Keto diet.

QUESTIONS-

Question 1- 0:40:07 Before I started IF, I was addicted to sugar! Now, when I skip the sugar in my coffee or tea in the morning before I break my fast at 12pm I get really tired and have headaches. I’ve only been really committed for about a week or two, so would you recommend I just keep pushing through? -Rhian from Las Vegas, Nevada

Questions 2- 8:56 I can’t stand PLAIN water! I heard your podcast that you talked about all of the different acceptable drinks during a fast and found it really helpful. There is one drink that you didn’t address, which is club soda. I love some fizz, and feel like it would be okay since there aren’t any calories, or flavors. What do you think? -Andrea in Tennessee

A: You are absolutely right, Unflavored and unsweetened are the two big things you are looking for and club soda fits the bill! Have as MUCH as you like! The only teeny tiny disclaimer is that I have heard a few people say that the bubbles make them hungry. So just be aware of this one thing, and drink away! Some people say the opposite that it makes them less hungry. Do what works for you.

Question 3- 10:20 I LOVE your podcast and all the time you spend addressing the thyroid and hormonal issues. I suffer with PCOS and will go MONTHS without a period. But the best thing happened when I started Intermittent Fasting- my period became monthly and regular. I am so thankful for IF and for this podcast. What is the science behind it? -Michelle in Richmond

A: I suffer from PCOS and have experienced the same regularity since I began IF. It’s great isn’t it! From what I’ve researched, PCOS is really connected to Insulin Resistance which we know IF is great for stabilizing! There’s been quite a few studies on PCOS and fasting and it almost ALWAYS has a positive effect. Here are some other benefits for it: 1) Cellular and Hormone Regeneration Studies show that when you practice intermittent fasting, important things happen to your cells and hormones: Your body’s cells begin a repair and waste removal process. Blood levels of human growth hormone (HGH) increase, which aids in fat burning and muscle gain. It also helps to regulate body fluids, bone growth, sugar and fat metabolism, and possibly heart function. Basically, HGH makes us fit and feel better. 2) Lower Insulin When you fast, blood levels of insulin drop dramatically, initiating fat burning. It may also lower your risk of type II diabetes since a recent study shows that fasting blood sugar has been reduced by 3-6%, while fasting insulin has been reduced by 20-31%. Before you get too excited, you should know that this data may not be reflective of both genders. A recent study on women showed that blood sugar control actually worsened after a 22-day long intermittent fasting regimen. 3) Weight Loss Limiting the timeframe in which you can eat will likely reduce the number of calories that you take in. Coupled with the decrease in insulin levels and the increase in human growth hormone, that can lead to weight loss by boosting your metabolism. Less calories + faster metabolism = weight loss. 4) Fight Inflammation and Oxidative Stress Oxidative stress is an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of the body to detoxify their harmful effects. This stress has been linked in studies to aging and many chronic diseases. IF works to eliminate this stress. In addition, intermittent fasting may reduce inflammation (a common core symptom in women with PCOS. So if you are listening to this and struggling with PCOS, keep on track with the Intermittent Fasting, I truly believe it is the best thing you can do for your body!

Question 4- 12:10 I have been trying REALLY hard to stick to the 80/20 and eat as many whole foods as possible! I would love to buy only organic fruits and veggies but my budget doesn’t always allow that. Can I get the same benefits from canned and frozen veggies and save some money? -Erin in Nashville

A: This is a great question and one we’ve never received before! The very best way you can eat your veggies is from your backyard or garden! Even when you buy them from the store, there’s a long process from the time they are harvested until the time you eat them. The longer the plant is away from the harvesting, they are losing nutrients. BUT, if they are picked and IMMEDIATELY processed and frozen, you are getting the benefit of the peak of freshness when you eat them as opposed to the ones that have taken a while to get to the store. Canning they say is good for certain things like tomatoes because the heat releases lycopene which is an antioxidant that is really good for fighting disease. This really varies for all different fruits and vegetables. When it comes to cans, just look for ones that have BPA free lining. Try not to overthink it, and try to make the best choices you can within your budget. No matter how you eat your vegetables, they are going to be healthier for you than a pack of ramen noodles or something else that is super processed LOL

Question 5- 17:34 Q: Since I have been fasting, I am constantly getting cramps in my feet and legs- is this normal? -Peter in Georgia

A: I have heard this from a lot of people! First off, dehydration can be a big culprit. Make sure you are drinking your water! A lot of time this also relates back to a salt, magnesium and potassium deficiency. I did an episode a while back where we went deep in some great sources for potassium, and surprisingly bananas aren’t at the top of the list! But go back and listen to that and I would recommend taking potassium and magnesium supplements, I experienced this when I started fasting and this helped me almost immediately.

Question 6- 18:34 Q: In Chantel’s book, she talks about eating whole foods, like fruits and veggies, really natural stuff. However, a lot of people say we shouldn’t be eating fruits because of the sugar and carbs, ultimately the fructose. I am worried it will keep me out of that ketosis or fat burning state. -April in NY

A: Fructose and Glucose are simple sugars and sucrose is a combo. Fruits are not pure fructose, they are more of a combo of fructose and glucose. The REFINED sugars are the ones that we want to keep an eye on. The studies involving fat gain and inflammation are coming from processed, refined sugars. The fruit also has water, fiber, lots of nutrients! Now it could cause gas and bloating, and you could have different reactions from different fruits. But as long as you aren’t going crazy with the fruit…remember we aren’t overeating on ANYTHING! Even if it’s fruit or something “healthy” and we are listening to what our body is really craving.

Question 7- 21:30 Q: I love the Podcast, and I love Intermittent Fasting! I have averaged 1-2 lbs a week for about 3 months. The problem is, my family isn’t a fan! What would you say to family members who are just constantly saying it’s not good for you? I’m having my family saying they are doubtful and it’s not sustainable or healthy? They are concerned about my metabolism being ruined, and say that I am not eating enough. What do you say to the haters? -Jade in Norfolk

A: People talk about your blood sugar “dropping” all the time to me and say fasting is bad for the blood sugar. People say crazy things like you’ll go hypoglycemic and die- that is ridiculous. If you measure their blood sugar it will go down a bit then stay in a normal range. Your body will produce some of the sugar and will reduce the need for sugar. Your muscles will burn fat, ketone bodies will provide energy for your brain. You need some glucose but you can get that from your body fat if you put glycerol which is the backbone of the fat molecule, when you don’t eat your body cuts off those fatty acids which turn into glucose. Since most of your body isn’t using glucose- you don’t need that much. You may hear the brain needs 140g of carbs every day- that is the most ridiculous thing ever! This is basic physiology. If you don’t eat, your body breaks down glycogen, provides glucose. When you eat, you store energy, when you don’t eat, your body pulls it out. Think about it, if you go to surgery, you don’t eat, if coloscopy, fasting bloodwork- you don’t eat! Ppl fast all the time! Do any of them go hypoglycemic or have a seizure or lose brain function? No, they feel pretty normal. People have been fasting for years, since the Bible times! It is the most natural form of “diet” there is

Question 8- 26:21 Q: Will drinking BCAA after my 6 am workout break my fast? If so, when should I have it? -Tina in Texas

Branched-chain amino acids (bcaa) are one of the latest raves in the fitness industry. These are supplements designed to supply your body with essential amino acids because your body cannot make them. BCAAs are designed to assist with your fitness efforts by preserving muscle mass. Most branched-chained amino acids (bcaa) contain the 3 amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. And the answer is yes, they do break your fast. Well BCAAs are amino acids and amino acids are macronutrients as amino acids make up what we call protein. So, by definition if you take BCAAs supplements either in the tablet form or in the powder form, you are technically eating. By popping BCAA (branched chain amino acids) supplement you are ingesting food but a very small amount. Don’t forget that BCAAs have a calorie value. They are not dummy pills or powder. BCAAs have macronutrient value as well as calorific value which would make them technically food. Just to support the viewpoint that you will be breaking your intermittent fasting when you take BCAAs, each gram of BCAA you take has a calorie content of 6 Calories. 1 gm of BCAA = 6 Cal What this means is if you take 20 gm of BCAA in the morning, you are indeed consuming 120 Calories without realizing you have. If you take 10 gm of BCAA supplement tablet or powder, you will be consuming 60 Calories. What this means is BCAA (branched chain amino acid) supplements represent food in their own right. Taking BCCA supplement means you are “eating”. That by extension means taking BCAA during intermittent fasting is ending your fast.

Question 9- 29:21 Q: The other day I got into a fight with my husband about the stupidest thing! I was so embarrassed that I freaked out afterwards, and then I was thinking about it and noticed a pattern that when I do my longer fasts, I tend to get super angry, usually right around hours 20-24, and I take it out on the ones I love! I am not just talking about being irritable or edgy, I get straight up angry! Is there anyone out there who also struggles with this, and what is the cause? I would greatly appreciate any help, and so would my husband LOL! -Anonymous

A: So this anger you are talking about is pretty common for people who are fasting, esp those who are new to it. It all boils down to the fight or flight mode, when your blood glucose is low because you don’t eat your brain sees the lack of glucose as a threat to its safety. When this happens your brain does a glucose regulatory counter response to counter the low levels of blood glucose which causes your adrenaline to rise! This is good for energy, but bad if you are sensitive to the element of anger. How emotional or sensitive you are to adrenaline will determine how you react when you are fasting. Another reason you can get extra angry when you are fasting is a common brain chemical called neuropeptide Y. This is a natural brain chemical that releases to the brain when you are fasting and it stimulates voracious feeding behaviors by activating stimuli in the brain, including one called the Y receptor. They do two things: try to control hunger but also controls anger and aggression. So people with high levels of neuropeptide y will show high levels of aggression. Another crazy thing to think about with this aggression and ferocious feeling is Back in caveman times, you had to have that aggression to eat your meal and compete against people who were trying to eat bigger portions of the same animal that everyone was trying to eat at the same time. You had to have that anger, impulse and aggression to protect your food! But back then you could hit someone in the club and you may not get in trouble, but things have changed and we can’t be hitting people over the head anymore. The good news is that this will adjust over time! And the more that you understand what’s going on and can recognize the process you will be able to get it under control. Take a minute to cool down and recognize that it’s your inner cave woman causing you grief, not your husband!

Question 10- 33:01 I have been hearing a lot about fasting bringing you into Ketosis, and all the different ways we can track our ketone levels. I bought some strips and was wondering if you think this is the best way to test my levels? Also wondering what the ideal Ketone levels are to have? -Wanda in Orlando

A: Everyone responds to ketosis a little differently. Some people are heavy fat oxidizers, which means they get into ketosis easy and ketone levels get in the high range easily. Some people have to work harder. . It doesn’t mean you aren’t getting the benefits of ketosis, it just means you have less flowing around in the blood at a given time. You can test with a urine strip, breath meter, or blood meter. Blood meter is most accurate bc you are pulling straight from blood. Urine strips are only effective when you first start because they measure excess ketones. So if your body becomes efficient at utilizing ketones you aren’t gonna register on a urine strip anymore. They are really good at the beginning because your body is creating so many its kinda inefficient. It allows us to understand as you get deeper into ketosis you wont create as many ketone bodies as you did in the beginning. When you use a blood ketone meter, you get a read between 0 and 3- some ppl say they stay at 0.1. If you are below a 0.5 you are barely in ketosis, you are creating ketone bodies and they are registering in the blood. You just aren’t in optimal range. This could be because your carbs are too high, or your fats aren’t high enough. If your fats aren’t high enough you don’t have the abilities to create the ketones you want to. You will also find that your ketone levels are lower in the morning. This is because the natural rise of blood sugar in the morning causes ketone readings to be lower. Your body creates more glucose in the morning whether its from muscles, carbs or proteins you eat. If you tested after exercise you will find lower ketones bc the body has burnt through the fat and starts breaking down protein in your body- your body is recruiting different sources to create sugar. Another reason- There is a good chance your protein intake is too high. If you have too much protein your body takes the amino acids and converts them through gluconeogenesis and into a sugar. I see a lot of people who cut protein down and see their ketones go up. IT’s important to measure throughout the day. The optimal range is from 1-3, 1-1.5 is most optimal. You are producing enough ketone levels to get the result you want but not too much. If you start having too much that might mean you aren’t active enough or your body isn’t utilizing the ketones correctly. You are probably not giving your body the chance to use stored body fat. When your body is using only stored body fat as preferred ketone source, your ketone bodies will be in the 1 range. But if you increase your fat intake a lot you will get deeper into ketosis. You aren’t gonna see a 3 or 4 just from fasting because it doesn’t accelerate that fast with just body fat. You will only get there if you are consuming a lot of fat or in a deep deep starvation mode. Or ketoacidosis if you are a type 1 diabetic. If you have too high of ketone levels while you are in a nutritional state of ketosis, it probably means your calories are too high. You can stand to back off the fat to give your body the chance to use the stored body fat. When you are in ketosis you should get your body used to using fat as a source of fuel. You do that by priming it with lots of dietary fat. That gets your ketone levels nice and high, then you temporarily deprive yourself of dietary fats so your body has no choice but to seek out and crave fat from your body tissue. That’s when you start burning fat and having cosmetic results with ketosis. That happens at that 1 range. So don’t get discouraged if you are at 0.5 or 0.7 or 1, you are fine, you are still in the nutritional state of ketosis but you don’t get the crazy cognitive benefits til 1.5. What can you do to get your numbers up? First, increase your fats. Before you think about decreasing carbs, focus on fats. Back off the exercise a bit, your body is using ketones which means its optimized for endurance work. If you are doing a lot of HIIT training your body will have no choice but to create glucose to fuel those activities. Its getting used to creating glucose therefore breaking down protein and creating sugar somehow. Not to say you are going to waste away, but you are going to get yourself kicked out of ketosis or in a lower state of ketosis. The key is to Measure whenever possible so you have something to compare your result to. Today, we are going to do a LIVE ON AIR, testing of my Ketone Levels AND Blood Glucose Levels. I am going to link both of these charts, for Blood Glucose and Ketone Levels in the Show Notes so that you can easily access them.

Question 11- 53:05 Hi, was just wondering if herbal teas or green tea were aloud while in fasting mode, along with your black coffee and black normal tea? Thank you. -Jenny

A: Absolutely! We highly recommend herbal and green teas, of course, you are making sure that they have no calories and are unsweetened. One of our favorites is Passion Tea that is the Starbucks Tazo brand. It has no calories or caffeine and is naturally sweet and just so good!

The Psychology Behind Intermittent Fasting and Binge Eating w/ Author and Dr. Glenn Livingston!

May 24, 2018

Hey guys! Welcome back to another episode of Waist Away: The Chantel Ray Way Podcast! Today, Chantel is talking to Dr. Glenn Livingston, Author of "Never Binge Again". Usually, we talk more about the health aspect of IF, but in today's show, we jump into more of the psychological side! Sit back and enjoy!

YouTube Version: https://youtu.be/yJYcYVDX5Bk

A Few Things We Mentioned: 

http://www.trendweight.com

https://bit.ly/2xfAHnI

http://www.chantelrayway.com/emotionaleater

Question 1 - 6:09

Q: I am a massive snacker! I love to snack and once I start eating, I have a really hard time stopping eating. That’s why I do really well if I open my window at night and not during the day, because once I start eating, I just want to keep on eating… but then at night I feel like I over eat because I waited too long to eat and I am hangry! Which do you think is better? 

 

-Jill in Arizona 

 A: One of the big things I talk about in my book is that Intermittent Fasting alone is not enough to make a true difference. You also have to follow all of the other principles that I learned from Thin Eaters. One of the big ones is to only eat when you are physically hungry. Not bored, not stressed, not mentally hungry, which is what usually leads to a lot of snacking. 

 So I think the first thing here is to try to study your snacking habits. Are you snacking in the evening because you are watching TV or bored? What are some other activities you can do, like paint your nails, or give someone a phone call? Are you snacking in the evening because you had a long stressful day at work? Try a bubble bath or a Yoga class.  

 I am not saying that all snacking is off limits, but you will not see the results you want if you are eating when you are not physically hungry.  

 Question 2 - 10:00

Q: I feel like I am doing fantastic with my weight loss, and this podcast motivates me every day. I have noticed that I am losing a lot of weight in my arms and legs, but my stomach still has a lot of fat in it. I really don’t need to lose any more weight in my arms and legs- my belly has always been my trouble area. Are there any exercises or tricks you recommend to target this? 

-Annabelle in NC 

A: This is a great question, and I am with you Annabelle, I wish there was a quick fix exercise for belly fat! You are going to see 70% of your results from diet and only 30% from exercise. And these are conservative numbers…some people say that up to 90% of your results come from nutrition, and only 10% exercise. A tight core will help you burn more fat while you exercise, but the bottom line is that your diet is going to be key.  

You didn’t mention what your eating window is, but if you’re stalling out, I always recommend taking a look at your eating window and seeing if it’s too large. Next, you want to consider what you are eating in your eating window. Are you sticking to 80/20?

 

Question 3 - 12:10

Q: I am getting discouraged because I feel like I am taking two steps forward and one step back. I feel like I’m losing like you know 2 pounds and then I’m gaining a pound and then I’m losing 3 pounds and then gaining 2 pounds and just constantly gaining and then  losing and then I am gaining.  It averages out to be about a pound a week that I am losing, but the up and down is so frustrating. And yes, I am weighing myself at the same time every day. LOL. Is there anything I should do differently? 

-Katherine in Tampa 

 It is near impossible to eat enough in a day or two that would cause you to gain several pounds, so usually the increase in the scale number is due to water. 

There are so many factors that come into consideration for weight gain, eating, drinking, peeing, pooping, exercise….they can all impact your body’s water composition and then your weight.  Also, high carb and high salt foods can cause water retention and reduce poundage. Weight gain as a result of water fluctuation should normalize in a day or two, which is why you are noticing that your weight goes back down. 

The good news for you is that while you are going up and down, you are noticing a downward trend and have lost a lb each week. That’s something to celebrate!  

So try not to get too focused on the scale, and weigh yourself on the scale once a week at the same time of day. 

 Question 4 - 19:20

 Q: I have been doing Intermittent Fasting successfully for about 3 weeks, but now I am having trouble sticking in my window and I am craving all kinds of stuff. Any tips for me? I feel like it should be getting easier and not harder! 

 -Erica in Norfolk 

 A: Congratulations on starting your journey! The good news about Intermittent Fasting is that it gets easier in time, just like most things. You didn’t mention what your eating window is, but usually when I see people struggling at the beginning, they have started with too small of an eating window. 

 I compare fasting to running. If you’ve never ran before, you definitely shouldn’t wake up tomorrow and attempt a marathon. You’d get hurt, and you probably would never want to run again! 

 Fasting is the same, if you have never fasted before, make sure you are starting out with an 8 hour window. As that becomes easier, or more manageable, reduce it to a 7 hour window, then 6. Don’t come out of the gate with a big 24 hour powe fast. That’s a recipe for burnout! 

Once your body is used to that ketosis that comes from fasting, you will notice that some of the cravings go away. However, make sure that when you are in your eating window, you ARE eating the things you crave so you are satisfied. The whole point of this plan is to not deprive yourself of the foods you enjoy. Remember the 80/20 Principle- just make sure 80% of what you’re eating is whole, healthy foods, and 20% can be whatever else.  

Hang in there!! Getting started is always the hardest part! 

 Question 5- 24:54

 Q: Do you use Ashwagandha? Is so, does it actually work? I heard it speeds up the metabolism and helps in fat burning. 

-Susan in Maiden, NC 

A: **Not sure if you use this, I am assuming you do. Here is what I found about it** 

Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb. Adaptogens are a unique class of healing plants: They help balance, restore and protect the body. 

A lot of people use it as an anti anxiety or anti depressant, and some people use it to help naturally regulate their thyroid.  

So, you asked specifically about weight loss and fat burning. If you are having a hard time losing weight because of your stress or thyroid issues- yes this will help! 

It can lower cortisol levels by 28%, hike the BMR by raising T4 output, and bolster immunity. Rich in iron, it boosts RBC count and circulation, fights inflammation, and gives you energy! All of these things will help you with your weight loss. 

If you decide to take it, it’s simple! You can just crush up leaves and put them in your water.  

 Question 6 - 27:00

Q: Hi, I am so glad I found your podcast it has helped me so much.  I have not listen to all your podcast and maybe you have answer some my questions. Feel free to refer me to them.  
I have been doing intermittent fasting for a while on and off (2014).  I  tried to get back to it soon after I stopped breastfeeding  my son and  for some reason its been hard (1year 1/2). I have recommitted myself to it, the past 3 weeks.  I really want to close my window of eating to 5 hours to reach my goal of loosing 20 lbs.  My biggest challenge is my inconsistent schedule. I have 4 kids (ages2-8). I work part time helping my husband in his business, I don't have set hours.   A lot of times is  easy for me to justify myself to eat earlier than my window of time  because I won't get a chance  due to unexpected events etc. Then I find eating  later and more than I should because I want to sit and have dinner with my family. There is times I don't eat dinner and I will just sit with them.  I used to eat from 11 -6 in part because I felt hungry  or justify  to eat because I exercised. I been working on my thoughts and keeping away from the kitchen, that has helped me to eat later.  I now tried to eat from 1-6pm.  
1) Any tips and suggestions that could help to stick to my window of eating  on a busy day or in general?. 
  2)How can I  work on my thoughts ( so that I am not eating because I exercise or  out of stress, anger etc?   
I been lifting  weights  (body pump) and doing cardio on a fasted state for several months. I usually don't have a problem but lately I been feeling not as strong or with less energy. I know what I eat can affect me my proficiency.  What are some foods you would recommend eating? I am on a budget, I tried to eat beans, sweet potatoes eggs, salads  smoothies, chicken.  I really don't have time to make two different meals one for me and another for my kids.  
Your help would be greatly appreciated. You  have re-inspired me to do IF. I  have lost   3 pounds the past two weeks.  Thank you 

- Alejandra in NC 

A: Thank you so much for your questions. It sounds like Being a mom and running a business with your husband has your hands full and I am so proud that you are actively making the choice to improve your health and lifestyle! 

For your first question, I would recommend to you something that I call a binge saver. This is something that you keep on hand as you are about to open your eating window that will keep you from binging out. An example of this is something high protein, like some almonds, celery with peanut butter, etc. Something SMALL! But when you get that hangry feeling, you’ll eat this binge saver just to tie you over until it’s time for your big meal. Without eating that binge saver, you will find yourself ravenous when you sit down to eat with your family and you will probably want to eat anything and everything! 

As for what you are referring to as your thoughts, it sounds like you, like so many of us, can be an emotional eater. I did a whole podcast about this with a friend of mine who is a therapist, I definitely recommend you go back and listen to that! Also, we created a free online quiz you can access at chantelrwayway.com/emotionaleater . It will help you identify what causes you to eat, and will provide you with some helpful tactics to take control of your emotions! 

As for recommendations for food, I put together what I call my 80/20 Recipe Collection and it is available at chantelrayway.com for only $4.99. In my book I talk about eating 80% healthy, whole foods, and 20% of whatever you crave. So in my recipe collection, the majority of the recipes fall under that 80% category, but I like to say that they are so good, they taste like they are in that 20%! And then I have some decadent 20% recipes. I think you will find that most of the recipes in there are pretty affordable. There is one that I LOVE called Crack Slaw, it is so cheap and easy, and you can feed your whole family for less than $10! 

 Question 7 - 37:00

Q: I have always heard that you should try to weigh yourself often so you should try to keep your weights consistent and hold yourself accountable. Lately I’ve been binge listening to all of your podcast over and over and it really helps me. I noticed several different opinions on the scale- one guy said that I should throw it out the window and not worry about it! But I’ve heard you say that we need to weigh ourselves to keep us in check. So what’s the deal- should I toss the scale or should I weigh myself every once in a while. And if so, do you have a scale you recommend? 

-Jenna in Vermont 

A: A little bit of both! I completely agree that the scale can be misleading. Like we discussed earlier, your water weight, your period, your poop and pee, your exercise can all affect your weigh in and can really discourage you. So you definitely don’t want to obsess over it. That being said, I do believe you want to track your progress- so yes, weigh yourself about once a week, at the same time, wearing the same thing (usually naked). Be consistent, but give yourself grace if it’s the week before your period, or you’ve been doing a lot of weightlifting. I always always remind people to only weigh yourself when you wake up feeling thin. If you’re bloated, don’t even jump on that thing! 

I recently purchased the Nokia Body Cardio Scale and I love it! Not only does it measure your weight, It also measures your muscle and bone mass, your water, your BMI, your standing heart rate! And it syncs with an app on your phone. I highly recommend! 

Question 8 - 41:20

Q: I have currently lost 14 pounds doing all of the principles in the Chantel Ray Way, but I didn’t work out at all. I really want to start working out, so I joined Orange Theory and started doing some heavy lifting at the YMCA. I love the feeling I get from working out, but it has really stalled my weight loss for a couple weeks. Do you think this is because I am working out, or is it unrelated, and do you think I need to switch up something with my eating?  

-Barbara in Charleston 

A: This is one of the most common questions that we receive! A lot of people will start with their diet and then start working out once they are feeling lighter, with more energy! 99.9% of the time, they will go from losing a pound or two every week to a stall. And yes this is completely normal! Your body is shifting and changing and building muscle- all reasons for this fluctuation or stall. The best advice I can give you is DON’T STOP! It sounds like you are getting a great mix of cardio and weight training which is awesome! The more muscle you have, the more fat you will burn. In the meantime, don’t obsess over the scale. If you really want to track your progress, take your measurements! You will be SHOCKED how much your measurements can change while your weight remains the same. Keep up the great work!
