There are seven big mistakes people make when they start intermittent fasting. Today, I’m going to cover what they are and how to avoid them.

The biggest intermittent fasting mistakes:
1. Eating too much of the wrong foods when not fasting, like peanut butter, almond flour, and keto bars or desserts
• Consume organic Valencia peanut butter.
• Consume celery with your peanut butter.
• Consume other types of nuts.
• Include healthy, high-quality foods in your diet, like meats, eggs, fish, and vegetables.

2. Not doing keto and intermittent fasting together
• Doing keto and intermittent fasting together will make fasting easier and boost your results.

3. Doing low-result patterns of fasting
• Choose a pattern that includes one to two meals a day with no snacks between your meals.
• Try to go as long as you can before you have your first meal.
• Try to make your eating window only two to four hours and your fasting period at least 20.

4. Stuffing yourself
• Your body consumes your own fat when you’re not eating food.
• Don’t worry about how many calories you need to consume. Instead, just think about what you feel comfortable eating in your meal.

5. Not taking B vitamins and electrolytes
• Your body demands more B vitamins and electrolytes when you’re fasting.
• Get B vitamins from a natural source like nutritional yeast.
• Consume a high-quality electrolyte product with high amounts of potassium and no hidden maltodextrin.

6. Not doing the healthy version of the keto diet
• Avoid dirty keto and do Healthy Keto® instead.

7. Stopping if they plateau
• You may lose more weight at first because it’s water weight. After you lose water weight, your weight loss may slow, but you’re burning fat—this is normal.
• There are things you can do to speed up the process, like fasting longer, cutting your carbs lower, doing periodic prolonged fasting, exercising, sleeping longer, reducing stress, and taking berberine or cinnamon.
