How I “Hack” Open My IF Window


I’m still new to IF, at least compared to Carly.  But it’s not a lifestyle I’d change. So on the days I’m not quite ready to open my window, but know I need to, I’ve learned some hacks.  Food hacks that keep me full, energized and still allow me to eat more later in my window.  

Author's Note: Most people practicing Intermittent Fasting do not open their window just because it's time. If they're not hungry, they typically keep their eating window closed until they're hungry. 

I, on the other hand, am not only working on adjusting my window for a future extended vacation, but also, I take certain supplements and medications that HAVE to be taken at the same time each day with food. Plus, I know myself, and I will absolutely start snacking on bad things if I don't eat when my window is set to open. Therefore, opening my window at the same time is an absolute must for me personally.




I pair my IF with a low carb way of life, therefore, I’m a little more restricted than some. IF people do not have to do this, I just choose to.

Since today was one of those days, not really hungry, but need to get my window open while I can and on time, I had one my favorite “meals.”

Lono Life bone broth powder packs and Figgy Pops.  It’s simple, 8oz of hot water mixed with my bone broth packet and two Figgy Pops for dessert.  That is all.  It’s loaded with good protein, fiber and even good carbs.  The best part is that I’m fueled for the rest of the day and can actually enjoy eating later before my window closes.

I’ve provided a link below for both products.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Oh!  And it’s a great throw in your purse, travel snack, option as well!

I hope you enjoy!

I’ll be back soon!

Carly Everywhere I look I see people struggling with weight loss and unsure of what program to follow to lose weight. I see a lot of people convinced that they must count calories/macros/points to lose weight. When I tell them they can let that go and simply count time, they don’t trust me. People are terrified of letting go of calorie counting or points counting or otherwise trust that fat loss with IF is dif

Covid-19: A Message From A Front Line Health Care Worker

Hello friends, I hope this message finds you well.  Through out the recent weeks, and the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have been struggling on what to say.  I have been trying to keep a positive outlook, telling myself that we'll be okay. That everything will go back to normal eventually, but as we've seen, so much changes from day to day that it's hard to know what the future holds right now. It's scary. It can be overwhelming. We've never seen anything like this. Some of us are in major hotspots and some, thankfully, are in more sheltered pockets. The reality of the situation is that we are all affected. I am writing this from my home office, a place that I have spent much much more time in recently, especially in the wake of the governor of Colorado, Jared Polis' stay-at-home orders. Being that I am a member of the media, I have been deemed "essential." Like many of us, I have special documentation from Washington, D.C. that
