Rewire the Body | 1,200 calorie work days

Updated: Apr 29, 2019

Ok, so I have had some response to my last blog- Calories in; Calories Out. Mostly everyone is just asking how to achieve a 1200 calorie daily diet during a work week, so I have included an example of a days complete diet and workout schedule below, including the times for the intermittent fasting option.

For the fasting, I try to do the 10:14, which means all of your eating and drinking happens in an 10 hour time frame, and you fast for 14 hours. The fast time can include sleep time. During fast it is important that nothing but water is consumed; for those who are very serious about fasting, this includes sport/ flavored water beverages, tea, and coffee. I have read that most people who do intermittent fasting will still drink cucumber water or hot lemon water as a natural flavor option. I still drink the infused water and black coffee. When I am no longer pregnant I will be moving to the 8:16. (8 hours to eat all of your meals with 16 hours of fasting) The most popular intermittent fasting app I have found was recommended by Joe Rogan in one of the recent podcasts I was listening to. Its called Zero the fasting tracker. Its wonderful if you have trouble remembering when you started and stopped your fast.

Regardless, this is an example of a typical daily routine for me during the work week:
