Intermittent fasting has emerged as an evidence-based revolution in health and wellness. And even if you usually eat meat and fish, why not do a plant-based intermittent fasting reset? You can start at any time and lose weight while still eating the foods you love. In the popular 16:8 method, you eat 2 to 3 times over 8 hours, then fast for 16 hours (which, of course, includes time spent asleep). The result can be astounding: weight loss, a stronger immune system, increased longevity and so much more. Let Petra Bracht, General Practitioner and Naturopath, and recipe developer Mira Flatt guide you through the transition to a fasting lifestyle, with medically supported advice and over 80 satisfying vegan recipes including ideas for lunch, such as Rainbow Summer Rolls, protein-packed dinners, like Smoked Tofu Potato Salad or Chili sin Carne and healthy desserts like Chocolate Cardamom Truffles.
Live healthier - and longer - with this complete vegan guide to intermittent fasting.
