You might have seen and heard the daunting looking words, ‘intermittent fasting’ floating around your news feeds and at your weekly coffee dates recently. But never fear, SuperFastDiet is here to tell you they are absolutely not scary. In fact if you didn’t know by now – we love them. Those words changed our lives forever, and they can for you too!
Intermittent fasting are the two words that helped us create this fabulous and fun way of life that is SuperFastDiet a few years ago, allowing us to inspire and help thousands of women (and men) lose hundreds of kilos and get their lives back! Check out our incredible before and afters for some inspiring proof in the pudding. Speaking of pudding – one of our fave things about intermittent fasting is that you can actually eat pudding… I know! What?! We’ll explain later.
Here is a guide on our top tips to get started intermittent fasting, or as we like to call it – part-time dieting. Check them out!
What does ‘intermittent fasting’ mean and involve?
Intermittent fasting is our saving grace when it comes to losing weight and feeling great. The scientifically backed weight loss strategy involves assigning a certain number of calories to a certain period of time, or abstaining from eating for a certain period of time in your day. You can read about the science and the health benefits, by clicking the links!
Here at SuperFastDiet, we offer three equally successful methods allowing you to pick and choose for what suits you the best. Each method has provided so many of our beautiful members with unreal results! The three methods we have are the 2-day method, 3-day method or part-day method.
The 2-day method involves fasting for two days on restricted calories, 3-day involves fasting for three days a week on restricted calories (but not AS restricted as the 2-day) and part-day involves eating for only a certain part of day. Don’t worry – your hours of precious beauty sleep can absolutely be counted as fasting hours. So, often skipping breakfast and starting to eat at midday is a very popular way to do it!
And you want to know our favourite part of intermittent fasting? You can still be the social butterfly that you are! Yep – wine and cheese night with the girls is ABSOLUTELY still possible… in fact we encourage it. So, remember that pudding we talked about… you can definitely fit that in too! Not having to be deprived is essential to keeping the intermittent fasting lifestyle alive and well. You can eat what you want within the calorie bracket. Tempting right?

Do some basic research!
Once you’ve joined, researching the three fasting methods we offer and deciding upon which is best suited to your lifestyle is crucial! Don’t worry if you try one and you just can’t seem to crack it. Trial and error is always great, so don’t feel disheartened! That is why there is three… restart, and just try another one. That is the beauty of options right? Many people try 2-day and find it that little bit too restricting, and then jump to 3-day to allow for a few more calories! Too easy!!
Do a cupboard clean out! This is a great way to realise that you have just too many choccy biscuit options in the cupboard, ready to pounce at you when that temptation is really not needed whilst your fasting! Donate your goodies to local food banks the goodies. Then, go for a good food shop for all the gorgeous yummy and nutritious foods perfect for your fast. You can find out our amazing suggestions for fast-day foods within our program! Pro tip though – never go grocery shopping on an empty stomach, as you might find a few foods in your trolley that were definitely not on your list! How did that cake get in there?
Plan & Prep!
Plan and prepare! Don’t be scared off by having to plan and prep the food for your fasting days. This will save you time and brain power on the day when you might suddenly jump to ‘oh I’ll just get Uber eats’ or ‘I’ll just have the kids leftovers’. Have ready a few go-to fast day meals and snacks in a list. Knowing the types of foods you can have and having them ready to go is such a great tool to ensuring you stick to your goals! On a Sunday, roast up a bunch of scrumptious, colourful veg for the week’s lunches or prep some turkey mince for dinner each night! It is as easy as that. Trust us… you’ll love us for it and so will your weeknight self too!
Just give it a go!
You really have nothing to lose. Actually, you may surprise yourself with how much easier intermittent fasting is then it sounds! We have had so many of our most successful SuperFasters say these words, with so many like the amazing Trish losing 44kg. She said about SuperFastDiet, “it has completely changed my life… I’m so happy”. The calorie allowance is generally much more food than you think.
So what are you waiting for!? Give it a go! Join us now to see why we love intermittent fasting and why we want to share it with you.
