Discover your internal clock
Rapid Results™ shows you how to “nourish” your body for 12 hours, and then “rejuvenate” for the remaining 12 hours, also known as time-restricted feeding (TRF).
During the nourishing 12 hours, you’ll eat healthfully while staying physically active.
The rejuvenation period is when your body regroups, resets and regenerates after a busy day metabolizing your food and then using it to fuel your daily activities.
MORE THAN JUST WEIGHT LOSS
One remarkable consequence of allowing your body this 12-hour rejuvenation time is that your body fat, especially belly fat, can decrease.6,7
And it’s not just weight that’s improved. Scientists have also found that sticking to the 24-hour nourish-rejuvenation cycle not only preserves your muscle mass, but, with physical activity, may increase it. You’ll also activate fat burning and reduce swings in appetite.8 Sleep quality and energy may also be enhanced.
The 24-hour nourish-rejuvenation plan
Rapid Results™ is also associated with a decrease in the risk for dementia, along with enhanced mental alertness and mood.9 All of this is what happens when your body clocks work together as a well-coordinated team.
The plan works with your natural body clocks to provide a time period of nourishment when you need it and can burn the food fuel most effectively, and then a period of rejuvenation during which your body can rest and regroup.
Rise and Shine
The most natural 12-hour eating cycle begins in the morning and ends no later than 8PM. By adhering to this kind of schedule, you’ll want to reorganize your evening hours.
Take a Walk
Take a walk after dinner. Read or listen to a great book. Call a friend or family member and catch up. Take a bath and listen to music. Meditate or update your personal journal. Finish that puzzle.
Disconnect From Devices
Instead of spending late night hours watching TV and mindlessly snacking, how about making sure you focus on getting your optimal 7-8 hours of sleep?
Get Your Zzzzz’s
If you end dinner by 7PM, plan on going to bed no later than 11PM, then after 8 hours of sleep you’ve hit your 12-hours of rejuvenation time and it’s time for your first delicious meal of the day.
