In honor of the upcoming 6 Week Summer Intermittent Fasting Challenge, I'm sharing one of the community member's top tips for success.
If you haven't already met her in the private Facebook group or in my YouTube interview with her, meet Jeannette!
Jeannette has been following the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle for over a year and has not only achieved her wellness goal -- she's even maintained her results for a year!
"I turned 57 this past March and I have never felt better. This June 2022 will be a year that I have kept my weight off without any effort. I started IF end of August 2020, reached my goal weight June 2021. I Started at 167 and today I go from 120 to 123 ish. I have so much energy and finally weight training was a game changer, I never thought that at my age I could start seeing some muscles."
Scroll down for Jeannette's top 10 tips that you can use throughout the upcoming Summer Intermittent Fasting Challenge!!
1. "I set small goals of 14:8 then added 16:8."
"It was beneficial for me to ease into everything because it took the pressure off making too many changes at once."

2. "Get everything you need for your first week and plan your detox week."
Reviewing the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle programs before diving into your journey can help to set you up for success. This easy step can simplify your experience and make your wellness journey enjoyable!

3. "I added walking for 10 to 20 minutes, it was important to add movement especially on Detox week."
Walking and daily movement are highly encouraged in the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle to support gut health, improved energy levels and increased fat burning. You can even add in the included 3 week workout plan within the Bundle for additional perks!
4. "Educate yourself on everything IF."
When it comes to your wellness journey, knowledge truly is power. But you don't have to be a biochemist to get educated on Intermittent Fasting and nutrition. I've boiled down the key important science-backed details to aid you in your journey within the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle. You can even find over 400 videos to aid in your journey with my YouTube channel.
5. "Make sure you drink enough water and add some electrolytes, it helps with headaches."
This is a very simple, yet often overlooked step! Don't forget about those electrolytes!
6. "I had my favorite herbal tea, lemon water or Spindrift sparkling water for after dinner if I needed a little something."
Having your favorite drinks that don't break a fast on hand can help create a new evening habit that's supportive of your wellness goals.
7. "Keep it simple, plan your meals for the week and write it down."
You don't need to prep all of your meals. But having an idea of what you'll be eating during the week and getting the groceries for those meals can help provide clarity and eliminate confusion.
8. "Make one or two of Autumn's recipes a week, it keeps things fresh and interesting. My family loved everything."
If you hate your food, you won't eat it! And if you eat the same thing every day, you run the risk of food fatigue, which can lead to snacking on foods that won't support your goals. I've recently created a brand new 6 Week Summer Meal Plan with new recipes and tips to provide even more variety to your meals!

9. "Sleep and rest."
Don't underestimate the power of a good nights sleep! This is when the majority of body recovery occurs, making it a crucial step in any wellness journey.
10. "Stay connected on Facebook when you can because it was tremendously helpful."
Having a group of like-minded people by your side throughout the journey can make a big difference during your wellness journey. Sharing your experience with those who have "been there" or those who are on the same journey can help provide additional insight, tips and inspiration. Scrolling through the private AEN Facebook Group and seeing everyone's meal posts, updates and progress photos can be the extra dose of motivation you might have needed for that day!
