DAY 13: Saturday, September 26th

I was so excited to get responses from some of you today telling me about how long you were able to fast for! Since the first week I have been getting emails and texts about the benefits you are seeing already! I LOVE hearing from you and hearing about your results, so PLEASE email me and share:) I'm waiting!

  1. Write down everything you eat throughout the day. Mark Sisson recommends using a great website called to calculate your daily nutrition: protein, carbs, fat, and calories. This will give you a great idea of how much you are intaking in a day and what you will need to eat more/less of. If you are trying to lose weight, its recommended to have a daily carb intake of 50-100 grams/day.
  2. Lastly, complete a push-up tabata workout. Remember, this is 8 sets of 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest. Count your total repetitions. If you need to keep your knees on the ground that is fine, but be sure to maintain good posture: flat back, hands to the side of shoulders, and ensure your chest hits the ground first {if you cannot make it that low, then use a pillow beneath your chest.}
Meal/Snack Ideas:

Breakfast- french omelette with chives

  • 4 eggs
  • 1Tbs fresh chives, diced thinly
  • 1Tbs olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
Heat olive oil in a medium sized pan on medium-low heat. Ensure olive oil gets up on the sides of pan. Beat eggs vigorously with all ingredients until batter has a smooth consistency. Pour in heated pan. Take spatula and gently scrape the middle of the omelette from side to side making a plus sign shape every few minutes. This will make little clumps throughout the omelette. Continue until the omelette is still wet on top with many chunks/swirls of the eggs and sides are easy to lift form pan. Loosen sides of omelette and fold in half. Cook for another minute and then serve on plate. Sprinkle more salt and pepper if desired. Garnish with more chives!

Lunch- egg salad
