If you are on the intermittent fasting train and were wondering how to break your fast when intermittent fasting...read on. I typically do a 16/8 fasting window where I'll fast for 16 hours and eat for 8 hours. However, when my eating window starts, I like to be a little strategic about what first goes into my body.
How To Break Your Fast When Intermittent Fasting
I have found, for me, the most effective way to break my fast when intermittent fasting is by consuming 1-2T of natural peanut butter (or any healthy fat) and 25g of protein. Eating these foods revs up my metabolism without spiking my insulin levels. It gets my body primed and ready to burn fat and not store fat away.
Try this simple trick if you are intermittent fasting and not having the results you want. The way you break your fast is almost as important as the fasting itself.
