Note: Reshape Physical Therapy and Wellness evolved into Weight Loss for Health, and finally Zivli. How to Lose Weight After 50 was our first course that eventually grew into Zivli. Some old blog posts or resources mentioned in this episode may have been removed. 

Watch this video and learn how to start intermittent fasting for weight loss. I review the 10 most common mistakes I see beginners make when they start using intermittent fasting to lose weight. Done right, intermittent fasting can be a powerful weight loss and wellness tool. Done wrong, and you’ll be tempted to throw in the towel and say it just “wasn’t for you.”

Aside from losing weight, remember the other myriad of benefits that come from fasting like improved mental clarity and focus, more energy, and improved cellular repair just to name a few! Intermittent fasting is definitely worth learning how to do right and incorporate into a healthy lifestyle.
