As a gift to myself, I joined Ciriaca's Intermittent Fasting Challenge. What an opportunity to receive daily coaching, guidance, motivation and encouragement!
To be able to be a part of a community to share experiences and exchange suggestions is invaluable. I received and had access to so much information to educate myself and to have a better understanding of intermittent fasting and how it can benefit my health and wellbeing.
I was worried about being able to commit and follow through, I wondered if I'd be hungry, however, the opposite was true. I learned to listen to my body's cues and to ask myself and recognize whether I was truly hungry or just supposed to be eating.
I appreciated that Ciriaca was on hand to guide and answer questions along the way. Having an external accountability partner and a private group was a huge part to be successful.
This was a great kickoff for me to a new decade of Redefining Aging. Thanks, Ciriaca!
Ciriaca Yolanda instructed me on the following keto principles:
Setting attainable goals and new eating techniques to obtain my goal;
Food substitutions & grocery shopping tips: and all aspects the keto lifestyle (including the principles of fasting & feasting).
Yolanda’s goal is not only to coach, motivate and inspire me, but also to give me a deep personal knowledge about the keto lifestyle.
She has shared delicious recipes which I have adopted.
Due to her gentle guidance, encouragement and follow-up, I am so pleased to say that I lost 29 pounds within 3 months.
Ciriaca Yolanda has really helped me understand and embrace the keto/low-carb low-sugar lifestyle. I turned to her after having plateaued on my weight loss journey. She was interested in learning what did and didn’t work for me in the past and gave awesome advice on how to transition to a keto lifestyle in a way that would work for me.
I have since lost more than 15 pounds by following much of the advice and guidance that Ciriaca Yolanda has provided. What I most appreciate about her approach is that it isn’t a one-size fits all approach. I love all of the substitute options and other resources she shares, like how to track macros, fast intermittently and identify low carb options.
I also like how real she is when it comes to allowing yourself a treat every now and then, but jumping back on it the next day. It has certainly made this lifestyle a realistic and sustainable one for me.
The weight loss has been great, but how I feel and my improvement in my health vitals has been phenomenal and life-changing.
