Eating (TRE)

TRE gives you a specific window of time during a 24-hour cycle in which you can eat. For those just getting started with fasting, this approach may be the easiest to implement into their lifestyle. By simply consuming reasonably sized portions during the eating window, weight loss and a variety of other health benefits can be achieved with minimal effort. Here are a few examples of how to fast for some common TRE diets.

Prolonged Fast (PF)

PROLONGED FAST (PF): Also known as periodic fasting, this approach calls for a fast that goes beyond 2 days (most often somewhere between 4 and 7 days). While shorter fasts can be successful firing up the metabolism for quick weight loss, the prolonged fast offers additional benefits that can be very appealing to those looking for benefits at the cellular level. Here’s an example of how to fast for a highly effective, prolonged fast.
