Cruise Control Plan
It is not all about weight loss. This is also about getting rid of the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Intermittent fasting is scientifically proven to extend your life span. A lot of people hear the word fasting and they lose their mind… Cruise Control teaches ways to cheat the fast with healthy fats so that you never feel hungry but yet always satisfied, giving you the will power to be able to hang out till it is time for lunch. Then comes dinner, and after that in the late hours of the night and the morning is where the self-control takes place.
We mentioned fat above, and I’m sure some of you have started to run for the hills hearing that word, but let’s reverse for a second and plant a seed of knowledge about what fats are good and which ones you should steer clear of… Corn oil, soy bean oils and canola oil are inflammatory. They are disease-causing and they age that. We have to distinguish between those fats, and the ones that are actually good for us. We need to use cutting edge healthy fats such as coconut oil, avocado oil, and even grass-fed butters. These fats turn off that hunger switch. And if you’re not hungry you are not going to eat. You’re going to be able to enjoy life, and be able to get up and work out in the morning. When working out while fasting your body is able to burn stored visceral fats. It is a process called autophagy, which is basically your body’s way of house cleaning.
The Dreaded Scale
Now we know stepping on the scale is almost like a chore. You don’t want to see the number that pops up incase it is even just a pound more than you were hoping. Feeling the need to weigh yourself every day is an “in your head” task. However Jorge says that you need to start moving forward in your progress with your heart. Weighing in everyday can become routine, but reroute and cut back to once a week. Suggested is a weekly Monday weigh in as soon as you wake up in the morning. At the end of the day the number on the scale isn’t as important as the way you feel inside. That comes first.
Cheating the Fast
We know a cheat day always comes into play sometime during any diet, but now we don’t even have to worry about that since we found a new loophole! Cheating the fast is the new cheat day. As long as the food you intake outside of that 8 hour window doesn’t raise your insulin levels, the fast is not broken. There are three important macros; fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Now your first guess of what you can eat outside of the fasting hours and get away with it might be the protein, however it is the fats! (Healthy ones of course!) Fat does not raise your insulin levels giving you a little longer to indulge in a late night snack with the chocolate mousse recipe in Jorge’s book The Cruise Control Diet!
