Intermittent Fasting What I Eat in a Day | No Special Diet

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day celebration yesterday. My day was glorious and full of lots of rest, which I greatly needed. 

I'm sharing another intermittent fasting what I eat in a day video with you by request. I do the 16:8 method of intermittent fasting, which means I fast for 16 hours (I don't snack after dinner), and have an 8 hour eating window. I love the freedom that comes from this structured way of eating. 

I like to film these videos on a whim to show you what I truly eat in a day without curating some spectacular menu for social media. This day found me at the end of the week when we were out of fruit and low on produce. This still gives you a realistic idea of what I typically eat in a day.

Nutrition Spotlight

Elaine Brisebois is a certified nutritionist and author of The Elegant Eating Handbook and I had the pleasure of asking her what her three best tips for women are regarding nutrition. I've had the pleasure of getting to know Elaine better through The Chic Society. Here is what Elaine had to share with The Daily Connoisseur audience:

1. Aim for diversity in your diet and center meals around minimally processed whole foods – which are rich in micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) and other health-protective compounds like phytochemicals and fiber. Make veggies the starring performers! 

 2. Focus on nourishing your body over depriving it. Find an eating approach that's both sustainable over the long term and gives you the results you want. Consider any "trade-offs" investments in your health rather than sacrifices. 

 3. Aim for progress, not perfection. When you expect "imperfect" eating days as part of the process, you won't use them as an excuse to quit, throw in the towel, or "begin again on Monday." You can always make a better choice at your next meal.

Thank you, Elaine, for sharing your wisdom with us! You can find Elaine at elainebrisebois.com and on Instagram @elainebrisebois

Comment of the Week

Cassaundra writes, "I haven’t even watched your full video yet. I’m about to hit play. However, I’ve been following you for years. I’ve always enjoyed occasionally watching your stay at home mom day in the life type of videos, and I’m not even sure which one started this whole thing exactly, but as of late I became enamored with your content. You inspired me to catch up on all of my laundry. You inspired me to try to convince my husband to get rid of our television set and replace all of our subscriptions such as Netflix, and Disney+ with only one subscription: audible! 😂 (pray for me with that as he is not 100% on board... YET!) You inspired me to wake up early in the morning, at 5 AM before my family and actually go for a hike, get ready in the morning for the day, make breakfast, set the table, and clean all day, WITH GRATITUDE! I watched your most recent chic assignment and picked up modern etiquette made easy by Myka Meier at my local library and read the entire book yesterday, in one day! I feel that over the past two days I have become a COMPLETELY different daughter, wife, mother and friend. I feel for the longest time I was allowing myself to subconsciously subdue to “lethargy” and the feeling of being “overwhelmed” when all along I was just procrastinating and distracted. You called out my culprits! I can not express enough how much you have helped me and I praise the Lord for leading you to create your videos here on YouTube and leading me to be completely inspired and transformed by them. Thank you a million times over. 😭❤️"

Cassaundra, wow! Thank you your kind comment which encourages me to continue. I appreciate you!

I hope you enjoyed today's video. If you are doing intermittent fasting, please let us know how it's going. What has your progress been? Thank you and see you next time.
