Intermittent Fasting | Your IF Questions Answered

After this blog post about how I do Intermittent Fasting (IF), I decided to do a Q&A and asked you guys to submit your questions on my Instagram (@amandalouisefit) I got some really great questions that I decided to answer in this week’s blog! Without further ado, let’s dive right into the questions! Question 1: I train a lot myself and I consider IF after reading so much about it!

Intermittent Fasting | How I Do It

I’ve been doing my own version of intermittent fasting for quite some time now (I would guess it’s been 1 1/2 years, maybe longer) and I feel like it’s a good time to share my diet approach with you here on the blog.

Fit February Week 4 | Progress Update, Diet & Workout Plan

Fit February is into its fourth and last week. That means it’s time for the third update! I have been losing weight steadily every week, but it’s been a bit slow. -100 g. the first week and -500 g. the second week. I’ve been working really hard the whole month, and I know what I’m doing is what I need to do to lose the weight. My body has been a bit stubborn in the initial weeks, but I didn’t want to cut calories to drastically or increase my training...
