Ok, here we go for the last time… I was never in a rush to lose weight after my boys were born but then again, we lived in the city and I only had 10 lbs to lose really. This time around, I’m 15-20 lbs heavier than my pre-pandemic/pre-pregnancy weight and well, I’m ready to not be so I’ll be joining my next FASTer Way to Fat Loss round which starts March 1st!
“Tell me about your fat loss program!”
I get a lot of this question in my DMs so here is the deal.
FWTFL is a program that turns your body from being a sugar burner into a professional fat burner. That’s the gist. During 6 weeks, I’ll be your coach and teach your the principles and practices that help you do this. These include intermittent fasting, carb cycling, macro tracking, strength training and hiit workouts. We intentionally do specific workouts on days depending on our macro cycle. During the course of the 6 weeks, I coach you and teach you how to do these things!
After the 6 weeks, the hope is that you see progress you love, learn a lifestyle you want to maintain and fall in love with our workouts and community for their results and support. It is not a quick fix program. The results are sustainable and long term. If you want a Whole30, this is not it. We eat our treats every single week. If you eat something that isn’t so great, we move on! There is not start over. We focus on progress over perfection.
Ok, so you sign up and then I email you to welcome you! Yay! We have an accountability group on Facebook but you can complete the entire program without using it of course using just our really amazing app.
When you sign up, here is what you’ll get:
🚀Cutting-edge nutrition strategies to teach you everything you need to know about eating the right foods at the right time
🚀Short-but-effective workouts for every level of fitness, including low-impact modifications for each move (perfect for newly postpartum moms)
🚀Easy-to-follow (daily) meal plans, shopping lists, and recipes that will simplify healthy eating
🚀The coaching, community, and accountability you need to see the results you want!
🚀Plus, our easy to use app that includes everything you need
I think our workouts are the best on the internets. Yes, I love my Peloton but for results, I trust our all-star trainers to create programming that is consistent and easy to follow for success. You’ll never miss a muscle group and the workouts are consistently changing so you continue to see results!
But I love my Peloton…
So yes, YOU CAN STILL USE YOUR PELOTON! I love using my bike on HIIT days as well as active recovery with a fun groove ride. Let’s be honest, with the pandemic and baby, I don’t move my body much so even a little 30 minute groove ride isn’t much compared to my activity levels pre-pandemic!
What about Orange Theory (or other workout program)?
Yep. You can continue to do other workouts if you want. I’ll work with you to make sure, you’re doing the right workouts each day for maximum success BUT I do wish you’ll give ours a try because I really do think they are better than what is currently out there. It’s like having a personal trainer, we’re telling you what to do each day to see results! Picking and choosing from large On Demand libraries are fun but the instructor doesn’t know what you did yesterday and they aren’t going to tell you what to do tomorrow!
Is it safe to try intermittent fasting while breastfeeding aka nursing?
In my opinion and experience, yes! Here’s why.
I also shared my own story about breastfeeding and fasting here from 6 months postpartum.
Do you have to follow the meal plan exact?
Nope! The meal plans are optional. We have a meat eating and vegan plan you can use for inspiration or follow. Everyone will need to modify to hit their own individual needs.
Is this a low calorie or restrictive diet?
NOPE! Most of my clients eat more than ever and exercise less and see incredible results!
We kick things off March 1st to lose fat, prevent disease and gain back your energy! You can get more details and sign up here!
I first joined the FASTer Way as a client in January of 2019, 6 months postpartum. I totally changed my relationship with food and exercise. My milk supply was not effected, I exercised less, I ate more of the foods I loved and yet, my clothes began to fit better!!! I also loved how IF gave me back time in the morning, a typically stressful hour AND greater attention span. A favorite benefit of IF for me is the laser like focus I get before breaking my fast.
As someone who has ADD and doesn’t take meds, this was a welcome benefit, I did NOT expect!
Ok, so you’re interested but you’re wondering if you’ll really have the time and be able commit to this program, right???
It’s so easy to talk to yourself out of it. You don’t have time. You can find equipment for your new home gym. You get bored doing the same exercises every day.
That’s why the FASTer Way has developed 30-minute workouts designed to work with our nutrition plan that also work with your short window of opportunity to exercise. The result? Your body turns into a fat burning machine!
You get to choose between at-home, gym, and low impact workouts. You make that decision based on your lifestyle and needs.
And the best part? I’ll be here to guide you every step of the way!
What are you waiting for? Sign up today and get immediate access to our workouts and meal plans!

Here is another Before and After from one of my clients…
Here is a recent testimonial from my last round in January:
I lost a total of 6.5 inches and 12 lbs over the 6 weeks. I also have a friend who has equipment to measure body fat and I lost 1.5 %. I have really loved the FWTFL program because it doesn’t feel like a program. It feels healthy and easy to follow without feeling deprived. I’ve loved all of the workouts too! The biggest win for me was that I was able to remember progress over perfection and get right back on track with the next meal when I went off plan. Before I would have completely derailed and ate a bunch of crap for weeks. I’ve also really loved the community support, I think it’s made a big difference in my success! Thank you so much!!-January 2021 new client
Here is another testinominal from a client in my November round of 2020:
This is mind blowing to me because I was pretty skeptical, and had such a hard time getting away from the WeightWatchers mindset and attitude toward food. But I followed the program pretty religiously, not perfectly but got the 5 workouts in each week, and about 80% stuck to the macros and fasting window.
I lost 5 lbs (which would have disappointed me 6 weeks ago and I would have thought this didn’t work) and 14 INCHES TOTAL! With 4 being at the belly button measurement! I am thrilled. This is so sustainable and I’m really happy to have gotten involved at the end of the year before the holidays all start. It fits so easily into my lifestyle and I do not miss 1.5-2hr cardio sessions. My Peloton rides are better/stronger than they’ve ever been, riding less and not being a slave to the bike. And I love lifting weights and feel challenged each week. Thank you so much!-November 2020 new client
