November 22, 2019
“Having an ab crack or being fat, skinny or fit or curvy does not make you different as a person. Having it doesn’t change the way you are. It doesn’t define you.”
After YEARS of trying to lose weight on my belly (and believe me, it seemed impossible), I finally figured out how to get that coveted ab crack! Counting calories/going vegan/keto did not work for me, but these two secrets did!
In this episode Daisy talks about:
What is an ab crack
How intermittent fasting works
The adjustment from doing intermittent fasting
How high-intensity strength training works for her

5:30 - High-intensity Strength Training: best to do in the mornings and on a complete fast

Be mindful of how your workout is affecting you. Overdoing it is not healthy at all. Do plan rest days as well. Any activity is better than none at all. It is beneficial for making regular physical activity part of your lifestyle.
