Family meal time is the glue that holds busy families together. We like to apply this same concept to Time-Restricted Fasting.
A family unit is stronger and a more supportive when everyone is on the same page. The benefits of getting the whole family involved when it comes to TRF is that it sets the same expectations and guidelines for the whole family.
Why not create a family team approach to TRF?
Learning the impact of the food you eat, or don't eat in this instance, is a great lesson for kids and a great way for parents to set a good example. Kids can begin to understand how food makes them feel which is an excellent way to tune into their body and mood. For those with younger kids perhaps the fasting element is better suited for the evening. Basically, everyone stops eating at a certain point to start the fasting window.
How to get the family involved?
Sit down and talk about it. Write a guideline for how you decide to do it as a family, pop a calendar on the fridge and tick off the days achieved. To make it more fun, why not set an end goal celebration?!
TRF aims to reset your body, metabolism and weight loss. From a family point of view, it’s also about overcoming a challenge and working as a team to create healthier bodies and minds.
