Hi there, I’m Juliette Dryson and I created iFasters after struggling to find enough information online about intermittent fasting that I felt was relevant to women like me.
I’m a Physiotherapist with three Post Graduate qualifications of Health Science and I wrote a book on fasting called Intermittent Fasting for Women – How to Lose Weight and Keep it Off Without Dieting.
How Did I Get into Intermittent Fasting?
If you’re like me you’ve probably tried countless diets and ways to lose and maintain your weight, even though you know they’re probably bad for you. Sadly, in today’s society us women tend to favour our figure over our health.
I read a mind-boggling study recently that showed that more women would rather be run over by a truck than be fat! That’s just crazy. What are we thinking?
But the pressures of today’s society mean that our weight is just so important for our confidence and self-esteem. If we don’t feel good about our body we just don’t feel good about ourselves.
I’m a health professional and even I, once upon a time, would give up a healthy eating and exercise plan in favour of the next quick fix.
In today’s busy world, sometimes there is just no time to be on an eating plan all the time. And it can get sooooo boring. Not just for yourself but for the people around you.
It was during one of my many quests to find the next weight loss solution, that I found Intermittent Fasting in 2010.
Even though the science behind it (and trust me I researched the heck out of it) was solid, it was incredibly difficult for me at first, because as a chronic dieter I had created an obsession with food.
Through Intermittent Fasting I conquered that food obsession and endless yo-yo dieting So for me that was a bigger relief that just losing weight. It was sustainable and now I can actually enjoy eating food without feeling anxious about it.
I started to recommend Intermittent Fasting to my clients (in my role as an injury consultant) who were overweight and struggling to keep to any exercise programme because of their pain. They all had amazing results.
I started this website and created the ‘Eating Personality Types‘ so that people like me (Type C) can ease in to fasting slowly.
I’ve also learned so much more about the female body, what makes us tick and how and why we can store fat or have trouble losing fat through hormones and what we eat and I’ll be sharing everything I learn on this site.
I love to receive feedback from the site visitors and I would really appreciate you hitting those Facebook ‘Like’ buttons wherever you can.
