What Is Intermittent Fasting?

It is a pattern of eating where you restrict the hours that you eat. In my book, and around this site, we refer to this as “eating windows”. You open your eating window when you consume your first meal or snack of the day, and you close your eating window after your last calorie is consumed. There is no magic number of hours each person should remain in their eating window, some people have found that 8 hours work for them, for some it is 6 hours, and others will only eat one meal a day. There is more info on this below. But the gist of this lifestyle is that you are not restricting the types of food you eat, but instead the hours in which you eat.

I've lost about 30 pounds by literally interviewing over 1000 women who had been thin their entire lives and learn their secrets. They’ve never been on a diet! I asked them questions about what they did because I believe that people can be thin but still be in bondage to things like:

||||Food Rules

||||Excessively working out three times a day or more

||||Counting Calories

||||Meal prepping for the whole week

My mission is to teach other people to eat like someone who is naturally thin, and do it effortlessly.

Are you successful in so many other areas of your life but can’t seem to find success when it comes to sustainable weight loss and ending the bondage to food??

It can be difficult trying to find a plan to follow to lose weight AND keep the weight off.

I understand because I’ve been where you are and felt what you are feeling.


Are you successful in so many other areas of your life but can’t seem to find success when it comes to sustainable weight loss and ending the bondage to food??

I understand because I’ve been where you are and felt what you are feeling.

So what makes me an expert?

It's the lessons I learned from my interviews with the thin eaters. They taught me how to:

||||Free yourself from the bondage of food

||||Make weight loss and weight management are effortless

I believe that being in a stronghold to food just weighs you down in every other part of your life. It's almost like being an alcoholic….but with food.

You will learn the things that naturally thin people just do instinctively. I believe that maintaining a healthy weight is a skill, and it can be taught,  practiced, and mastered. If you're following what these thin eaters are doing, you will learn the basic principles of:

||||Eating when you're hungry

||||Stopping when you're full

||||Not depriving yourself.

Learn to follow the 5 principles that thin people naturally follow.

I am 100% against meal plans and calorie counting.  The Chantel Ray Way will never include meal planning or calorie counting because naturally thin eaters never meal plan. They decide what their body is craving, and they eat that!
