Sportfasting is not a diet, it is a lifestyle
It makes a long term change to your body’s metabolism and doesn’t have the yo-yoing effect of regular diets. Your special Sportfasting coach puts the programme together for you and supervises you every step of the way. During the first three days you cut down on food and adjust your nutrition. You then continue with three days of juice fasting after which you gradually build up your nutrition in the last three or four days. During the programme you exercise between 20 to 30 minutes each day at a level determined by your coach. You will know when you have achieved your goal when you make the switch to burning fat instead of sugar. Your new lifestyle has begun.
In primitive days people had to hunt for food and there were times of plenty but also of scarcity. In times of scarcity our bodies are forced to burn fat. Nowadays, we, in the western world, live in a time of abundance and our bodies burn sugars instead of fat. Thus the need to consume sugars for energy increases and we crave sugars. If the extra sugars we consume are not converted into energy they are stored in our fat reserves where they accumulate with the well-known adverse effects.
Sportfasting activates the primitive mechanism in your metabolism. Your muscles no longer burn sugars but start to burn fat. During the periods of exercise your muscles are forced to attack your sugar reserves as they switch to the fat-burning mode. This is known as the ‘metabolic switch’. Once the body has got used to burning fat, the fat is better assimilated. Endurance and stamina are improved and the body no longer craves sugars. You consume far fewer sugars after completing a Sportfasting programme!

Is Sportfasting right for me?
Challenging and tough
The Sportfasting programme can only be done under the guidance of a qualified Sportfasting coach. This ensures it is carried out correctly and optimal results can be achieved.
The programme is effective and efficient, but tough! You need to be committed and motivated otherwise you won’t succeed. Before you can begin, your coach has to assess whether it would be responsible for you to do so. Your coach then explains how the programme works, plans a training schedule and explains the protocol for the supplements. Together you decide when it would be best for you to start, and your journey to a fitter, heathier and slimmer self can begin
