By Katie RizzoIn the first year of intermittent fasting, Katie Ritzero started going to a Mediterranean diet breakfast.
She got the idea after a friend and her mother said she was doing something they both knew was not healthy.
“It’s just something we had a hard time with as parents,” Ritzerow said.
“It’s not something you’re allowed to do for your own health, but I figured if you can get away with it, why not for your kid?”
My husband and I had been trying to get our kids into the healthy eating movement for a while, and we decided to go for it and see if we could help them understand it,” she added.”
When we started going through our son’s diet, it was like a big leap.
We’re really into nutrition and the whole ‘eating well’ thing.
We felt that he was just missing out on the whole healthy eating thing.
“A year later, Ritzerot’s son was a healthy toddler and he had never missed a meal.”
He’s been eating healthy and we’re like, ‘Oh my god, that’s so much better,'” Ritzerowitz said.
Since the first intermittent fasting meal, Rizzow and her husband have been able to stay on track.
They’re on a daily fasting regimen of 20 minutes of moderate exercise and eat a full meal with a few extras at the end of the day.”
We’re actually eating a whole food plan,” Rizzot said.”
So we’re not just eating pasta, which we never did before, we’re eating whole grains, vegetables, whole grains that are full of protein, vitamins, and minerals,” she said.
Ritzerotes daughter and husband are also on a similar diet.”
My son, I don’t know how I got this, but my husband, he’s been very happy, too,” Ritzo said.
