Publisher's Summary

Kayla Cox was a frustrated mom of three, who weighed 222 pounds when she discovered intermittent fasting. She eventually lost over 80 pounds using this method of eating, but she had mixed results at first. She finally realized her big mistake: she was making it too complicated. She did not need to count calories, restrict carbs, or even limit her portion sizes. She found the best results when she made her plan simple and easy. When she started to practice intermittent fasting six days a week, walk six miles a day, and take a cheat day on Sunday, she found she could lose weight easily and consistently. 

She's kept off the weight with what feels like very little effort, and has found she loves intermittent fasting as a way of life. She's even started a YouTube channel, which now has over 29,000 subscribers, in order to tell others about the benefits she's had with intermittent fasting. She wrote
this book to give an in-depth look at the weight loss journey she went on, including the struggles she had, the mistakes she made, and the process she used to lose the weight. 

The Laid Back Guide to Intermittent Fasting will give you all the tips, tricks, and lessons she's learned on her journey to easy and permanent weight loss.

OMAD? Listen to this.

I love the simplicity of this book. She doesn’t get into the science, but she does refer you to books that do. She talks about being a B+ student rather than perfection. A little cream in your coffee is not going to kill the fast. A cheat day that is mandatory every Sunday even if there was a cheat event earlier that week, is a must. Progress is slow steady and stays the course. It took a long time to get fat it’ll take less time by fasting to get thin. Read this book.

Relatable

Kayla brings a different perspective to intermittent fasting- make it as easy as possible. She also made this approach of intermittent fasting her own.. and that’s one thing I learned from her- make whatever plan you choose work for you. If I had any criticisms it would be that she read the book a bit too fast for my preference. Listen to her on YouTube- six miles to supper- if you are on the fence about getting the book.

great book

loved this book, definitely is helping me get back on track with OMAD and IF, I took a lot of notes and she answered a lot of questions that I just couldnt seem to find anywhere else. for example being a woman I struggled with hunger during a certain time of the month I couldnt seem to get past that and it always made me fall off the wagon but with her tips on how to deal with that I know I can move forward. That was one thing a lot of books on IF and Omad that always left parts like that out. would definitely recomend.

A+ Strategies for Intermittent Fasting Success

I read Gin Stephen's "Delay Don't Deny" and joined her FB group but felt constantly frustrated. Maybe I have a problem with authority (Gin's a former elementary school teacher) but her constant harping on "Clean Fasting" got on my nerves and although you have to take a pledge to not debate this way of eating in order to be in her group I couldn't help questioning this do or die ultimatum. All of this is by way of explaining how I ended up finding Kayla Cox's book. Kayla's guide is jam packed with tips, hints and how-tos to make Intermittent Fasting not just do-able but easy. I have listened to the book and am now awaiting the paperback in order to be able to flip back and forth through it. That's one disadvantage of listening to rather than reading self-help books (and one reason why I'm ordering the paperback even though I also have the Kindle version). Bottom line: I find Kayla not only resourceful but completely relatable and I can't wait to get started implementing all her ideas. Actually I have already started on one -- adding cream to my black coffee during fasting hours. I want to revisit this review in six months (I've added a prompt in my calendar) to report on my progress. Gin's book is full of the "why's" of how IE works, this book is the User Manual of "How" to stick with it and make it work and in the process find loads of time to harness your new-found energy and figure out a bunch of other problems, not just food-centric problems, either. Worth it!! My only petty complaint is Kayla's accent. But I try to overlook it because it just makes her sound like a real person rather than a narrator.

Laid Back IF is life changing

Kayla Cox has done the heavy lifting for us by laying the groundwork for a pragmatic weight-loss approach that allows one to eat whatever foods are desired with a healthy dose of low-impact exercise. All that is needed is patience and consistency for this new approach to take root and create sustainable change. Thank you, Kayla!

Extremely Helpful

A complete turn around to previous conceptions of how to think about fasting. Her emotional approach to eating (over eating) is unique and IMHO brilliant. I really liked the quotes at the beginning of each chapter.

Listened to it in one day with great enjoyment.

Some think they cannot do it but it becomes easier each day and the way you feel is glorious. She has the right approach. Do not start off with once a day but fast 8 hours at first and each day extend it to at least 14 hours and you will feel great.

Perfect timing...!

Bravo to Kayla Cox for shedding light to how utterly exhausting losing weight can be, and how we can end up standing in our own way over it. I love this approach. I was already fasting, both intermittently and extended, but this really helped me mentally adjust, relax, and let my body do its work. I also think this would be an excellent book to anyone just starting to think about fasting.

I loved this audiobook

I love Kayla! She is so humble, smart and funny. Her audiobook not only gave me down to hearth information on intermittent fasting, but also inspired and motivated me. She speaks about how intermittent fasting helped her healing her relationship with food and living life more fully, and her story is very relatable yet inspirational. Thanks Kayla!

Great motivator

Really enjoyed the book and the tips given, the only thing is I wish the narrator would slow down a bit! Will implement some of the lessons learnt and start my diet, my way
