The premiere online fitness and nutrition program on the market.
start where you are | use what you have |do what you can-Arthur Ashe
My name is Summer Rae Beavers, I am a Certified Coach for the FASTer Way To Fat Loss® premier online fitness and nutrition program. I decided to become a coach after two years as a client. My mind is a battlefield, and the way in which I fuel my body is a huge factor in daily victory. December of 2018 I fell apart, not like had a bad day fall apart, but wanting relief in any way possible from the emotional pain. I felt I would never escape… completely hopeless. Now having somewhat emerged on the other side, I want to share my journey and help others tackle fear, anxiety, and depression, with a strength-based approach to attain and sustain a lifestyle that will provide the physical, mental and emotional strength you desire.
I care about my clients, and for me, there is nothing more important than encouraging others to go from I can’t to>>> “I can”, “I did”, “I am”. I understand first hand how a healthy lifestyle plays a critical role in your physical, emotional, and mental well being. I know how difficult it is to take that first step towards something new. You need a partner and a community to encourage you. The FASTer Way To Fat Loss® is the best program on the market to help you foster the positive changes you want to make.
As a FWTFL Certified Coach, I want to help you discover how the FASTer Way To Fat Loss® program can catapult you > into the you > you never imagined.
What is Carb Cycling?
A carb cycling program is just that an intentional cycle of carbohydrate intake each week. Most carb cycling plans consist of high carb days and low carb days. The FASTer Way To Fat Loss pairs our carb cycle with intermittent fasting and the workouts will maximize fat burn and energy levels.
Why Carb Cycle?
Long term restriction of carbohydrates and calories can lower your metabolic rate and negatively affect your hormone levels. This is a big reason women find themselves at one of those weight loss plateaus. For a short period of time a deprivation diet will bring you results, however, over time it will cause your metabolic rate to decrease. Once that happens, you will see your weight loss stop and will need to restrict calories even further to lose more weight, thus lowering your metabolic rate once again. Not only is this a terribly unhealthy way to live, it is also incredibly frustrating.
What does Carb Cycling do?
Carb cycling allows for planned high carb days that increase your thyroid output and help you control hunger. Because you are cycling your carbs, you will also have low carb days that offset your high carb days. With this type of cycle you will continue to see fat loss, increased energy levels and improvements to your overall body composition. Carb cycling improves insulin levels, helping your body store less fat. When paired with intermittent fasting and effective workouts, carb cycling can help you break through those dreaded plateaus so you can truly look and feel your very best.
What is Intermittent Fasting (IF)?
Intermittent fasting is not a type of diet, but an eating schedule. Your body is always in one of two states: fed or fasted. In the fed state (any time your body is digesting food), your body’s insulin levels make burning fat a challenge. However, in the fasted state (8-12 hours after your body finishes digesting), your insulin levels are lower and better able to reach into your fat stores. People rarely go into a fasted state throughout the day. In fact, the traditional theory of several small meals per day keeps us from ever reaching the fasted state. In addition, that type of eating schedule regularly spikes our insulin levels, which also hinders fat loss. So, while eating several small meals per day can lead to weight loss (calorie deficits always do), you will likely be losing both muscle and fat. When you lose calorie burning muscle, you lower your metabolic rate and make it harder for your body to burn fat. You also might become frustrated because you never feel toned and fit even though you are working out and eating clean.
Will I fast daily?
Yes. This program is called the FASTer Way to Fat Loss because we focus on implementing cutting edge nutrition strategies like intermittent fasting. We will be fasting daily.
I am breastfeeding, can I participate?
Yes! The creator, Amanda Tress, breastfeed through FASTer Way to Fat Loss with no negative impacts to supply. If you are breastfeeding, we will modify your low carb days and be very diligent about your water intake. If you are focused on whole food nutrition and you’re well hydrated, and you’re EATING ENOUGH CALORIES, you won’t see a decrease in milk supply. We will be sure to check on your caloric intake because when you are living in too big of a calorie deficit and doing crazy, intense workouts, your milk supply can absolutely be affected. The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is designed to fuel your body in a way that is perfectly safe for nursing moms.
Do I need to purchase shakes, wraps, or supplements?
Nope! Throughout the program we will talk about the importance of probiotics, protein and other supplements like BCAA’s. While I am happy to share the products I use and love, none of them are required to participate. I am a huge proponent of fueling your body with real food and this program is based on that premise. Nothing is required but hard work, commitment and a positive mind set.
Am I a good fit for this program?
You bet! This program is for women and men. In addition, this program has been incredibly successful for women who have a foundation of working out and under 60 pounds to lose. This program is challenging and will require commitment. If you have more than 60 pounds to lose and have not worked out in a long time, then we can make the program work for you, but it will require some modifying. If that’s you, I will have you start with our nutritional cycle then ease you into our workouts. I truly want you to see results, but I also want you to be safe and remain injury free. So, if you have more than 60 pounds to lose, we will move a little more slowly, but will eventually be able to ease you into the full program and lifestyle over time.
Do I have to follow a strict meal plan?
We provide guidelines for each day of our food cycle. For example, on low carb day I will indicate that your goal is to consume less than 50g net carbs. I will explain how to calculate your macros (carbs, fats, protein) and also give you a sample meal plan and recipes. However, you will have the flexibility to consume the foods you truly enjoy.
