Early Time Restricted Eating (or Intermittent Fasting) put to the test.

What is Time Restricted Eating?

It simply means eating daily within a time limited window usually from 8 to 12 hours. You question your eating habits not looking at WHAT you are eating, but WHEN your are eating. I covered this approach in details in two previous articles: “What did I learn from two years of practicing Time Restricted Eating?” and “The inconvenient truth about Time Restricted Eating”.

Evason Hua Hin — Blue Lotus Café

The original idea

It all started as a joke during one of our lively conversations while having breakfast at Blue Lotus in Thailand. We launched Blue Lotus in February 2017, the first plant-based learning center in Asia based in a resort, Evason Hua Hin. After two years of teaching, we decided with my co-host Ivor Madžar to start in July 2017 by recording just four episodes to share some of our teaching topics and lectures. The upper bar of the resort became our studio.

Focus on Outcomes. Not Hours. Care about your Work.

Where to Start?

A first principle for pricing is to prevent from working at loss. In order to avoid this, you need to figure out what are your usual expenses, how much it costs you to work and evaluating how much you can work to finally deduct what is your minimal viability.

Dream with a Plan. Develop with Constraints. Set Simple Rules.

The Project Operating System is a set of simple rules to be formulated in a concise way. These simple rules consist of constraints and guiding principles to operate with, to facilitate the decision making process, to simplify the key processes and to guide the project development.

Dream with a Plan. Resources. Constraints

Type of Simple Rules:

  • How-to: project governance, dependencies, partners, crew. How are some key processes executed? (like developing a new service).
  • Scoping: which opportunity to pursue? Which not. What to do? Why? What is your main activity and what is out of your scope of action?
  • Priorities: selection…

A personal manifesto is a letter to yourself, a reminder and a call to live under your terms.

For some reason, people tend to struggle to draft their manifesto. Maybe it is the word “manifesto”. Maybe it reveals a lack of self-knowledge. Maybe it has to do with the fear to discover your true personality. Writing down your manifesto should not impress you this much. It is simply an exercise to get to know yourself better. It is not your official bio. It is a work-in-progress, that you can edit anytime.

Knowing how-to learn is useful in any context. It is like knowing how-to write, communicate and sell or knowing how-to manage your time and attention. As soon as you master a meta-skill like learning, the effects are long-term in terms of independence, adaptation and evolution.

No talent required… it is like a muscle, it gets better by practice and repetition.

🌱 Simplify the WHAT

Keep it simple.

Look for Colors 🌈 in Plants (phytonutrients, fibers, anti-oxydants).

Go for Quality (local, seasonal & fresh) and Nutrient Density (vitamins, minerals) with Whole Plant Foods.

Cook from Scratch.

When in Doubt Eat more Plants!⁣
