The Brave Method
Make your wellness strategy work for you
What are your goals?
While many wellness strategies leave you feeling tired, hungry and sluggish, our Brave Method has you covered…
By using our products throughout the day you benefit from key nutrition and sustenance when you need it most. The Brave Method helps you smoothly overcome motivational pitfalls, side-step progress plateaus, support energy and metabolism to easily achieve your goals.
All wellness strategies - from healthy eating plans, low carb diets and paleo, to intermittent fasting, ketogenic diets and biohacking - have their own set of guidelines, benefits and daily challenges.

Fasting and Refueling
As a general guide, fasting is a lot easier than you think and most of us are doing it already. If you eat your last meal by 7pm, and you don’t eat again until 7am, you’ve already done a 12 hour fast – pretty good!
We recommend extending that fasting window for a few hours - 14 to 16 hours is ideal, just 2 to 3 times a week. After your fast, re-wild your wellbeing with the Brave Lifestyle and return to balance with our Brave Wellness tips before beginning your next fast.

Jo Woodhurst delves into ways to combat this.
