What is a Joker day?

With the Coach you can have a Joker day and take a break once a week if necessary.

All outstanding fasting periods will then be pushed back by one day.

      Hola Juan,
      En tu día comodín no tienes que ayunar y puedes comer cuando quieras. Sin embargo, la semana se prolonga un día más, para que se respeten todos los tiempos de ayuno del programa y puedan producirse los efectos positivos.:)

      Sí, por supuesto que puedes ajustar los tiempos de ayuno para que se ajusten a tu rutina personal. Esa es la belleza del ayuno intermitente: se adapta a tu vida, no al revés.

      Hello Lauren,
      a joker day is simply a day on which you don’t have to follow any schedule. This means taking a break from fasting.:)

      Hello Joyce, for fasts up to 24 hours we don’t recommend any special kinds of foods to break your fast. As intermittent fasting should become your daily routine, we recommend to listen to your body and to take notice which kinds of foods feel good after a fast and which don’t. Usually you can eat whatever you like after an intermittent fasting period but it’s always important to notice the difference in your body, your energy levels and also in your mood after certain kinds of foods.:)

      Yes, you can 😊 A joker day is a day on which you take a break from fasting, meaning that you can eat and drink whatever you want. However, we advise not to see these days as “cheat days”, meaning that you should still eat in moderation and listen to your body.

    Can a Joker day be modified to fit a 24-hour period (or any period for that matter) that doesn’t start at 12 am?

    I have had the circumstance come up a couple times where I follow my coach plan on the morning, but had something come up unexpectedly where I wanted it needed to eat after my eating period ended by a few hours. Instead of extending the next day’s day by 3-4 hours, I retroactively called it a Joker day, but am bummed out on losing the 12+ hours of good fasting that I did to get to that spot earlier in the day.

      Hi Aaron, at the moment, that’s not possible unfortunately. The only solution would be to adjust the fasting and eating windows manually using the plan editor. We’re constantly trying to make our app better so we thank you for your feedback. Happy BodyFasting! 😊

      Hi Kamal, a joker day is simply a day on which you take a break from fasting. So you don’t have to follow any specific schedule on that day. So the rest of your weekly plan gets shifted one day ahead then. Don’t be worried if you didn’t lose weight yet. Your body may need some time to adjust to intermittent fasting and losing weight is not the only benefit. You may notice some other positive benefits as well, e.g., losing inches, a better sleep, or better skin.
