EPISODE 429: Fast, Feast, Repeat

When we think of dieting and weight loss, the first thing that comes to mind is calorie counting, portion control, and a list of “good” and “bad” foods. But what if there was a much simpler way to start? What if, before you superimpose restrictions and rules, you could achieve huge benefits simply by altering your meal timing?

Enter: time-restricted eating (aka intermittent fasting). The simple practice increasing the break time between your last meal today and your first meal tomorrow can have exciting effects on your hormones, blood sugar, body fat, and overall weight. For most people interested in weight loss, this is the simplest, safest, and easiest place to start – so why not?

My guest on this week’s podcast lost 80lbs with timer-restricted eating, and she’s kept it off since 2005.

Listen in to learn:

  • Why diets usually fail because they battle against your biology instead of working with it naturally
  • How simply skipping breakfast and reducing your eating window can sometimes lead to exciting changes in your body and health
  • How quickly the results of meal timing can manifest
  • How to stop with negative self-talk, guilt and shame around food
