On today’s NEW podcast episode Dr. Felice Gersh, M.D. we’re focusing on time-restricted eating. It’s a nutritional approach that’s not about what you eat, but when you eat.
What is time-restricted eating? It means a person eats all their meals and snacks within a particular window of time each day. Outside that window, a person consumes no calories. It’s a type of intermittent fasting that has become popular in the recent years. And by the way, intermittent fasting refers to any eating plan that alternates between periods restricting caries and then eating normally.
By the way, intermittent fasting is a way to boost weight loss, lengthen lifespan, reduce insulin resistance, improve heart health and have positive effects on your immunity.
I get a lot of questions on time-restricted eating. Is it effective, is it safe, what’s the best approach for women, and do the benefits vary based on your age?
That’s why I’m delighted to have Dr. Felice Gersh, M.D. on the show today. I had the privilege of meeting Felice at the A4M conference in Las Vegas a few years ago. She has a brilliant mind, is an incredible speaker, is passionate about holistic women’s healthcare, and she’s a leader in this discussion of intermittent fasting.
She’s an award-winning physician, a board-certified gynecologist, and obstetrician, also trained in integrative medicine. She received her undergraduate degree from Princeton, and her medical degree from USC School of Medicine.
On today’s show, you’ll discover…
• Time-restricted isn’t a miracle weight loss cure, but how can it impact your lifespan, insulin resistance, and heart health?
• There are different windows of time to go without eating… 10-hour, 12 hour, and even a 16-hour fasting window. Is there a sweet spot… and what is it, specifically for women?
• Since with time-restricted eating, you haven’t had food for some period of time, that first meal is important. What is an optimal way to refuel the next day?
