Topics Discussed in this episode:

The concept of Time-Restricted Feeding or Eating

  • The benefits of Time-Restricted Feeding or Eating
  • How the fasting or eating model affects fat development
  • How feeding or eating patterns help to prevent some diseases

Key Takeaways:

  • Time-Restricted Feeding or Eating helps brain health, reduces the risk of metabolic diseases, maintains gut integrity, blocks white and opposes cell hypertrophy, prevents brown fat from turning into white fat, reduces heart aging, and preserves muscle fitness.
  • Brown and White Fat. Brown fat is more mitochondrially condensed and can be found in the upper back, shoulders and traps. On the other hand, white fat can be found around the waist or the thighs.
  • Fasting can block the white fat cell hypertrophy or enlargement and development of fat cells.

Action Steps:

  • Reduce late-night snacks
  • Have calorie intake in a shorter window without changing the volume
  • Restrict the hours that you spend eating or consuming calories to a relatively small period of time

Leanne said:

“We are not consciously restricting our calories, this isn’t a diet. This is a pattern of eating which we are intaking the same number of meals”.

“There are lots of reasons why I’m doing this and as I say my main measures of success will be, do I feel better? Do I feel like I have a bit more energy?”
