MARCH 20th CHALLENGE REGISTRATION LINK In today’s episode, we discuss a study that examined whether restricting carbohydrate intake to earlier in the day, as part of a Mediterranean diet, would improve glycemic control for people with type 2 diabetes. The study found no significant difference between this approach and consuming carbs throughout the day, raising questions about diet, fasting, and metabolic health. We also explored the implications of the study's findings, emphasizing the importance of aligning food intake with circadian rhythms, varying fasting windows, and making intentional food choices, particularly for those seeking to manage diabetes or achieve long-term weight loss with a fasting lifestyle. The episode also highlights the benefits of time-restricted eating, with a focus on earlier meal timing, and encourages listeners to consider tools like the Fasting for Life Blueprint for Fat Loss, which provides fasting schedules and strategies to enhance results and integrate fasting into daily life.

Ep. 49 - Why diets fail, Willpower vs. Mindset and how to shift your thinking | Intermittent Fasting for Maintenance | Long-term Intermittent Fasting | Free OMAD Intermittent Fasting Plan

ANNOUNCEMENT! THANKS TO LISTENER FEEDBACK, WE'RE DOING ONE MORE CHALLENGE THIS YEAR 12/3 - 12/12! REGISTER HERE!   In this episode, Dr. Scott and Tommy dive deep into the struggle many people face when it comes to transitioning from a "diet" and into maintaining their healthy goal weight. The disconnect between how one reached their goal and the optimal techniques to maintain it can cause confusion, frustration, and oftentimes complete regression back to an unhealthy body composition. Willpower is a key component in this equation, and the mindset shift away from dieting and toward lifestyle design allows for freedom and proactive decisions that have staying power.   Have a question you'd like us to answer?

In this episode, Dr. Scott and Tommy have a candid discussion about how habits can slip over time and results can slow. Success leaves clues, but sometimes it takes a while to realize we haven't made progress in a while. A bit of self-reflection leads them to a framework for jump-starting a change. Perceive. Realizing there's a problem and it’s not fixing itself based on current habits. This can take a while, as excuses are easy to cover up and explain away the problem for a while. Decide. Making the choice that the change begins right now, because there’s no other solution. Not waiting until after the weekend. Right now. Plan. Filling in the blanks for which behaviors and standards will change (now) and what that looks like day-to-day. “I don’t care about the work meeting this week, I’m drinking lemon water.” Tuesday night dinner is tacos and I love them, so I’ll be cleaning the closet and gutters.” Execute.

In this episode, Dr. Scott and Tommy dive into one of the main reasons why people say they have "tried" fasting, dabbled with it, or had a brief experience with it and the results were just okay. Hunger is a turn-off for most people. It is something that can stop a fast in its tracks. The cephalic phase of digestion is a physiological response that is governed by the nervous system. It starts a cascade of hormones telling your brain that you are hungry. Marketing, mouthwash, and smelling the neighbor's cooking can all stimulate this process that tricks you into thinking you NEED to eat. Listen in to pick up some tips on how to push through!

They also discuss the negative psychology surrounding the scale and the anxiety and frustration that it can cause.

The last main topic is framing all of this inside the thought that FASTING is not a punishment for what you ate or did the days and weeks prior as well as an upcoming life event. It is a reward for knowing where you are going and sticking to the PLAN.   Show Transcript: www.thefastingforlife.com/blog   If you enjoy the podcast, would you please tap on the stars below and consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts/iTunes?

In this episode, Dr. Scott and Tommy reveal a BIG announcement that they have been working on for months! Listen in for details on the Fasting For Life Experience that starts on Friday, June 12, 2020. Go to www.thefastingforlife.com/live for details. The conversation in the episode dives into the "hyperinsulinemic syndrome," which is a broad category that encompasses many metabolic and disease processes. Obvious as with Type II diabetes, there is a direct link to insulin and blood sugar related issues. The indication, however, is that insulin is linked to many other conditions such as atherosclerosis, PCOS, sleep apnea, elevated triglycerides, and cardiovascular diseases. True health is in the prevention of disease and not the management of it. By removing the source of the problem we can achieve better lives through improved long-term health.  https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24962189/   Show Transcript: www.thefastingforlife.com/blog   If you enjoy the podcast, would you please tap on the stars below and consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts/iTunes?

In this episode, Dr. Scott and Tommy discuss seizing control in everyday situations, which is especially important during unpredictable times. Intermittent fasting and extended fasting create immediate control throughout the day. They talk about routines and how controlling what is within your reach will help you be a leader and a source of stability to those around you. Fasting trims away obligations and never-ending calorie counting in favor of fewer, simpler decisions that are much easier to commit to and maintain. A sense of control can be cultivated by learning from history and knowing that cycles are a natural part of life. They remind listeners that simplifying one's daily life means less to worry about and lower anxiety levels during downturns, even as most other people are fearing the worst. Fasting automatically makes daily life simpler and lowers fears of food shortages, unscheduled interruptions to meal timing, and having to adjust complicated meal plans due to specific food availability.   Show Transcript: www.thefastingforlife.com/blog   If you enjoy the podcast, would you please tap on the stars below and consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts/iTunes?
