Podcast: When Diets Don’t Work, Try Time-Restricted Eating – It’s Not All About Counting Calories

While there is no clear consensus on how effective diets can be at keeping off weight, some publications suggest the fail rates may be as high as 95%.

Dr. Satchin Panda outlines a strategy which could prove far more effective for everyone’s long-term health – and it’s not all about counting calories. It’s about time-restricted eating: limiting the period of food consumption during the day to coincide with your circadian clock, as well as giving your metabolism time to recover and your cells time to rebuild.

For instance, not eating or drinking anything but water in the evening after 7:00 pm, and waiting until noon for your first meal.

When people adopt a time-restricted feeding in their regular life – in real life, not in the laboratory condition or in clinical trials – then they naturally reduce their caloric intake without even counting calories. 

Over the course of his studies, Dr. Panda has observed a variety of positive results from when people have used the time-restricted eating strategy, including the reduction of symptoms related to autoimmune diseases like irritable bowel syndrome and multiple sclerosis.

Listen to the podcast host, Ronda Patrick, who has a Ph.D. in biomedical studies, as she discusses with Dr. Panda how circadian biology can impact our health and well-being.
