Can Intermittent Fasting Help You Lose Weight?

2020-10-17T00:57:33+00:00Fasting Techniques, Health|

You may have seen a recent study making headlines titled, Intermittent fasting doesn’t help you lose weight, claiming that “a 12-week UCSF study of 116 overweight people found no statistically significant difference in weight loss between people who restricted their eating to a specific eight-hour period every day and those who didn’t.” This is not the first time fasting has been challenged. Fasting is truly an art form, requiring a deep understanding of how fasting can be used as an effective health tool. So when articles like these come out, I like to dig deeper into the science and methods used by the researchers, to understand how they came to the conclusions they did.  Watch my full video where

Good Fat versus Bad Fat

2020-09-28T13:03:18+00:00Health, Nutrition|

Let’s talk about “good” fats versus “bad” fats for a moment. Generally, on a ketogenic diet, 60-70% of your food should be coming from fat. But not just any fat. Good fats. Yes, this means not all fats are created equal! There are several types of “bad” fats that you should definitely steer clear of.  Most people starting the ketogenic diet initially fail to differentiate between good fats and bad fats. This is commonly referred to as “dirty keto”, which allows bad fats like processed and fast foods. A dirty keto diet not only lacks essential nutrients but can actually do more harm than good because of the inflammatory effects of eating bad fats. Watch this to find out

Benefits of Oxytocin: Improved Fasting, Weight Loss, and Insulin Resistance

2020-09-24T16:08:39+00:00Health|

Let's talk about the many benefits of oxytocin. Oxytocin, also called the feel-good or “love and connection hormone” is a secret linchpin to so many mechanisms in our body. Originally discovered in 1906, scientists believed the primary purpose of oxytocin was for reproduction, mother-child bonding, lactation and appetite regulation. However in 1963 studies on oxytocin began to reveal that oxytocin had several other powers as well, specifically that oxytocin had a metabolic effect on the body. So what are the benefits of oxytocin on the body? A meta analysis of oxytocin revealed that when people had higher levels of oxytocin in the body, it improved glucose uptake, insulin sensitivity and induced the breakdown of fat!  So, what this tells

Let me say this loud and clear, women should be fasting. There are a lot of myths and misunderstandings about how fasting affects women, so I wanted to dive in today into the science and research around women and fasting.  In a meta analysis of over 44 peer reviewed studies done on fasting and women, the study concluded that “fasting can be prescribed as a safe medical intervention, as well as a lifestyle regimen which can improve women’s health in many folds.” Read that again! Specifically, they found 5 different categories where fasting helps women. Cancer This meta analysis looked at 3 different types of fasts and how they affected cancer.

How Many Hours Should You Fast?

2020-08-13T00:58:26+00:00Fasting Techniques, Health|

One of the questions I get asked most frequently is, “how many hours should I fast?” Well, that depends on what health benefits you are hoping to achieve.  The longer you fast, the more the benefits add up.  However that doesn’t necessarily mean longer is better for everyone. For example, if you’re hoping to increase ketones, a 17 hour fast may be what you need, however if you’re trying to heal a musculoskeletal injury, you’ll want to work your way up to a 72 hour fast. And of course, if you’re new to fasting, read my Beginner’s Guide to Fasting.   Here are the benefits of fasting broken down by hours fasted: 13-15 hour fast A 13-15 hour fast is

Fasting refers to the deliberate abstention from food and/or fluids for a period of time, for therapeutic purposes. Many people don’t know that fasting has been used for thousands of years in various religious and spiritual practices throughout human history, and in a sense, fasting is part of everyday life. The term ‘breakfast’ is the meal that breaks the fast, which is done daily. The recent increase in scientific research around fasting has allowed us to understand just how fasting positively affects our physiology, cells, aging, disease and overall health.
