You know how you tend to wander in and out of the kitchen at your office a bunch of times every day…and you’re greeted by coworkers who are doing the same? That’s because Americans are grazers. We love to eat, and studies suggest we also snack up to 3 times a day, which isn’t necessarily a good thing! The popularity of intermittent fasting (IF), also known as time-restricted eating, may be in response to our grazing habits. It’s one of the few diets that gets a hearty endorsement from both celebrities and medical experts: Kourtney Kardashian, Chris Pratt, and other celebs have touted its purported weight loss benefits, while scientists appreciate its potential for general health. In terms of putting the diet into practice, almost everyone who tries it likes that it’s open to interpretation and customizable to your lifestyle. IF isn’t really a diet—it’s a dietary pattern. It involves periods of eating (feasting) followed by fasting. The fasting period generally lasts between 12 and 16 hours, so you eat during specific hours in the daytime and fast during the evening and overnight. Some prefer making the fasting period anywhere from 14 to 36 hours...or even longer. Others prefer to limit what they eat 1 to 3 days a week, then eat freely other days. So, what does ”fasting” actually mean? What’s off limits, and what’s not? Again, a lot of this is totally your call. Some fasters only have water or herbal tea. Other people allow themselves juices, coffee, and smoothies. The best part: Most fasting hours take place overnight while you are sleeping. So don’t fear, grazers—even if this plan sounds too difficult for your eating habits, it might not be such a hard adjustment!

I’m trying to lose weight to hopefully manage my chronic illnesses but I’m having trouble. My doctor recommended intermittent fasting to help reduce inflammation. I’m open to it but I’m worried that it could be bad for my mental health or my (suspected) pots. Anyone tried intermittent fasting?
I'm through day three of my 2 meals 1 snack diet. I've also combined it with intermittent fasting. I've been lenient on the snacks because I've had sports and needed a bit more food. They've been healthy snacks though. Usually when I try restricting food it goes bad, but I've got a good feeling about this time!

FoundMyFitness: Dr. Satchin Panda on Practical Implementation of Time-Restricted Eating & Shift Work Strategies
This is a nearly 2-hour round 2 episode with none other than Dr. Satchin Panda of the Salk Institute! At nearly two hours of dialog, this episode touches on a lot of material but has a special focus on practical implementation of time-restricted eating. Put another way, I kept a list of a lot of questions that seem to keep coming up and present them directly to Satchin. We talk about dealing with shift work, black coffee when fasting, and some of the distinctions between Satchin's approach to time-restricted eating which is influenced by his deep background in circadian biology and more conventional protocols like 16:8 that many people are familiar with. In addition to these important and very practical how-to tidbits, we dive into lots of interesting new territory as well, including... How human anecdote and animal evidence suggests time-restricted feeding may be especially useful for gut-related issues, including inflammatory bowel disease and acid reflux. The fascinating way Dr. Panda is using human anecdote from his trial to ask new scientific questions he wouldn't think to ask and then going back to animal data to figure it out and how this unique approach forms a sort of closed loop pattern: animal → human feedback → back to animal for mechanism. How labs doing caloric restriction research may have actually been reaping the benefits of time-restricted without realizing it as an incidental to their experimental design. The revelation that 70% of FDA drugs are subject to circadian effects and are either less effective or more effective at certain times of the day. The effect melatonin has on the pancreatic production of insulin and the insight this lends to why we should probably stop eating 3-4 hours before we go to bed. The bizarre way circadian rhythms affects everything from susceptibility to UV damage to recovery from surgery to cancer risk.
