As a society, our frequent snacks and multiple daily meals have jacked up our insulin levels way higher than our feast/famine-based metabolic framework is programed for.
As a result, diabetes and obesity are skyrocketing across the globe-even in children, says Dr. Fung.
The solution is not always a low-carb, high-fat diet, he says.
Compressing the "feeding window" and going for longer periods of time between meals is.
In brief, even a higher-carb diet-if eaten in a compressed feeding window-can drop baseline levels of insulin such that fat is being burned, not stored-as is the case when one snacks and eats frequently.
