    In today’s episode, Dr. Scott and Tommy discuss a compelling October 2021 study on time-restricted feeding (TRF) that improves blood glucose and insulin sensitivity in overweight patients with type 2 diabetes. The randomized trial featured a 10-hour daily feeding window without specific diet constraints. TRF led to a 28% reduction in calorie intake, improved overall health scores, and significant drops in A1C, fasting glucose, body weight, and insulin resistance. Notably, these positive outcomes occurred without intentional changes in physical activity or diet quality. The study underscores the potential of a simple and sustainable 10-hour TRF approach for managing type 2 diabetes.

Gpa Roy down 60

I have omad fasting for several years. My weight has slowly gone from 329 pounds to 270 pounds. I do CrossFit workouts daily and expect to lose another 70 pounds. I am enjoying your pod casts and am inspired by your discussions. Thanks for doing what you do for us! Gpa Roy

Faster than I thought!!! ,

Fasting has changed my life

Good morning gentlemen, in the beginning of 2024.

My name is Lawrence and I have been fasting for about three years now but nothing like the way that U2 have shown fasting my fast were 16 eight nothing long-term, nothing consistent, and the results of that is nothing worked but since I have found your show things have changed dramatically. I am currently down30 pounds from November to right now I have been a diabetic since 2000 and have never been able to control it, I’ve tried every diet on the market. At least I think I have and there’s always that rubber band effect that happens. I used to tell myself. What am I doing wrong? What am I doing wrong? I used to work out a lot but when I hit the cheesecake stack, everything reversed on meuntil this podcast. Now I have structure I have guidance I know what direction to go. I am currently doing a three day fast into a 16 eight into a 24 and then moderate weekend warrior. all seems to be working well even when I break my goal fast early, there’s no guilt involved being that I know the next steps of what I should do. I cheat all the time on my fast and I still get the success that I’m looking for thank you very much gentlemen I really appreciate, your ongoing progress and your own fasting journeys to encourage and to help me in my fasting journey. Keep up the good work.

PS what does it mean when you say throwing the baby out with the bathwater? Does that mean starting over again?

Also, I want to join your next seven day challenge but I’m wondering since I’m already doing well is it gonna benefit me by introducing me to a close Nick community do you have meal plans preps and other things like that to keep me consistently going just wondering. Anyways, cheers to fasting

Service travel ,

1st 72hr Fast

I did my first 72hr fast after dabbling with intermittent fasting. Didn’t research prior, got a little nervous at times but strangely enough my body told me what it needed. I was surprised at how easy it was. Too many myths and fears around it. I stopped drinking a day prior, the cold sweat withdrawal night was worse than this. Each day got easier. I graved pickle juice which I heard later on this program, it really helped. I’ll buy the electrolytes for next time. I did it to reset my gut, cravings, alcohol abuse, sever inflammation, rashes and blotting reaction every time I eat. Bonus, I lost 10 lbs in 3 days.
