Consider a simple form of #intermittentfasting. Limit the hours of the day when you eat…for best effect, make it earlier in the day between 7 am to 3 pm, or even 10 am to 6 pm.

Avoid snacking or eating right before bedtime.

This systematic review and meta-analysis suggests that intermittent fasting is associated with successful weight loss and metabolic benefits among adults with obesity.
- IF as a weight loss approach was found to be mostly successful in the initial phase (ie, 1-6 months).
- Modified alternate-day fasting and the 5:2 diet were the only IF types that were associated with statistically significant weight loss of more than 5% in adults with overweight or obesity.

I've been doing a bunch of @coursera courses, some of them totally random. For the joy of learning, I thought I'll share them here. #Mooc

*Introduction to Ancient Egypt and its Civilisation*…
*Wonders of Ancient Egypt*

(1/n) Our #IntermittentFasting paper stimulated some healthy discourse but it seems many are sold on IF and wanted different results. Sorry if the findings are hard to hear; I expected IF to come out better but we must follow the evidence where it leads...…
(2/n) ...this research was a labour of love but is complex and imperfect - there is plenty we could or should have done differently. Sadly, some who advocate or sell IF want to ignore what can be learnt from this study by discrediting the work and even those who conducted it...
(3/n) is list of common criticisms that may have some validity but have also been presented by some in a naive or intellectually lazy manner:
-Not 'real' fasting (i.e. validity?)
-Not overweight (i.e. BMI <25 kg/m2)
-Not 'large' (i.e. n=36)
-Not honest (i.e. funding)

For all those who argue as nauseum about #lowcarb !! I'm a doctor and I'm not an idiot to tell people to stay off medicines and focus on inner immunity and health. All my life I struggled with a hypocaloric high carb diet. That's why I feel deeply about this whole topic. #health
I was a plump child and was always told to eat less and exercise more. I was always hungry. I grew up to a fat teen with a terrible body image. It drives me up the wall to see people unnecessarily arguing about the so called balanced diet. I tried all gimmicks : Alas
Thank God that I came across #IntermittentFasting and #lowcarb. It's never about #weight. It's about #Health. #weightloss and a #positiveattitude is the by product.
Thank you to all those who have been a part. I'm 3 years menopausal now. And pretty much fit for my age. #fit

It's my absolute honor to introduce today's speaker at the @StanfordWellMD Physician #Wellness Forum.

Dr. @MaryamSHamidi will be sharing insights on the “Nutritional Strategies to Improve Alertness and Mood”.

#doctorsarehumanstoo #preventburnout
It's important to eat meals early (within 60 minutes of natural waking) and weigh the first meal more than the rest.

#IntermittentFasting has so many benefits including decreasing body fat BUT NOT necessarily weight loss. The latter has to do with caloric intake.

Intermittent fasting and stress responses and longevity..…
@MikeAlbertMD does your weight loss clinic include and or study intermittent fasting? Curious..
Practical considerations with #IntermittentFasting
1. 3 meals a day and food mkting is a hurdle
2. Initial symptoms like irritability should be expected
3. Physicians not trained to prescribe a regimen( one size might not fit all)

"There's no evidence for fasting, and its just another fad diet/religion. Just do CICO instead.""

Sigh, fine. You asked for it. Flood gates are open.

Fasting Data thread:

#IntermittentFasting #fasting
In 1973, an obese man fasted 382 days, only taking water, coffee and tea with vitamins and medical supervision.

Noted effects of the Fasting experiment:
-125kg of weight loss
-Symptom free
-No complaints of hunger
-Weight did not come back on…
Growth Hormone (GH) increases to sustain muscle mass during fasting period. As long as you have sufficient fat stores, protein oxidation stays low.

GH also increases fat oxidation, which is perfect for bodyfat loss

Food used to be my crutch. I can be quoted saying, "I'll never be skinny again cause I like food too much"....

The truth is my body was addicted to the constant exogenous supply of glucose.

I used to have arthritis in my knee, and if I didn't eat, I got severe....
Hunger pangs and hypoglycemia.

A doctor when I was young told me I had insulin resistance and told me the solution was to keep candy in my pocket.... worsening this condition

I counted calories
I ate sugar laden protein bars
I got energy drinks (cause at least they have ...
Metabolism boosters.... or so I thought)
I took diet pills
I ate sugars and treats in moderation
I went to the gym and did copious amounts of cardio (and one time I did get skinny and keep it off for a few years in the military)
But after I regained, I could not get it back off..
