Destination Health: The ‘Fast’ Track to Weight Loss

Intermittent fasting has become a popular option in helping drop those pandemic pounds. Cardiologist Dr. Brian Taschner says the benefits may go far beyond just shedding a little extra weight. “The one that’s actually most common now, is what they call time-restricted feeding,” says Dr. Taschner. “And this is where people leave a fasting interval.”

A popular fasting interval is 16 hours: that means eight hours of eating and 16 hours of fasting, but Dr. Taschner says shorter intervals may be easier for some people. “There are benefits that come even with 12 hours, 14 hours. Sixteen hours may be a little bit more beneficial if you’re trying to lose weight. Probably because in part, we’re just consuming less calories.”

Whatever the fasting interval, researchers have found proven benefits to time-restricted eating. “Reduced cholesterol, making diabetes better so people become less insulin resistant, reduced markers of inflammation, there are anti-aging properties,” says Dr. Taschner.

Research also shows that when you fast may be more important than how long you fast. “Part of time-restricted feeding means that we shouldn’t eat late at night,” explains Dr. Taschner. “We should stop eating three to four hours before we go to bed.”

Dr. Taschner also says people who consume more of their calories earlier in the day tend to lose more weight and can lower their inflammation and insulin resistance.
