Key Takeaways

  • For a lot of our lives, women have been told many different things about eating and mealtimes. Mindy was one of them. What is starting to be understood—through various studies—is that Time Restricted Eating is the way humans are supposed to eat to stay metabolically healthy. Meaning that diseases like diabetes, obesity, Alzheimers, heart disease and hormone imbalances can be prevented and even reversed by when we do and don’t eat.
  • During these resting or ‘fasting’ periods, your body is healing itself.
    There are a lot of different fasting diets around, but Dr. Mindy focuses on the one that has the best-proven results and is the easiest to follow.
  • Women’s hormones make eating and lifestyle much more complicated.
  • Estrogen loves it when you fast, particularly if you are going through an estrogen decline, such as during menopause. Progesterone is the opposite and does not want you to fast.
  • Low testosterone has become a problem for both men and women.
  • Men can fast whenever they want, but still need to “step out of fasting” at times. 5:1:1 is good for them.
  • Menopause – as estrogen declines, you become more insulin resistant. We are moving into a time where people are more fluid with their sexuality and gender, with research on hormones and their impact becoming more prevalent, it may give us some answers to why we are seeing more of this in the modern age.
  • Hormones are far-reaching in our lives, they impact our health, our relationships, and much more. Fasting can help us gain control over our hormones and create a lifestyle more in line with what we evolved to be.
