This week on the High Wire Woman podcast, Rosanna Berardi is talking about intermittent fasting. Her guest, Laurie Lewis, has studied fasting principles from some of the greatest doctors in the world and has helped many individuals through her coaching program. Laurie and Rosanna walk through a typical coaching session and discuss practical tips on how to feel good while staying healthy.

You'll hear Rosanna and Laurie talk about:

  • How Laurie started in the field of diet health, and her struggles with perimenopause.
  • Intermittent fasting is not a program, it's an eating schedule that matches the design of a human being. This is because throughout history people have never had 24/7 access to food.
  • The calorie theory is flawed as the body actually has no calorie receptors. The idea that taking in less calories means less weight gain does not work because weight loss is hormonal. If the body perceives less nutrients than it receives, it slows the metabolism. Many people have to be coached in permanently balancing their hormones, lowering their insulin, and accessing the body's stored fat.
  • You get to decide how long your fasting period is and the factors that you need to consider are: your goals, your lifestyle, what meals you like to eat, your social life and your work schedule.
  • Tiny meals a day to rev up your metabolism is a flawed concept. You can't tap into your body's fat storage when insulin is high, and insulin is high when you're eating all the time.
  • The two-step process of intermittent fasting is deciding when your eating window closes and discovering the foods that love you back.
  • You should take in no flavors or nutrients while fasting, so the body can be in a full state of rest. Even a simple flavor like mint or lemon sends signals to the brain that food is incoming, and it makes fasting harder.
  • One important aspect of a diet is choosing to eat real food.
  • "If we can be enthusiastically, deliberately pausing from eating every day and feeling so well in those fasting hours and then looking forward to eating delicious food later...we get to relish in the experiment of what we're eating and notice what makes us feel well and what makes us feel poorly," Laurie tells Rosanna.
  • When opening your eating window, try to eat as much protein and fat as possible and save the refined carbohydrates such as grains for your dinner. Also start paying attention to how different foods make you feel.
  • Where High Wire Women can go to get more information on Laurie's program.

You don't have to resort to elaborate diets, or vigorous exercise regimen to lose weight. All you have to do is simply take charge of when you eat and when you don't.
