Time-restricted eating, which involves taking in food within a small window of time during the day and fasting for the remainder, can improve certain biomarkers of health – even without weight loss – to improve overall health. In Part I of this two-part segment, Drs. Satchin Panda and Ruth Patterson describe how eating following the body's circadian clock – eating during the day and fasting at night – enables the body to focus on repair rather than on the digestion of food.

In this episode, we discuss:
  • 00:00:00 - Introduction
  • 00:01:05 - Time-restricting eating reduces fat mass, increases lean muscle mass, reduces inflammation, and much more (Satchin Panda discussion)
  • 00:08:16 - Maintaining a 9-12 hour eating window improves metabolism, increases muscle mass, and alters gene expression
  • 00:12:38 - The benefits of intermittent fasting are independent of weight loss (Ruth Patterson discussion)
  • 00:17:54 - Discussing the effect of time-restricted feeding on systemic inflammation (Satchin Panda discussion)
  • 00:20:24 - Are frequent smaller meals or fewer large meals throughout the day better (Ruth Patterson discussion)
