And can have profound impact on bio-physical profiles, but also improved self esteem and interpersonal relationships. It is easy to implement, it is inexpensive and flexible.

I’ve lost 6.2 lbs over the past 10 days IF 16/8.
As a Dr I find this quite interesting. I would be interested in the correlations with men.
If you eat carbs before you go into your fast you will be hangry in the morning and crave breakfast. Eat fats and protein for dinner!

Does TEDx format instruct all the speakers to pace back and forth with that swagger like they are gods gift?

Fasting is not just for women...just saying.

Everyone says different things. Not sure which is right! There’s so much ambiguity 🤦🏻‍♀️

It’s hard for someone who has 8 AM classes. I tried intermittent fasting but I really couldn’t function in class.
People who challenge so called Conventional Wisdom, are my favorites. She talks so much more sense. Awesome Talk.

No wine?

Some of these things make sense but it is anecdotic. I have the feeling many of these things are going to be proven right but the only statistics are about obesity, not on the effectiveness of treatment.
I snacked as a kid all the time. The snacks were mostly junk food and I was skinny. On the other hand, I was outside running around with my friends every day.

Look, I’m completely in favor of IF...
I am wondering why this woman giving health advice was in hospital for 13 days...seems like she should’ve addressed that little snippet...
Bongani Ramatsekisa
graduated last year with a degree in Dietetics and been proudly calling myself RD(SA) and this woman just trounced everything I learnt. 4 years of studying, sleepless nights and crying and now everything I learnt is being called outdated?? This is why I will be one of the first people to volunteer to move to Mars when it is ready for habitation.
Aliens and pyramids and shit
Im going to try this for a month and i hopefully won't be a fatty by September.
Dani Luna
does anyone know whats the best time to do it? (12pm to 8pm, 2-pm to 10pm, etc)

Im 30 seconds in and my Eating Disorder is Screaming, all of those in recovery from an Eating Disorder; I know this is a Ted Talk and we often watch these in a time of distress or a time where we are seeking modivation. Ask yourself these questions before you take what she says as gospel "does this benifit my recovery" "would my team agree with this" "what does my meal plan say" etc. etc. Maybe even bringing this video to your dietitian and asking is what she is saying would beneficial for you. And if you are seeing an ED dietitian i hope that she would say that there is no benifit. Please, do yourself a favor and find something that will help you in your recovery not compromise it.
My heart goes out to you
Keto and IF go hand-in-hand. I highly recommend them both!!
Informative. But you forgot to mention the best part, autophagy!

How to die young at a very old age | Nir Barzilai | TEDxGramercy Intermittent Fasting: Transformational Technique 1 day ago   19:25

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Aging is a common risk factor for many diseases, including cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease. Rather than treating each disease separately, the most practical approach is to delay aging altogether. Learn about our efforts to help everyone die young at a very old age.

Nir is a Professor of Medicine and Genetics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Deputy Scientific Director at the American Federation for Aging Research. He has pioneered breakthrough research on the biology of aging.
