The difference between time-restricted eating (TRE) and intermittent fasting | Satchin Panda

Parent Episode: Satchin Panda, Ph.D. on Time-Restricted Feeding and Its Effects on Obesity, Muscle Mass & Heart Health

Integral to the benefits associated with time-restricted eating is the concept of fasting physiology, which taps into ancient patterns of defined periods of eating and resting for the purposes of survival. The consumption, digestion, and metabolism of food produces highly reactive molecules that can damage cellular components, including DNA. Time-restricted eating, however, provides the body a much needed "down time." In this episode, Dr. Satchin Panda explains how time-restricted eating realigns the primordial rhythms of our physiology, allowing us to repair and rejuvenate our bodies.
