What time to start eating when doing time-restricted eating | Satchin Panda

Parent Episode: Dr. Satchin Panda on Practical Implementation of Time-Restricted Eating & Shift Work Strategies

Time-restricted eating is a form of daily fasting wherein the time of the day during which a person eats is limited to an 8- to 12-hour daytime window of eating, with a 12- to 16-hour period of fasting. This easy-to-practice form of fasting is suitable for healthy people at nearly all ages. Breaking the fast typically occurs early in the morning, coinciding with the human body's highest insulin response. Consequently, people who break their fast later, such as midday, might not get the same metabolic benefits associated with time-restricted eating as someone who breaks their faster earlier. In this clip, Dr. Satchin Panda discusses the questions surrounding the issue of when to break a fast and describes how time-restricted eating can be a healthy lifestyle behavior for nearly everyone.
