Episode Date
Fasting Q&A: Coffee Creamers, Pregnancy and Breastfeeding, Mental Health, and Sweeteners
29:27
Episode #10

In this Fasting Q&A episode, Megan and Nadia answer your fasting questions:

1. Is unsweetened almond/coconut creamer in coffee enough to break a fast or interfere with fat-burning mode during a 36 to 42 hour fast? Or does it depend on the amount used? [00:58]

2. Hi guys! I’m so happy about your new podcast I’m a big fan of your program! I was wondering if you have more information about fasting for nursing moms or even pregnancy. Is it safe? Would it effect milk production? [03:46]

3. What are the benefits seen with fasting and mental health? I feel mentally well when I’m fasting compared to eating frequently and poorly. What science can I tell myself regarding this topic? [07:19] 

4. What do you think about chewing xylitol gum to improve fasting breath? Does xylitol trigger insulin? Please rank honey, maple syrup and xylitol for use during my 10-6 eating window days. [14:40]

Fasting Q&A: Flavored Coffee, Feeling Cold, Menstruation, and Switching Up Your Fasts
45:42

Episode #9

In this Fasting Q&A episode, Megan and Nadia answer your fasting questions:

1. I find that drinking black regular/unflavoured coffee is hard (on my stomach as well as well as on my stamina!!!) but I find it easier to drink black flavored coffee so that I don't have to add milk to it which would be my preference. By flavored, I mean the beans are flavoured (the company says that even their flavored coffees have only 5 calories in a cup of coffee). I do not add flavored syrups. Is it OK to drink flavored coffee or does it break my fast? [01:36]

2. Fasting during menstrual cycle? [22:45]

3. Feeling so cold during a fast that it stops you continuing. [14:18] 

4. Since I’m not losing weight on the 16:8 fasts after two months, I want to start 24 hours of fasting. What will happen in, let’s say a year, when I hopefully lose weight and get off some meds and go back to just 16:8. Will I regain the weight and will 24 hours of fasting be a lifetime thing?  [33:49]

Fasting Q&A: Ending an Extended Fast, OMAD, Keto and Low-Carb, and More
33:27

Episode #005

In this Fasting Q&A episode, Megan and Nadia answer your fasting questions:

1. When should you end an extended fast? [00:30]

2. I am starting a 30:16 cycle and hope to move onto a 3x42. I have about 10 pounds more to lose. I feel very satisfied with one meal a day and 800 calories, but I am concerned that I might damage my metabolism if I go very long on OMAD (one meal a day). Is that something that is OK or should I make sure I get more calories 3 or 4 days a week? [09:08]

3. When doing one-meal-a-day, how much should you eat and/or how long should you eat? [17:50]

4. When it is said, “Intermittent fasting is not about diet,” why are we told to do keto or low-carbohydrate diets? [24:56]

Introducing The Fasting Method Podcast
29:13

In today's episode, we share our journey from illness to being able to help the people we work with lose weight and reverse the chronic and "incurable" type 2 diabetes.

Truth be told, we started this podcast because there is so much misinformation out there about intermittent fasting. Today our team at The Fasting Method has worked with over 16,000 adults worldwide helping them achieve sustainable weight loss and improve blood glucose levels through various fasting strategies and real, whole-food nutrition principles. We believe we have a responsibility to bust these fasting myths and set the record straight.

And we're not just practioners of fasting; it's saved our lives. We've struggled with obesity, type 2 diabetes, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and fatty liver disease. We were able to take the lessons we learned throughout our own journeys and apply them, first to our clincial practice and then to our online community, and now we want to bring them to you in this podcast.
