Dr. Nishant Rao Discusses the 8-Hour Diet Intermittent Fasting Window for Weight Loss

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 01:00:00 EDT

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - March 29, 2017) - The 8-Hour Diet, created by David Zinczenko tries to utilize a simple diet concept referred to as 'the feeding window.' The diet limits eating to within an 8-hour period which then followed by a 16-hour fasting window within a 24-hour period. The theory is based around intermittent fasting, which is a popular diet technique based on the premise that the human body runs optimally after a period of rest and repair in which the gut is not digesting food. Calorie counting is not adhered to on this diet, though Zinczenko does suggest that portion size should be controlled. There are no forbidden foods on the diet and aside from consuming low-calorie drinks, an individual can eat whatever they choose as long as it remains within their 8-hour window. Also permitted but not required is Zinczenko's 8-minute fat burning exercise program.

Diet Doc Patients Lose Weight Fast With Custom Paleo Diet And Effective Emotional Eating Medication

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 01:00:00 EDT

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - March 27, 2017) - Almost 80 million Americans are obese, with many more overweight. Fighting issues like type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, these individuals are suffering from poor lifestyle choices and unhealthy diets. Excessive weight gain often results from inactive lifestyles and extreme food dependence, or food addiction, which makes it nearly impossible for people to avoid certain types of food despite the health risks. It is not at all uncommon for people to lose control and excessively consume tasty but fattening foods like sweets and processed snacks. In many cases, emotional eating is part of the equation as well. Emotional eating involves eating unhealthy snacks or too much food when one is emotionally stressed or challenged. Excessive hunger between meals and uncontrollable cravings for unhealthy food are also common. These prevalent issues make maintaining a reliable and healthy diet quite challenging.
