"I Have a Question!" [57:27]
Today's questions from our Patreon supporters:
- Lawrence - Is there evidence for avoidance of any of the macronutrients being more important during an overnight and morning fast? For context: I stop eating at 6 pm and don’t eat again until 9 or 10 in the morning. But I do have some cream or half & half in my coffee at 6 am. Is that ‘cranking up’ any metabolic machinery that it would be better not to? Would sugar be worse?
- James - Is there an imagined evolutionary argument for why it is that TRF is beneficial for health? How much of this appears to rest mechanistically on autophagy?
- Kyla - Are there any considerations on how much or how long to engage in a fast or TRE window based on gender?
