—————————————–Show Notes————————————–

00:00 Intro
04:00 Intermittent fasting is a good solution for stubborn fat.
04:15 Your diet has to work for you for the long run: psychologically, biologically and sociologically.
06:38 Fat is a complex endocrine organ, like the thyroid and adrenal glands.
06:56 Fat produces critical hormones that your body depends upon, like leptin.
07:03 When you lose fat you get lower levels of leptin, which binds with your hypothalamus and your skeletal muscle.
07:55 When skeletal muscle notices less leptin, it burns fewer calories.
09:48 Your genetics may cause you to have to work harder to keep off or lose weight.
10:15 Viruses, age, gender and hormones impact weight. Our fat busting hormones decline with age.
14:00 How your body responds to a food is individual.
14:50 Prolonged overnight fasting prolongs the effects of fat buster, growth hormone.
15:12 With intermittent fasting you get more glucagon, more leptin (so you feel more satiated), and more willpower for making better choices.
16:35 Staying low calorie all day never gives you a sense of satisfaction, leading to increased failure of diet.
19:14 Subcutaneous fat is under your skin. Visceral fat, under the stomach wall, leads to problems with the immune system, diabetes, and heart disease. Brown fat burns calories during cold exposure and beige fat that can turn into brown.
19:42 Visceral fat cells become hypoxic, sending signals of duress and your immune system responds with inflammation, which interferes with insulin signaling.
20:50 Fat releases adiponectin which guides the fat you eat and the fat you release to the right places in your body; to be stores as subcutaneous rather than visceral.
21:22 Sumo wrestlers have subcutaneous fat, not visceral. They exercise 6 – 7 hours per day, releasing higher levels of adiponectin.
22:13 About 2 hours of aerobic activity per day can move your fat to the right areas.
23:30 To see if you have visceral fat, lay on your back and a paunch on your stomach stays there, that is visceral fat.
25:35 Ancestral famines create a thrifty genotype which causes you to hold fat for later.
29:30 Viruses can make animals fat. Some cross into humans.
38:10 You need to be in the right mindset to lose weight.
40:50 HIIT in the evening while fasting busts through weight loss plateaus for Dr. Tara.
41:25 Temptation bundling: Bring something pleasurable into your workout to enhance your ability to create a habit.
43:48 A habit is more reliable than willpower. Reducing the number of decisions you make during the day reduces decision fatigue.
44:16 Successful dieters can get back on their diet the next day. Perfect isn’t the goal.

  1. Doing fasting and keto, losing weight and feeling great. I won't be keto forever but I'll just make low carb choices and sometimes carb stuff once I hit my goal

  2. So is berberine in general ok to take while fasting then eating 1-2 hrs later? Is tour Myoscience berberine w AlA and biotin also fine to take still in a fasted state as well?

  3. My leptin was undetectable on a lab test in november 2019…. I thought nothing of it. A few months later I had binged 30 lbs on, I blamed covid but I had undetectable leptin before that. So I can't completely blame covid lockdown. In August I returned to keto and then carnivore. Lost even more weight. Went from 141 and lost 30 lbs and then some all the way down to 105 lbs. But then I started to have a huge uncontrollable appetite. leptin? Again undetectable. Put 10 lbs back on. 🙁 Definately will buy her book.

  4. Mike. It usually seems personal when I listen to you. It is like you are speaking just to me. However at the end of this video you mention your listeners driving or walking their dog. I got scared. I was driving my dog for a walk. Had to check to see if my camera and mic were on. Guess not.

  5. So if you train daily cardio/resistant training with IF and low carb/high protein mod fat diet ur in a good position against visceral fat?

  6. Keto is the only way my body can handle food. I ate really good food but it was the dairy and fruit that caused me to be 85 pounds overweight. I cut carbs down to 25 grams per day, cut fruit and weight fell off along with having clean bloodwork. 2 years now and holding steady without even thinking about it. Dr. Sylvia is gorgeous, thanks for having her on.

  7. I do intermittent fasting and it works for me and I find it easier to skip a meal here and there and not eat too close to bedtime. I find it much easier than counting calories and the fact that the body heals itself while sleeping encourages me to eat at least five hours before retiring for the night.

  8. What's the point to say" every people are different". Some people 6'10" can play professional basketball, some people can't. You just deal with it.
    That's all useless nonsense. In 1960, there were not even one obese people in China. In 1800, very very few obese people all around the world. So, where were the obese gene then ?

  9. Covid-19 virus is also blamed for people gaining weight but is it because people are being indoors with less exercise eating more or because it could work the same that the virus in the rooster 🐔 ?

  10. You can't be serious. There is a history of famine throughout history for all peoples. There is recent history of famine in Caucasians as well. How dull to draw that distinction. There is definitely a difference between individuals and groups with respect to genetic predispositions and abilities. Just ignorant to paint the picture that way.

  11. I agree its not easy u have
    To be mentally ready to go
    To war with your subconscious
    Which is like fighting Goliath
    And your David……keep trying until u succeed
    failure is part of process …..its not easy but
    That makes the end result
    Worth it
