In this video, I bring on a new guest, a dear friend of mine, Cynthia Thurlow. She has recently come out with a new book, ‘Intermittent Fasting Transformation: The 45-Day Program for Women to Lose Stubborn Weight, Improve Hormonal Health, and Slow Aging. Some of the topics she speaks to are exercise and fasting, regulating your circadian rhythm, who should avoid fasting, reducing inflammation in the body, increasing energy levels, and what it means to fast. Let us know if you enjoyed this video, and comment about your experience with fasting!

I am super excited for the book! Enjoy both of you and your brilliance!
There is no audio?
Excellent interview! Good information. I've been intermittent fasting for years way before it was popular. I do believe in it and attest to its benefits. I agree there's a lot of mindless eating out there and it's hard for people to go without food. Many times less is more. It's really about the quality of the food you're eating such as good quality protein, good quality fats, good quality carbs like organic fruit, and proper hydration with electrolytes.
On your last video you said you were going to be responding to comments, but you never did! 😞🤷🏼♂️
I know I'm just a dude….but this a totally great and two brilliant people! I've tried to help my bride increase her protein intake. I've been doing IF thanks to Cynthia and others. I too train fasted! That took some getting used to but I make sure I hydrate (w/electrolytes).
Another great interview Dr. Lyon! Just bought Cynthia's book & yes to heavy weight training too!
On Chapter 4 of Cynthia's book and just signed up at a gym I can lift at. Bring It…
What about lemon water? Does this actually break a fast?
Hottest doctor on the tube.
Such a great discussion from two of my favourite people!😊😊 Many thanks.🙏
2 wonderfully intelligent ladies… thank you both 😊
I bought the book and I'm about 4 chapters into it. Can't wait to finish it before I start an IF journey 🙂
I’ve lost my period again, from fasting and training. I’m also 45. And this happens a lot over the years.
Dr Stacy Abrams says the opposite for women and fasting–meaning disagrees, particularly for athletes building muscle. Curious as to why the difference of opinion here.
Dr. Lyon, thank you for hosting Dr. Thurlow. I've just finished her excellent book but have one big question–for both you and her. She mentions in the book your recommendation that we eat 1 g per pound of ideal body weight per day, but she does not explain how one can do this while fasting. The menus she offers (2 meals/day) for the 45-day process do not come near providing that much protein; and to consume that much in two meals would require anyone over around 100-110 lbs to consume more protein in one sitting than you and Dr. Layman recommend (as I understand you). Plus, for my weight, eating 70 g of protein in one meal sounds overwhelming! I'd love to hear your take on this. I easily eat just two meals per day and am working on upping my protein intake–but I'm confused about this. Would love to learn more about it. Thanks.
Loved watching this !!!
I use to fast many years ago.. I’d break my fast with a fresh squeezed Orange in warm water.. then I’d eat a lot of high protein meat and mushrooms was my main veg .. I’m telling you I was feeling really good lost a lot a weight…now I’m just lazy hungry all the time have extra body fat even though I’m exercising I know my diet is bad I’d consider doing IF again because i just can’t do extreme diets anymore
Fix the volume
Yes, I don't eat past 8. I have been listening to these "pro metabolic" types who claim fasting and ketosis is too stressful on the body. That women are supposed to be a little fatter then men. Your thoughts?
