ENCORE: How to Get Your Kids to Eat a Healthy Diet, Part 1
August 6, 2020
Health innovator Dr. Dina Rose, author of “It’s Not About the Broccoli: Three Habits to Teach Your Kids for a Lifetime of Healthy Eating,” inveighs against parents’ efforts to get kids to “just try it”. Her approach emphasizes proportion, variety, and moderation. She wants to make introducing new foods an exploration—not a contest of wills. To that end, she’s developed a unique educational tool—The Super Food Explorer Kit. Widening kids’ diet requires patience and ingenuity. Why it’s important not to resign yourself to feeding kids only a narrow range of “favorite” foods. What’s “sensory-based food education”? Why does Dr. Rose claim “nutrition is irrelevant”? Are kids’ palates hard-wired to reject vegetables and exotic foods? How do you deal with over-eaters? Is it right to reward kids with ordinarily “forbidden” foods? What’s wrong with “Finish your dinner, and then you can have dessert”? Can parents and caregivers be overly stringent, engendering backlash? How do you handle treat-laden holidays like Halloween, Easter, and Christmas? What food policies would Dr. Rose like to see changed to advance kids’ health? Click HERE for part 2.

The Benefits—and Limitations—of Intermittent Fasting, Part 1
July 21, 2020
In recognition of my recent collaboration on a review article, "Recommending Intermittent Fasting," in the "Natural Medicine Journal" with its publisher, Karolyn Gazella, I invited her on to share our research on the benefits—and limitations—of intermittent fasting, and specifically time restricted feeding (TRF). Reducing your eating window to just 8 or 10 hours a day may aid weight loss, but it does so much more: TRF has been demonstrated to reboot metabolism, provide some of the benefits of a keto diet, promote autophagy and cellular resilience, with disease-fighting and anti-aging potential. We discuss its application to metabolic syndrome and diabetes, cognitive enhancement, as an adjunct to cancer therapy, for cardiovascular prevention, as well as for inflammatory disorders. How best to implement TRF; when TRF might not be suitable; why exercise + TRF might be synergistic. Click HERE for part 2.
