In today’s episode, we discuss the integral role of sleep, particularly for women, in maintaining insulin sensitivity and overall health, emphasizing that sleep is often neglected but critically affects metabolic health. We explore a study revealing that even mild sleep deprivation can worsen insulin resistance without affecting body weight and also delve into optimal timing for exercise. We address the misconception that OMAD (one meal a day) dinners are superior and share resources for improving fasting strategies and sleep hygiene. Lastly, we announce upcoming changes to the podcast to enhance listener support and their mission to combat obesity and diabetes with a fasting lifestyle.
