Why does timing of eating matter for your health and weight loss?

March 9, 2022
Ready to finally lose that stubborn body fat? The timing of eating matters. What we eat and when we eat are both key factors in losing weight, balancing hormones and reclaiming our health.

Our food choices AND the timing of eating both play significant roles in our weight loss and our health. There’s a lot of talk in popular culture about WHAT to eat. What about WHEN to eat?

First, I’ll give you a brief snapshot of an upcoming Timing of Eating program. Then we’ll dive into some juicy exploration around why timing matters.

Why does the timing of eating matter?


What you eat and when you eat it has far-reaching ripple effects in your body. I discuss this at length in the FREE ebook Timing Matters.

Your food choices build your body, quite literally. We build 300 million new cells, each minute of every day. We build them with oxygen, water and FOOD. 

While there’s not much variety in oxygen choices or water choices, there’s enormous variety in food choices. This, as you might imagine, can work in your favor, or not, depending on what you choose. Important stuff.

Meanwhile, the timing of eating affects your metabolism and energy. It also affects your hormones. Most importantly, the hormone insulin. Insulin is a fat-storing hormone and when our cells become insulin resistant, we start to gain weight like it’s our JOB, especially around our midsection.

The best way to reverse insulin resistance? A Food Sass® Lifestyle combined with intermittent fasting. A Food Sass® Lifestyle is building intention and habits around eating whole, nutrient-dense foods, 80% of the time. Intermittent fasting is an umbrella term for the many ways there are to alternate our fast:eat cycle. Let’s explore.


Fear of fasting, plus the real deal


The word “fasting” freaks many people out, because they equate it with starvation. In truth, any time you’re not eating, you’re fasting. Eat breakfast at 9am and lunch at 1pm? That’s a 4-hour fast. Eat dinner at 6pm and eat breakfast at 7am the next day? That’s a 13-hour fast.

And, most any discussion on the timing of eating will lead to a discussion about 16:8 intermittent fasting (IF). Fast during 16 hours of your day and eat during an 8-hour window. There are good reasons for that, and here’s the real deal. 

The top 5 benefits of 16:8 IF are:

  1. Balance insulin and blood sugar
  2. Lose belly fat
  3. Boost energy and metabolism
  4. Reduce inflammation
  5. Ignite cellular regeneration

This isn’t simply my personal experience, or even the experience of the participants who have done my 28toGreat™ Program. Although I/they DID experience all of that awesomeness. A growing body of research, from notables like Harvard and New England Journal of Medicine, also supports the list of benefits above.

Once we understand how meal timing, food choices and insulin are connected, we are empowered to eat for health AND enjoyment. You can learn more about our insulin cycle in this blog post.
