TWR 114: Creating Sustainable Change Through Intuitive Fasting with Dr. Dalton T. Comb
With a PhD in neuroscience, Dr. Dalton uses his knowledge of metabolic health and fitness to help people achieve better habits and behaviors, ultimately resulting in a better quality of life that is simple to maintain and sustainable. Dr. Dalton asserts that sustainable change requires behavioral changes.
There is so much more to metabolism than just weight loss–it affects our overall health. Research has demonstrated that people become sick and unhealthy because of metabolic dysfunction caused by their habits and behaviors. There is no doubt that people feel better when their metabolisms are working properly. One way to achieve a healthier metabolism is by intuitive fasting.
The idea behind intuitive fasting is that it tunes up your metabolism and makes you feel more connected to your body. We often respond to habitual cravings rather than our true hunger, but Dr. Dalton says we can better access our hunger signals and get back in touch with our appetite by listening to what our bodies ask for and observing how they respond to what we put in them.
If you have found yourself yo-yo dieting and falling into the mindset that you have to fix everything at once by implementing a perfect lifestyle that never seems to work for very long, this episode will give you valuable insight into why that approach hasn’t been working for you. Dr. Dalton believes we should understand why we eat, rely less on the scale for body health information, and shift our focus to behavioral changes.
