Does Intermittent Fasting work for Weight Loss, or is it just a Fad? Episode 36


What do training dogs, bringing up children, and diet fads all have in common? Proof that there are no shortcuts to long-term success. Over the years there’s been no shortage of fashionable diets – Keto, Paleo, Intermittent Fasting, FODMAP – they come, they go, they rarely work in the long-term. And yet we keep trying the latest ones. In today’s show, I reveal the good, the bad, and the WTF of diet fads, and give you 5 essential tips (ones that actually work) to replacing all of them.

    Hi Kim
    I love your philosophy and approach to health but I do need to express my frustration with you labeling FODMAP as a fad diet.
    ‘Low’ FODMAP is not a diet fad for weight loss and certainly not ‘fashionable’ – It is a 3 step diet used to help manage the symptoms of medically diagnosed irritable bowel syndrome and is backed by Evidence – from Monash University in Melbourne.

    I speak from experience as an IBS sufferer and can tell you I’d far rather follow a regular diet if I had the choice.

      I apologise! I admit, I do not know much about it other than members of my program ask often have I tried it, and what my thoughts are. Glad it has worked for you. 🙂

    I loved this weeks episode. Really makes you think about long term results rather than quick fixes which is what everyone wants. I can’t wait for your butt program to be released not long now just 4 more days woo hoo

    It’s the 1st podcast of yours that I’ve listened to and it most certainly won’t be the last ! Love your accent and love your “don’t give a f%!}£€} , no nonsense views and attitude towards Health and fitness and those that are striving for it. I have been guilty of looking for those quick fixes for sure but only now , at 39 years old, am I realizing balance is key and results don’t come quick nor easy. If only I knew then what I know now. Thanks again Kim x
