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 use to have sore back and legs but I try my diet it’s ok now.but I watch your one I think to my self I want to do it.

      I love the stories! What I don’t understand is why anyone would ever follow FODMAP unless they had a medical issue. I have Crhone’s and when in flare up using Fodmap as a guide really helps. It basically helps you identify what your food triggers are and avoid them. But it’s not something that would aide in weigh loss. What I loved about this podcast was the message that there are no quick fixes! Consistency is King!

        Yes, and for some FODMAP doesn’t even work with a vegan diet. There is no 1 size fits all approach, we all work differently within our own bodies. I’m glad you’re able to use that knowledge to control your flares, they can absolutely be so intense! Consistency is in everything we do, it’s the cornerstone to success xoxoxo

    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
