When Exactly are you Supposed to Eat Anyway?

It's an excellent question, and one who's answer has varied over the years. But it's not just when you eat of course, it's more about what you eat. On this edition of Food Talk For Health, your host, Tonia King, talks with book author Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Oz Medical Director Dr. Michael Crupain about their new writing What to Eat When.  They promise it's not a diet book, but rather a guide to meals that could help you look and feel younger, or snacks that prevent diseases.  Based on science, the doctors show how what you eat when can affect your health, your energy, your sex life, your waistline, your attitude, and the way you age.

Case in point: What if eating two cups of blueberries a day could prevent cancer? If drinking a kale-infused smoothie could counteract missing an hour's worth of sleep? When is the right time of day to eat that chocolate chip cookie? And would you actually drink that glass of water if it meant skipping the gym?

What to Eat When discusses the following:
  • How food moves through our body
  • The science and benefits of intermittent fasting
  • How to nudge ourselves into eating habits that allow our body to work most efficiently
  • The 5 foods you probably aren’t eating but should
  • How their 31day Plan of Action can help us improve our food choices
In WHAT TO EAT WHEN, a groundbreaking new book about the science of nutrition timing, Drs. Roizen and Crupain show us how the food choices we make each day—and when we make them—can affect our health, energy, sex life, waistline, attitude, and the way we age. Using the latest research and their decades of experience, the doctors explain What and when to eat during the 24-hour cycle of life and What to eat when our body, mood, and circumstances change. The result: better health, weight loss, and the ability to use food to prevent disease (and in some cases, reverse it).

Dr. Roizen, the chief wellness officer of the Cleveland Clinic, and Dr. Crupain, take us through easy-to-remember guidelines on how to adjust our diet to maximize our biological rhythms and offer 30 short chapters on situational eating that guide us on how to eat, for example:

  • When we’re stressed or anxious
  • When we’re tired or hangry
  • When we’re exercising
  • When we have a family history of heart disease
  • When we have digestive distress
  • When we have a family history of cancer
