An out of control appetite is the nemesis of many would-be dieters with high hopes for losing weight and improving their health. But for Dr. Bert Herring, MD from BertHerring.com, he understands why people overeat and is now seeking to help patients correct this problem. Dr. Herring is best known for his book on intermittent fasting entitled The Fast-5 Diet and the Fast-5 Lifestyle (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 503). But in his latest book AC: The Power of Appetite Correction, Dr. Herring gives practical guidelines based on conversations with his “Fast-5ers” for correcting the appetite disorder that is leading to overconsumption of food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Herring talk about why he wanted to write a follow-up book to his Fast-5 program, why eating in such a way to turn down appetite is key, the tools he created to help correct the appetite, the hormones involved in appetite and why they’re not as important as you might think, how cortisol can bring on intense hunger, how stress raises cortisol which increases insulin that can make you hungry, why you should expend a little work into making your food to respect the process, how he uses the acronym AC to adjust the thermostat of your body, his thoughts on extended fasts up to 3 days long, why each person needs to customize the fast that works for them, the “dark stigma” that still exists with fasting, why he’s not a fan of fasts longer than a few days without medical supervision, when he believes it’s possible to go “too far” in your fasting efforts, nature’s natural mechanisms to control appetite in the animal kingdom, the intense pull of food advertising, how our bodies are like the Stone Age even though our culture is not, and how we the consumers are the “product” of the television commercials.
