The Doctors are joined by husband and wife, and co-authors of the book “The Dubrow Diet”, Terry and Heather Dubrow. Heather and Terry have created a diet based on interval eating in which they claim eating certain hours of the day is the way to make your body a daily fat-burner. In this diet, when you eat is just as important as what you eat.
Heather explains that both her and Terry have had their own weight-loss journeys and experience with yo-yo dieting in the past. She says that they wanted to find a diet that was attainable and sustainable. Heather says this diet is a lifestyle choice that keeps them looking and feeling their best. She contributes it to their ageless bodies, tighter skin and better hair. Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says he’s never seen Terry look better.
Terry says the diet is based in real science. He says a recent Nobel prize in medicine was given out for the understanding that if you eat at certain time intervals and then don’t eat at others, you send yourself into a state where you preferentially break down fat and preferentially go into the process of autophagy, where your body eats up the toxins and has a lot more energy.
Heather explains that they offer three tracks to the diet depending on what your goals are. She says the book also includes food lists, guidelines, and isn’t about calorie counting and weighing your food. She adds that they do allow for those cheat moments because “a girl needs her double stuffed Oreos!”
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra asks where exercise comes into play. Terry shares that they believe in HIIT, or high-intensity interval training. This is short periods of intense exercise followed by rest.
Heather and Terry then share recipes from their book including Pad Thai Zoodles, Healthy Hawaiian Pizza, a watermelon cocktail and a dessert of honey, walnuts and yogurt. Check these recipes out here!
