She maintains that her method doesn't "involve calorie restriction, calorie counting, macro counting, spending hours in the gym," she says.

Excess Fat Means Too Much Insulin

She adds that "some insight that I had no clue about when I started losing weight is that excess fat is actually a symptom of an underlying cause, and that underlying cause is too much insulin." "In the presence of insulin, your body's not burning fat," she points out.

"Three things that keep insulin high in our bodies are refined carbs, eating, and insulin resistance," she says.

She Eats Within an 8-Hour Period

"I'm going to focus on eating," she continues. "So, of course, we need to eat. We need to fuel our bodies, and we don't want to restrict the amount of calories that we're eating over a prolonged period of time."

Her solution? "Essentially, what I do is time restricted intermittent fasting. I just eat within an eight hour eating window in my day."

RDN Says: This Might Not Be Sustainable

Collingwood isn't a big fan of intermittent fasting for weight loss. "Just simply fasting and eating during an 8 hour time period might help you lose weight initially but over time it may be difficult to keep it off," she says. "Be careful of how much you are eating in that 8 hour window. If you aren't paying attention to what and how much you are eating you could still end up not only not losing but could even gain weight!"
