Download the Slides

Only 8% of Americans are metabolically flexible. In the face of this growing health crisis, more and more people are utilizing intermittent fasting as a strategy that provides substantial health benefits. As a result, it is becoming increasingly more popular within conventional medicine. Fasting is a form of hormesis, beneficial stress, that provides multiple health benefits when used in the right amount and at the right time—and needs to be used judiciously in consideration of life stage and gender. Nutritional choices are a critically important component to success with fasting. Focusing on the right combination of macronutrients and removing inflammatory foods yields the best benefits.
