Hey guys,

This is the 3rd episode where we explore the topic of Intermittent Fasting. 

While in episodes 007 and 009 we talked about all the fundamentals and main things that you need to know when starting to fast intermittently, in episode 010, we answer deeper, more specific questions, that will really deepen your knowledge on Intermittent Fasting.

My guest today is Megan J. Ramos, who is a clinical researcher and kidney specialist, that together with her colleague and renown kidney and diabetes specialist, Dr. Jason Fung, help people to fight diabetes and prolong their health-span.  

What's in this episode?

  • Why Fasting and Ketogenic Diet became so popular?
