EP115: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Fasting

How to use fasting to lower Type 2 Diabetes and obesity risks.

Fasting is a term which is on the cover of just about every fitness magazine these days, but the corresponding article offers very little information about what fasting really is and what the benefits are. Drew believes facts are better than fluff so he reached out to the world’s leading fasting expert and author of The Complete Guide to Fasting, Dr. Jason Fung. Dr. Fung works with patients who have type 2 diabetes and obesity-related issues. During this episode, Dr. Fung shares the history of fasting, how to make fasting a part of a healthy lifestyle and some facts and figures commonly omitted by the fitness industry.
