Description

The proposed benefits of intermittent fasting read like a laundry list of “look better,” “feel better,” “live longer” changes. That's why intermittent fasting is gaining tremendous popularity in online circles. Advocates are vocal and persuasive. But is this style of eating for you, or your clients? In this session, John discusses all aspects of the practice of intermittent fasting, recounts his experiments with half a dozen different protocols, and shares some key takeaway messages.
