Metabolic Flexibility & The Truth About Intuitive Fasting - With Guest Dr. Will Cole

Description

Metabolic and inflammatory conditions are running rampant in the US. Conditions like obesity, heart disease, and insulin resistance seem to become more prevalent year after year. While the statistics are staggering, it’s important to note that oftentimes the most simple, natural, and innate strategies for healing are also the most effective.

On a biological level, fasting in sync with the circadian rhythm is part of how humans evolved. But with the advent of 24-hour drive thrus, delivery services, and our overall constant access to food, we’ve become far removed from the concept of fasting.
