Endocrinologist Dr. Brian DeBosch talks about his research into the effects of intermittent fasting and the latest evidence about how the amount and frequency of our eating affects the way our bodies process food and our overall health.

Top 3 Take-Aways:

  1. Carbs signal to your brain whether you’re in a fasting state (to burn existing fat) or a fed state.
  2. 16 hours is the ideal length of time for your body to switch into ketogenesis when your body will use stored fat to power the brain and the body.
  3. Intermittent fasting can benefit more than just weight.
