A Toronto, Ontario-based nephrologist and clinical fasting expert Dr. Jason Fung is our guest today in Episode 1017 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
Last month, our host Jimmy Moore decided to embark on quite an ambitious new n=1 experiment--a long-term fast. Because of his low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet, doing regular intermittent fasting of 18-24 hours was pretty easy. But he didn't plan on doing just a few days, but rather he wanted to push that to a week, then two, and then pursuing three weeks to see what would happen. He ended up making it 17 1/2 days and shared his journey on his Periscope page (watch his past Periscope episodes at JimmyScopes.com). He was under the care of his Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity coauthor Dr. Eric Westman as well as today's podcast interview guest.
His name is Dr. Jason Fung from IntensiveDietaryManagement.com and he practices nephrology in Toronto, Ontario in Canada. Dr. Fung has been using various fasting protocols with his patients who are severely insulin resistant, diabetic, and obese to help them heal their body even when a ketogenic diet may not be enough. Listen in as Jimmy interviews Dr. Fung in this recent Periscope interview he did with him over Skype answering everyone's questions about this very important topic. Soak in the wisdom this man has to offer and stay tuned for a very special announcement about a joint project on this very subject between Jimmy and Dr. Fung. COMING SOON!
