EPISODE: 90  |  DATE: December 29, 2022

“You have to be able to hold a paradox when it comes to nutrition and health. Because intermittent fasting is a tool, but how that tool works or doesn’t work really is based on the person wielding the tool.”

Key Takeaways

I simply cannot believe that we’ve already come to the end of another year, but alas, here we are. And I think so many of us have some kind of health goal we’d like to carry out once the new year begins. One of the things that seems to be super popular is intermittent fasting. I invited Functional Medicine Nutritionist, Erin Holt, on the show a few months ago to talk about nutrition for women in general, and we touched on intermittent fasting but we didn’t have time to dive deeper.


Well, that’s what we’re doing today. Because Erin is back and she’s talking all about intermittent fasting. What she has to say will surely surprise you, particularly if you’ve got female physiology and you’re in your reproductive years. We cannot talk about intermittent fasting without talking about blood sugar, which do today as well. And before you go thinking, “I don’t have diabetes or insulin resistance, so why should I care about blood sugar?” let me tell you: it’s in one of – if not the key to maintaining your health and a healthy weight.


Get prepared for a fast but furious lesson in nutrition that could very well liberate you and catapult you into crushing whatever health goal you’ve got for 2023.
