Hey everyone, welcome back. I have a great one this week. Dr. Mindy and I had a really fun discussion while she also dispensed a lot of useful info. We covered the science and benefits of fasting in great detail along with all kinds of tips and tricks for pulling short and long fasts off successfully. We also talk about how healthy periods of time spent not eating are. This should not be considered fasting - it should just be normal. What’s not normal is eating from when you wake up until you go to sleep. We covered a lot on the gut microbiome and immune health as well. You’re going to love her. Dr. Mindy Pelz is empowering people all over the world to believe in their body’s own healing abilities through fasting, diet variation, removing chemicals from the body, and so much more. Dr. Mindy is a recognized leader in the alternative health world and is the founder of Family Life Wellness, her local clinic that is made to speed up healing and maximize performance. She is also the founder of the Reset Academy, a private group where she and her team help people implement the principals of fasting, keto, and diet variation into their daily lives. She is the host of one of the leading science podcasts, The Resetter Podcast, and the author of three best-selling books, The Menopause Reset, The Reset Factor, and The Reset Kitchen. She also has a great youtube channel. Alright, so the announcements for this week are simple. We have the Sapien Tribe lifetime memberships available for a bit longer at the deeply discounted rate.
