3. Is Intermittent Fasting Key to Heath?

Podcast: 40-Min Listen

If you're already convinced, then also check out our own article on how adding a daily scoop of collagen to your feeding periods will enhance your results from fasting.

5. Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Foods

Book: 470 Pages

Deep Nutrition is a self-published success by biochemist Cate Shanahan, M.D. In this book, Cate examines today's top nutrition trends from the Mediterranean, Okinawa, and Paleo. From here she pulls our four main nutritional strategies that consistently lead to “strong, healthy, intelligent children, and active, vital elders, generation after generation.

Another great argument that family genetics do not have to determine your health in the long-term. If you’re interested in discovering a way to eat that is less about restriction and more about health, Deep Nutrition is for you. Get it here
