Intermittent fasting is a term that has become popularized in recent years, but the evidence often gets lost in the headline-chasing videos, blogs and posts. If you're a health coach, wellness coach or performance coach, you're likely getting a lot of questions about this topic but it's of interest to seemingly everyone. To cut through all the baloney, we sought out one of the world's most respected neuroscientists on the subject, Dr. Mark Mattson.
Dr. Mattson is a professor of neuroscience at Johns Hopkins and the Chief of the Laboratory of Neurosciences at the National Institute on Aging. His work has looked into how the brain and body respond and adapt to fasting and exercise. If there is an expert on the subject of Intermittent Fasting, Dr. Mattson is that expert. In fact, he is among the most highly cited neuroscientists in the world. To say we felt fortunate he agreed to join us for this episode would be a clear understatement.
Dr. Mattson's email address he mentions in the interview is [email protected]
