Intermittent fasting: A time to eat, a time to fast,
By Andy Hendel



Interview With Dr. Jason Fung and Gary Taubes





This month’s CrossFit Health Education webinar features Dr. Jason Fung, who will be discussing fasting as a therapeutic option for weight loss.


In preparation for the webinar, investigative science and health journalist Gary Taubes speaks with Dr. Fung about his research. Dr. Fung outlines his clinical experience with intermittent fasting — in particular how he came to use intermittent fasting in his practice despite receiving contrary recommendations from his peers and medical education. He describes the benefits of intermittent fasting to both diabetic and nondiabetic patients and explains how he implements fasting protocols on a patient-by-patient basis. This leads to a broader discussion of the metabolic impact of fasting, how these biological changes compare to those triggered by low-carbohydrate and ketogenic diets, and how hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia contribute to metabolic disease progression.


CrossFit Health Education will be hosting a live webinar with Dr. Fung this Friday, July 17, at 9 a.m. PT. The webinar has been accredited with 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.


Webinar participants will have the opportunity to interact with Dr. Fung through a live online presentation and Q&A.
