Fasting for health and longevity purposes is a hot topic these days, and for good reason. The science backing up fasting as a healthy practice appears to be very sound.

But, what considerations do you need to take if you are going to try fasting? Is it as simple as just not eating for a while? Or are there some nuances you need to be aware of for your own safety and wellbeing?

On this week’s episode of the Exercise Is Health® podcast, Julie and Charlie sit down with Dr. Joseph Antoun to discuss the idea of fasting, how it can promote longevity, and what you need to know about the former to help you attain the latter.

If you have ever considered fasting – whether intermittent, extended fasting, or otherwise – listen up! This podcast contains information you are definitely going to want to hear before you start.

Check out all of the details in this week’s episode!
