Ever wonder what happens to our body if we skip carbs for long periods of time?
In this episode of the Align podcast, Michael Brandt and I chat about ketogenic diet, how we can fully reap the benefits of it and where to naturally get ketones exogenously. We also chat about sugar addiction and insulin spikes, how ketones can be used both in facilitating body restoration and in keeping satiation and MCTs.
Michael Brandt is the CEO and co-founder of Healing Via Modern Nutrition (HVMN). He’s an avid triathlete and marathoner with a 2:42 personal record.
