Intermittent fasting, consuming meals within a strict window of time, is quickly becoming a popular topic of discussion.

But what does intermittent fasting mean to you? Is it a restrictive and unsustainable diet, or is it a sensible and healthy way to eat? Can it be maintained long term? What are the benefits and risks of fasting and what effect does it have on your body and your brain? Does it necessarily help with weight loss?

On this week's episode of the Stronger podcast, we are joined by Dr. Steven Gundry, bestselling author of The Plant Paradox and a long-time practitioner of intermittent fasting. Dr. Gundry explains his specific way of following an intermittent fasting lifestyle, and makes it clear there isn't a one-size-fits-all method.

For example, Dr. Gundry allows wine as part of his diet — and even adapts his way of intermittent fasting for weekends and special occasions. Dr. Gundry, a preeminent heart surgeon, also goes into how important what you eat is within the parameters of the diet — including the relationship between the keto diet and intermittent fasting, and why the two often go hand-in-hand.
