When it comes to intermittent fasting, it can be incredibly beneficial for both men and women, however, it can backfire if you are burned out.

I’ve witnessed it, over and over. I want you to know how to get the benefits of successful intermittent fasting without the setbacks. That’s what I cover in this episode of How Humans Heal:

  • How to know if your stress is negatively affecting your fasting
  • How cortisol is involved and how to test for it
  • What to do BEFORE you try to extend your fast
  • How to successfully implement IF to avoid making burnout worse

In my new book, Master Your Stress, Reset Your Health, I help you to understand how your body is uniquely affected by stress, and walk you through my Stress Recovery Protocol so that you can learn to implement techniques such as IF without making yourself feel worse.
