Intermittent fasting is a powerful tool for weight loss, improving metabolic health, and optimizing longevity. Although this topic has gained popularity in recent years, there’s still some confusion when it comes to how to do it correctly and apply it to your life in a way that’s sustainable for you and your health goals.
This week on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with health and fitness educator Thomas DeLauer to discuss the myths, nuances, and benefits of intermittent fasting for metabolic health. They discuss how to adopt a fasting practice that’s sustainable, the do’s and don’ts of fasting for weight loss, who would benefit the most and the least from 16:8 fasting, Thomas’s journey with intermittent fasting and how it helped him lose over 100 pounds, and so much more.
Thomas DeLauer is an expert in diet, nutrition, and all things intermittent fasting. He reaches more than 15 million viewers monthly through his YouTube channel, where he takes the latest evidence-based nutrition information and combines it with his personal weight-loss experience to create educational videos with actionable tips for his community of 3.4 million subscribers. Thomas is best known for breaking down complex and nuanced health topics into simpler terms for his audience and for his open mindset toward challenging his own beliefs in the field of diet and nutrition.
Thomas’s 100-pound weight-loss transformation ultimately led him to take what he’s learned to help others take back their health too. He believes that we all possess the ability to create the best versions of ourselves by optimizing our understanding and application of fitness, nutrition, and mindset.
