Based in Toronto, he graduated medical school in internal medicine at the University of Toronto prior to finishing his nephrology fellowship at the University of California – Los Angeles.

He explains how the body actually works – on a mental and biological level – during a fasting period, as well as how the benefits and risks compare to traditional calorie restricted diets. “If you have a plate of brownies, or if you have a salad with salmon, they could be the same number of calories – but what they do to your body is completely different.” – Dr. Jason Fung

063 - Keto for Women (and Men) with Shawn Mynar

Today’s guest is Shawn Mynar, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP™), Restorative Wellness Practitioner, Certified Personal Trainer, Real Food Foodie, and Passionate Health Seeker! She grew up with the standard American diet until finding out she had an autoimmune disease, ulcerative colitis (UC) in 2008. Through experimenting and changing her nutritional approach, she healed herself through a ketogenic approach. She is now thoroughly versed in issues related to autoimmune disease and numerous other disorders. She hosts the Keto for Women podcast which consistently ranks as a top podcast in Fitness and Nutrition on I-tunes. Top takeaways Don’t fear GOOD FATS. You need to increase your fat significantly to ensure you become ketogenic. You need to moderate protein to stay ketogenic. Too high protein is a very common mistake. Toxins are stored in fat so you need to choose high quality cuts of meat. You can’t go ketogenic with subpar foods – you can but you shouldn’t. This is Keto for Health. Use blood ketones to fine tune ketosis. Test for information. When you feel great, test to find out optimal ketone levels. Get the specific number. Be in ketosis for 3-5 weeks before you intermittent fast. Check out the video version @ YouTube - https://youtu.be/nrYtxNCxQsE
