"I just kept running into people that were asking about it, asking about it, asking about it, and I had a sales background. I'd always wanted to start my own thing. Just didn't know what that would be."

This is Zach Mathews's story...
Zach Mathews was a student athlete his entire life until he got his first job in ticket sales for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He realized he had gained weight and tried different fad diets and workout programs, but nothing stuck. His sales manager told him about intermittent fasting and he stayed up all night learning about it. He tried it the next day and lost 20 pounds in three months. He has been intermittent fasting for 5 years and recently decided to pursue it full time. There are many benefits to intermittent fasting, including weight loss, more consistent energy levels, better focus and cognition, and reduced inflammation. The downsides to intermittent fasting include the misunderstanding that it is a cure all and that it is the only thing you need to do to lose weight.
In this episode, you will learn the following:
1. The benefits of intermittent fasting for weight loss, brain function, and overall health.
2. The importance of understanding intermittent fasting before trying it.
3. The difficulty of starting intermittent fasting and the temptation to break the fast.
