I am delighted and excited today to welcome Dr. David Jockers as my guest! Dr. Jockers is a doctor of natural medicine. He runs one of the most popular natural health websites, which has gotten over 1 million monthly visitors. His work has been seen on popular media such as the Dr. Oz show and Hallmark Home and Family.

He is a world-renowned expert in the area of ketosis, fasting, inflammation, and functional nutrition. He is also the host of the popular “Dr. Jockers Functional Nutrition” podcast.
Dr. Jockers was a personal trainer in his early twenties. At the time, he was taking in about 5,500 calories a day from six meals, which he thought he had to do to maintain his muscle mass. Then he developed irritable bowel and he lost about 30 pounds over two years.
After reading the book, The Maker’s Diet by Jordan Rubin, he felt inspired to make some changes to his diet. He ended up on a grain-free, low-carb diet with lots of fermented foods and grass-fed meats and got a lot better. He noticed that when he skipped breakfast and drank a lot of water, he felt significantly better, and he started re-gaining muscle mass quickly.
Dr. Jockers has been practicing intermittent fasting for sixteen years now, and it has revolutionized his life! Be sure to stay tuned today to learn more about intermittent fasting, some common fasting mistakes, and some of the lesser-known things you can do with fasting to benefit your health.
