Episode 399

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the Podcast, Leah and Amber chat with Marty Kendall from Optimising Nutrition. If you are a long time listener then you will recognize Marty’s name as he has been on the podcast a few times – even as a Co-Host!

Marty discusses his new project: Data-Driven Fasting. DDF revolves around the concept of using your Blood Glucose as a fuel gauge. You just wait until your Blood Glucose level is below your personalised trigger so you know you actually need to refuel. As you chase a lower pre-meal blood sugar trigger, the fat loss follows.

  • Join DDF to receive a 145-page manual and baselining sheet.
  • The next challenge starts November 21, 2020 or  January 2,  2021.  

Marty has a new book called Big Fat Keto Lies  which is a compilation of his learnings from his adventures in low carb and keto land.  Designed to help people who might have stalled on their journey, Marty busts some lies in the Keto world by explaining common misconceptions like why eating too fat much might not be a good thing.

In this episode we look at two lies:

  •  #7 Fasting for longer is better
  •  #9 Calories Don’t count

Is fasting for longer hours better for you? Do you think Calories don’t count? Tune in to hear this and more.
