Steve Hendricks: Fasting for longevity

Of all the lifestyle interventions that could help us live longer and better, fasting has been hailed by some as the holy grail of health. 

It comes in many – and somewhat confusing – forms.  
From time restricted eating to intermittent fasting and longer term food deprivation, fasting has a long and fascinating history.  

Steve Hendricks is a freelance journalist and the author of The Oldest Cure in the World, Adventures in the Art and Science of FastingThe book attempts to put into perspective what we know about fasting, how realistic a “cure” it is for some conditions and whether it is a practical option to fight disease and live longer.

Shownotes available at the LLAMA podcast website and YouTube, where you can subscribe to all of LLAMA's interviews.
