Can you reverse your biological age?

I realize it may seem like Groundhog Day for you to see more prose from me about how to think about studies rather than the tactical bits we think we can immediately extract and employ from them. Just remember, it’s better to learn how to fish than to be given … you get it.

Fast-breaking without glucose spiking

As I’m coming off of a week of fasting and heading into a week of a ketogenic diet, the timing seems right to address the question of how I break a longer-term fast and the responses that some people get.
