Fasting

The Nothingburger and my favorite interview

Interesting three weeks with the “Nothingburger” experiment: one week of fasting sandwiched between two weeks of nutritional ketosis. As previously mentioned, I’ll share the results in the form of a podcast episode, where Bob will interview me in an AMA format. If you have questions about the experience or findings, please start shooting them to us (cc @bobkaplan) on Twitter. I’ve got most of the labs back and found some very interesting things, including a staggering deterioration of peripheral (but not central) thyroid function during the fast…albeit it’s an n of 1…

Unrelated, I’m quite limited in the number of podcasts I can listen to (at 2x speed, of course), so I pick and choose very carefully. This week, hell this month, the one I appreciated most was Stephen Dubner’s interview with Lance Armstrong. I have never listened to a podcast and wished, so badly, that I could have been there to ask additional questions. Dubner is a fantastic host, but the format of his show doesn’t allow for the depth (and duration) I think one could spend on this. Lance, I hope to one day interview you on my show. (I think I prob own enough Mellow Johnny’s swag to at least warrant consideration… :)) If anyone has been following the TdF, which wraps up today, I’m sure they’ve also been following The Move, which has provided—hands down—the best commentary I’ve ever heard. Chapeau, Lance…
