Brad Pilon (@bradpilon) is the author of Eat Stop Eat, How Much Protein, and Good Belly Bad Belly. His newest book is Thin Air, which is all about how our air quality, C02 levels, and environment affect our lives.
Unlike most authors, Brad conducts his research and tests what he teaches. After releasing one of the first intermittent fasting guides and a detailed study of how fasting can not only lead to improved health but fat loss and muscle gain, he was labeled as the fasting guy before it took mainstream.
In this interview, we break down a lot more than fasting and dive into the environment and how it affects overall health.
