Losing weight is a popular new year's resolution. Holistic physician Dr. Tom Cowan makes a strong case for why we should aim for getting healthier, rather than just hitting a particular number on the scale. That said, in today's episode, he offers practical ideas for how to meet both goals: weight loss and good health. He and his patients have benefited from his protocol that includes intermittent fasting, movement, and a balanced diet.

He goes into particular detail about fasting. He discusses how it stimulates weight loss, how to approach it as a beginner, how long and how often you should fast, and more.

Dr. Cowan also gets into the science behind the macronutrients our bodies need: fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. He explains how to approach a low-carb diet and the role of insulin in weight gain and fat storage in the body. He explains how a balanced diet can lead to more focus, better energy, and protection from diseases like Alzheimer's and cancer.

It's a fascinating discussion that will give you practical take-aways for a strong, healthier new year.
