     Mike Mutzel is a returning guest who will once again share valuable research he’s done about the importance of a healthy microbiome to one’s overall health! His latest research features an inexpensive and natural way to mimic the metabolic effects that can be achieved from its more expensive, more invasive counterpart, gastric bypass surgery. He states that our bodies’ metabolic processes are directly impacted by the conditions around our guts or microbiomes. He also shares how time-restricted eating, better food quality, and sleep are influential to achieving healthy microbiomes for optimal health.
     
    “Microbiomes are indispensable in terms of optimal health.”

    Ben Azadi joins Dr. Jockers for the second time to share the 4 top secrets of how keto flex can transform your body miraculously. His book Keto Flex targets today’s most pressing concerns on rebooting metabolism, reducing inflammations, and burning all those unwanted fats by converting them into fuel for the energy you need to last the day. Ben is a coach and a best-selling author who is on a mission to transform a billion lives by reintroducing the ancient healing strategy that was forced on our ancestors from the beginning of time. He shares how the ketogenic lifestyle partnered with fasting has transformed his life and performed healing miracles to his body and teaches the concept of keto flex and why doing long-term keto may not be good for you. 
     
    “We want to teach the body how to burn fat and make it our primal fuel source but NOT the ONLY source. We want enough time to flex in and out of ketosis.”
