Despite its recent surge in popularity, fasting is a practice that dates back centuries and plays a central role in many cultures and religions. Many assume that fasting is a healthy activity. In some cases, this may be true, but fasting can also be deadly. Ironically, we don’t have to forego healthy food to reap the benefits.
Today, Dr. Joseph Antoun, the CEO of L-Nutra, talks about the benefits of fasting and how you can fast without starving yourself. He also talks about his company’s products and how they can help you lose weight, become healthier, and live longer without depriving yourself.
Joseph Antoun, MD, Ph.D.'s passion is to enhance human longevity by nurturing a true healthcare system alongside the current sick care system.
Dr. Antoun is the CEO and Chairman of the Board of L-Nutra, a unique Nutri-tech company leading the Food as Medicine movement by applying cutting edge Science to Nutrition research first to uncover what humans should eat to live healthier, longer and second to help patients achieve better health outcomes. Dr. Antoun served as the Chairman of the Board at the Global Healthspan Policy Institute (GHPI) and as a member of the Forbes Business Development Council.
Dr. Antoun has dedicated his professional experience to reforming health systems towards preventive care, creating a market for healthy aging by launching the first aging and longevity product called ProLon, and bringing back fasting as a longevity practice to humanity. In 2016, Dr. Antoun launched the Fasting Market, which by 2018 became the #1 nutrition regimen in the US, and continues to grow in popularity. In 2018, the Fasting Mimicking Diet was granted a patent for 'promoting longevity and healthspan.’
Dr. Antoun completed his Health Policy studies at Harvard University, Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, Medicine and Biological Sciences at Saint Joseph University, and his Ph.D. studies in Mediterranean & Middle Eastern Studies at King's College. He is married to the loveliest Carine, has three amazing boys, and stays healthy by practicing time-restricted eating, periodic fasting, and walking daily while on his phone.
