With its roots in longevity research, the science behind fasting has continued to make impressive strides and is one of the hottest topics in nutrition today. However, there are limited evidence-based resources on the health benefits and clinical application of fasting, and more specifically, fasting mimicking diet (FMD), also known as fasting with food, for practitioners. In this presentation, the participant will learn about the origin of fasting and its connection to longevity, as well as the current clinical evidence to support fasting with food for cardiometabolic benefits.
