“Most Americans are stuck in this carbohydrate burning model, and that’s where we start to see weight loss resistance, feeling hangry, lack of energy.”

“You have to stop snacking because that will force you to readjust your macros, your protein, fat, and carbohydrates, with your meals — and this is like ripping off a bandaid.”

“Men usually have an easier time with fasting because they’re not dealing as much hormonal flux week to week, day to day, like menstruating women or women that are still getting a menstrual cycle every month”

“We are not just mini men — we have a lot of differences in our hormones, physiology and anatomy.”
