Food Out Loud: Keto, Intermittent Fasting, and Grass Fed Butter Coffee

On this episode of Food Out Loud, I interview Mark Yu, co-founder of the keto-friendly, butter coffee brand, Grass Fed Coffee. We discuss our experience with the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting. Mark tested this diet and lifestyle on himself and after losing 45 pounds in just four months, he simply became a believer.

At this point, you should have heard about the ketogenic diet, unless you’re in a carb-induced food coma. Contrary to popular belief this diet is not about weight loss and it is not new. The roots of the ketogenic diet go back to the 1920s as a treatment for epilepsy and recently has re-emerged as a performance diet for the mind and body.

Intermittent fasting’s effect on chronic diseases like diabetes, is nothing short of astonishing. Fasting is of course not new with roots in most if not all major religions. Maybe we are rediscovering something here?

In America, we are struggling with obesity and as a result: our health. We have to take a look at what we are eating because the current American diet seems to be out of whack.

I will be talking a lot about the American diet in depth on this show because there is a lot of information to study and misinformation to debunk. I am also experimenting with my diet along the way. So, let’s get the conversation started!
