Ben Azadi, a functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner, speaker, and best-selling author, has become the go-to source for intermittent fasting and the ketogenic diet.

He’s also known as ‘The Health Detective’ because he’s focused on investigating health dysfunction and educating, not medicating, people to bring the body back to its normal function.

Ben comes on the show to share more about how to do just that and more.

He does this by diving into how to become metabolically flexible, why this matters, and why staying in ketosis long-term isn’t the right strategy and he shows you what to do instead.

Ben also chats about who should flex in and out of ketosis, how to do this properly, what to do if you have thyroid or hormone issues on keto, and whether too much protein will kick you out of ketosis.

You’ll also learn more about leptin resistance and why this matters, the problem with the calories in versus calories out strategy, why veggie oils should be avoided at all costs, and how to optimize the methionine and glycine ratio when you tune in.

Lastly, Ben also shows you how your oral health can impact your overall health and how this may be the missing piece of the puzzle for many people.

If you don’t know Ben, he’s the best-selling author of The Perfect Health Booklet, The Intermittent Fasting Cheat Sheet, and The Power of Sleep.

He recently published his fourth book, Keto Flex, and he shares all about this approach to keto in this episode.

In addition to being a best-selling author, Ben also hosts a top-rated podcast, known as Keto Kamp, and he created Keto Kamp Academy to help people solve their biggest health problems and restore their optimal balance.
