Ep. 29: Fasting, Keto, and Injuries with Exercise Physiologist Alyssa Olenick

We talked to Alyssa Olenick, also known as Little Lyss Fitness for her online fitness presence, training programs, and about her research in exercise physiology on metabolic flexibility and nutrition strategies.  Listen in to hear about proper health, fitness, and the science behind popular diet plans such as the Ketogenic diet, a high-fat, low-carb diet sometimes used to treat severe epilepsy in children, and Intermittent Fasting, which uses periods of fasting and non-fasting to control caloric intake.
