In this episode I interviewed Cynthia Thurlow. She is a nurse practitioner and functional nutritionist who has such an awesome story to share, both about her own health journey, and also how to started her own business to help other women learn how to lose weight and prevent disease. 

She has a TEDx talk that has over 12 million views on YouTube about the benefits of intermittent fasting. Cynthia focuses a lot on intermittent fasting with her clients and course members. We talk a lot about the benefits of fasting and how to incorporate it into your lifestyle. 

Aside from being a 2x TEDx speaker, she has been published in multiple online blogs and has a podcast called Everyday Wellness that was just named as a top 20 podcast that will help you grow in 2020. She is the author of Intermittent Fasting Transformation
