Hey gang! We have a GREAT interview for you today. We go into keto, low-carb, paleo, fasting, diabetes, you name it!
Marty is an engineer whose interest in nutrition was spawned out of necessity trying to better manage his wife's Type 1 diabetes as well as his own family history of type 2 diabetes and obesity.
