Mark, a neuroscientist at Johns Hopkins Medicine, is one of the world’s top experts on the health benefits of intermittent fasting on the brain and body.

Decades before intermittent fasting diets became popular, he began studying mouse models to understand how the brain adapts to challenges like fasting and exercise. He and his research teams have shown that fasting can improve cognitive function and metabolic health. See some of his current research in the New England Journal of Medicine on how fasting can help people live longer.

"Intermittent fasting and exercise can reverse diabetes, and obesity in humans if a person can switch their eating pattern, and get on an exercise program,” Mark says.

His work on intermittent fasting has been featured on national media and he has given a TED Talk, “Why Fasting Bolsters Brain Power”.

Enjoy the show!
