“Look at intermittent fasting as a thoughtful way to understand and be proactive of how you want to consume and eat food.”
— Geoffrey Woo

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Geoffrey Woo. Geoffrey works closely with researchers at Oxford University and professional athletes to further our understanding of ketosis and human performance. A former computer scientist, he applies a systems engineering mindset to nutrition & performance you don't often see in the space. He's been in Forbes 30 under 30, he has sold Silicon Valley company at age 23, he is author of 2 US Patents, he has published various scientific papers, and much more.

I wanted to have Geoffrey on the show because we've talked about ketosis, fasting, and other things like that, but we've never talked about the extremes. For example, exogenous ketones, what happens in the body during ketosis, or whether you should be going into ketosis if you are just the average human being.

So, I wanted to dive deeper and really get a feel for whether or not this is applicable to real humans. I think I got some really good answers, I certainly learned a lot about ketosis and fasting, and it really doubled down my motivation to fast more, both intermittently and in extended fasts, and to try out some new things.

I really enjoyed this episode, and I'm sure you will as well!

    I have never left a review for any Podcast yet. This is a 5 Star Podcast for sure.

    I have listened to almost all of your Podcasts from Episode 1. I am sad hear you are ending it at 300 and I haven’t actually heard the reason why.

    I have enjoyed Jonathan’s evolution as a host and the eye opening information I have gleaned over the years. Introductions to people like Dave Asprey, Hal Elrod and Steven Gundry to name a few have helped me grow and understand several things much better. Trying out their products has been fun as well.

    I didn’t always agree with some of the viewpoints and information presented here, like psychedelics in treatment of PTSD for example, but have come to understand more and more with the help of this and other information sources of how much an open mind into these ideas may help many sufferers in the long run. And I often suggest things to people as a result of this openmindedness.

    Every episode ha something to be learned and I am sure I’ll refer back in the future. I wish Jonathan much happiness in the coming Daddydom and hope for nothing but great things for his wife and growing family and the extended company family.

    Here’s hoping you restart in the future but enjoy the time with the important people in your life.
