EP 196 – Intermittent Fasting as a Lifestyle with Cynthia Thurlow

We have a fantastic interview with Cynthia Thurlow today! 

Cynthia is a nurse practitioner and popular podcast host. She is also a health and wellness expert and author of the new book, Intermittent Fasting Transformation.

As a nurse practitioner, Cynthia deviated from the conventional path.

She joins Jason today to tell her fascinating story and talk about the benefits of intermittent fasting! 

This is one episode you won’t want to miss if you’re a man who wants to live a passionate, healthier, and more fulfilled life! Stay tuned for more!
