In today’s podcast, I interview Dr. Bret Scher about a heart-healthy diet and lifestyle. We’re covering much more than diet–we’re busting myths about stents, fat phobia, dairy, and other lifestyle choices as they relate to strengthening your heart and keeping it beating. Ever wondered about the best fats to eat and cook with, if eating keto is good for your heart, or the lowdown on fasting mimicking diets? The Low Carb Cardiologist gives his take on this and so much more in this brand new podcast.
