Unraveling Intermittent Fasting With Brian Gryn

Have you considered experimenting with intermittent fasting to help boost weight loss and for the overall health benefits? Brian Gryn began his research into intermittent fasting several years ago based on the results he saw with a client who was pre-diabetic and not seeing the weight training results she wanted. He was amazed with the results and decided to give it a try for himself, and the rest is history. 

Through his Integrative Institute of Nutrition education and ten years of group training/coaching, he has learned that eating can help the body heal itself. Sometimes it takes small daily changes to make the biggest impact.

He has never believed in diets or counting calories. Eating whole, real foods makes the most positive impact on the body. His goal is to find what works for you because everybody is unique. (https://briangryn.com/about/)
