Craig Emmerich graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering and had always had a systematic approach to his work. He followed his wife Maria Emmerich into the nutrition field and has since dedicated his time researching and looking at nutrition and biology from a systems perspective. Over the last eight years, he has worked with hundreds of clients alongside Maria to help them heal their bodies and lose weight leveraging their biology to make it easy.
In this episode of What The Fat, Dr. Ryan Lowery talks with Craig Emmerich about his daily eating habits, nutrient-rich foods, and how skipping dinner is ideal for intermittent fasting. Then, Craig gives his thoughts on extended fasting, “cheat days,” and the “SAD” diet experiment. Later, we learn about physiological insulin resistance, the carnivore diet, and gluconeogenesis.
