Welcome Back! I'm about to takeoff to Hawaii to work on the Food Lies film with the amazing Director, Jay. I got to do this podcast in person with the very awesome Mike Mutzel AKA Metabolic Mike. We ran outside to feed his backyard chickens and pigs and then got the mics going.


Mike Mutzel has an MS in clinical nutrition and currently focuses his efforts on communicating the science behind longevity, fasting, ketosis, exercise and all things pertaining to improving our metabolic health
