5-day Vegan Fast (why it’s so great for your health & how to do it)

Can fasting help you live a longer, healthier life?

According to a growing amount of research, it can.

Best of all, just about ANYONE can do it.

So on this episode of The Dr. Gundry Podcast, I’m going to show you how.

Tune in to hear details about my 5-day modified vegan fast in both the Plant Paradox and Longevity Paradox books.

And don’t let the word “vegan” fool you.

You can live to a ripe old age WITHOUT completely cutting meat and dairy from your daily diet. 

So stick around. This is not an episode you’ll want to miss about the 5-day vegan fast, plus other fasting alternatives.
