Working out once a week and eating whatever, whenever and being in the best shape of your life. Sounds like a dream? It's a dream my guest today is living. Joel Greene is the creator of the VEEP Nutrition System, based on targeting gut communities to affect health and body composition. He is also the author of the groundbreaking book The Immunity Code: The New Paradigm for Real Health and Radical Anti-Aging. Joel was training intervals in the 1970's, taking MCT's in the late 80's, doing Keto in the early 90's and targeting AMPK by 2009. At age 55 he is a 100% natural athlete and works out on average once per week, eating what and when he wants. Joel is also a speaker and consultant for some of the nation's largest employers, including big cities and hospitals. Additionally he teaches functional medicine practitioners how to help their patients to dramatically slow aging and lose weight by optimizing their gut health focusing on an immune centric approach.
