High Intensity Health with Mike Mutzel, MS

Three physician athletes and I got on stage in Vancouver, BC this past fall to discuss what is and isn’t working when it comes to building muscle and burning fat from an evidence-based perspective. Food quality and time-restricted feeding are big themes that kept coming up in this discussion.
