Quotes by Vanessa Spina

“Keto and intermittent fasting are so perfectly matched.”

“People can incorporate a protein sparing modified fast day into their week.”

“You are triggering muscle protein synthesis, which is very calorically intensive. So you’re burning more fat on a protein sparing modified fast.”

“There are some unicorns out there, who the more they eat the more they lose weight.”
