Dr. Mark Scott Routine 1:55

Question 1: 8:25

I got my bloodwork done and all of my tests came back better since I have been doing Intermittent Fasting! The only place I haven’t seen an improvement is my Cholesterol, which is at 300, and my doctor wants to put me on Cholesterol medicine. Do you know of any natural ways I can attempt to improve my Cholesterol before getting on medicine?

-Taryn in Atlanta

Question 2: 17:41

I have a question about Workouts and Fasting- I know that Chantel says that she works out on the days that she does longer fasts, but whenever I do this I am SOOOO lightheaded! I teach Bodypump at the YMCA so I can’t opt out of workouts on the days I fast since it’s my job. Any advice?

-Yolanda in Northern Virginia

Question 3: 22:40

How much magnesium do I need on a daily basis? I’ve noticed that when I eat a lot of it I get the squirts, but also want to be sure I am getting enough. My doctor said that I am magnesium deficient, and I am wondering what causes this?


Question 4: 26:15

I AM SO SLEEPY! Even when I am not fasting, all I want to do is sleep. I went to the Doctor after I heard your thyroid episode- and they said my thyroid was completely fine? What are some other reasons I could be tired?

-Frances in Trenton

Question 5: 29:42

Hi Chantel, in your book you say that you struggle with psoriasis, and so do I! Besides the Intermittent Fasting and 80/20 Principle, are there any other remedies that you recommend?

-Dianne in New York

Question 6: 33:05

I am really enjoying this podcast and have lost 20 pounds so far! I’ve been stalled out for the past two weeks, even though I am keeping my eating window to about 6 hours per day. Do you think I should start counting my calories?

-Helen in Vienna

Question 7: 37:09

After reading the book I started doing a 24 Hour Power Fast every week- I really love it, and it has really helped me with my weight loss. It is becoming less and less of a challenge for me, so I want to attempt a 48 hour fast. Do you have any advice before I begin? Also, for a 48 hour fast, do you recommend that I can have some of the crutch foods and crutch liquids? I know you mention coconut water being healthy, is this okay for me to have during my 48 hour fast?

-Christine in Virginia Beach

Question 8: 42:30

I tried the Ketogenic for a while, but after listening to your podcast, I switched to Intermittent Fasting and have loved it! I stick to a 5-6 hour every day, and try to do a big power fast atleast once a week. I have heard that I can still experience Ketosis while fasting, even though I am not following the Keto diet. How can I test to see if my body is in Ketosis?

-JoAnne in Tappahannock

Question 9: 47:02

You talk a lot about how it takes time for your body to adjust from sugar burning to fat burning. How long does it take? Does it vary from person to person?

Second, I have friend who’s having huge success with the omad diet. 1 meal a day and lost a bunch of weight. Any idea how I can get from a 5-hour eating window down to an omad diet?


Question 10: 49:08

I have several friends selling ketones through a multi-level marketing company and they say they really help you get into ketosis, or fat burning mode even if you aren’t following the ketogenic diet. I know that you aren’t a fan of the keto diet, but I wanted to see if you have tried any products like this and if so, do you recommend them?
