When it came to choosing her career path, Jaime was tossing up between becoming a chef or a doctor. By chance, she stumbled upon the dietetic occupation while she was trawling through university courses – and that was her defining ‘aha’ moment. Fast forward a decade or so, Jaime is an established clinical dietitian who has dedicated a significant amount of time investigating the science behind intermittent fasting… so much so, she’s written two books on it! For our latest podcast, we were lucky enough to sit down with Jaime to learn more about the fascinating world of intermittent fasting.
