238: The most common health issue no one’s talking about
Obesity, heart disease, neurodegeneration – the list of modern diseases go on and on.
They may seem unrelated but research shows that the cause of many serious illnesses may actually be driven by one thing.
I’m talking about insulin resistance. Surprisingly, it’s the most common health disorder worldwide – yet very few people are familiar with it. And no, it’s not just a diabetic issue.
In this episode, I’m joined by Dr. Ben Bikman – a renowned metabolic research scientist, co-founder of HLTH Code, Professor at Brigham Young University, and author of the book, Why We Get Sick: The Hidden Epidemic at the Root of Most Chronic Disease – and How to Fight It.
Dr. Bikman and I unpack insulin resistance and how it affects virtually every system in the body.
Whether you’re interested in losing excess body fat, optimizing brain function, supporting your heart health, or simply feeling your best – this is an episode anyone can benefit from.
On this episode you’ll learn:
- The problem affecting up to 88% of American adults that you may be dealing with (and why its the #1 cause for low energy, stubborn weight gain and more!”) (9:50)
- What the government has gotten all wrong about dietary guidelines (and why fat is NOT the enemy) (11:10)
- Why the calories on your food do NOT matter (but THIS does!) (13:20)
- How to make exercise EASY and FUN (seriously!) (25:52)
- The secret to increasing ketone production (and the easiest way to switch your body into fat-burning machine) (43:04)
- My 3 rules for supporting metabolic flexibility (and why ending a fast correctly is more important than the duration of the fast) (46:53)
