    Fixing Your Fat Burn! Fat Burning Corrected For Life

    Hello friends! This episode is a primer to episode #200 which is a very special episode coming out with Dr. Cate Shanahan on Monday! In preparation for this upcoming episode, I explain Dr. Cate's mind blowing hypothesis on the origins of metabolic syndrome, obesity and insulin resistance. Hint: It is NOT actually sugar and carbs blocking our bodies' ability to burn fat! I walk you through exactly why your body may have lost the ability to burn fat over time, and why it has become a sugar burner, as well as what to do about it to fix it and turn your body back into a fat burning machine! And also why keto is so important and critical in fixing your body's fat burning systems!

    Fasting & Muscle Loss Study & Eating More Calories During PMS

    Fasting & Muscle Loss Study & Eating More Calories During PMS

    This episode is about fasting and muscle loss and a study showing how fat is mobilized during short and long term fasting through the main substrate for gluconeogenesis which is glycerol coming from stored fatty acids rather than muscle. I also discuss another study showing how many calories are burned during PMS or the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and why it is good to eat more during that time, as fat gain will not occur and we will support the body's hormones.
    Study links:
    Fasting study: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2212877819309342
