#261: Fasting Tips and the 2-Steps to Sustained Weight Loss with Dr. Ben Bikman Dhru Purohit Podcast

    • Alternative Health

This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and Rupa Health.
Most people are pretty confused when it comes to metabolic health. Fasting, macronutrient ratios, and blood glucose regulation are only a few of the topics that trip people up when it comes to managing a healthy weight and relationship to food. Naturally, I like to look to the latest research to find a clearer picture. And science has come a long way since the “eat less, exercise more” paradigm was first introduced. 
If you’ve wondered what aspects of your diet and lifestyle made the biggest impact on your metabolic health and how to make subtle tweaks for maximum impact, this episode of The Dhru Purohit Podcast is for you. Today I talk to my good friend, Dr. Ben Bikman about all this and more. 
Dr. Bikman is a renowned metabolic research scientist and a popular speaker on human metabolism and nutrition. He is the author of the book, Why We Get Sick, which offers a thought-provoking yet real solution to insulin resistance and reversing pre-diabetes, improving brain function, shedding fat, and preventing diabetes.
 
In this episode, we dive into:  
 
-The best approach to take when you start fasting (6:27)
-Why eating fruit first thing in the morning is not the best thing for our health (9:00)
-Dr. Bikman’s daily eating routine (11:40)
