    Fan Feedback:
    Listener Paul sent us this email and we answer his question:
    New listener here; heard you guys on the Stacking Benjamins Podcast and I'm binging from the beginning. I wanted to ask about insulin. I heard Benjamin Bikman on another podcast advocating getting your insulin checked in addition to glucose and a1c. His argument is that insulin level will tell you your level of insulin sensitivity better than glucose. I signed up to get mine tested, but I wanted to know if this guy is a quack and/ or if there are any downsides to getting this test done (other than the $23 it costs). If you already addressed this sorry, I'm catching up, and if you answer this on an episode, can you email me so i can skip ahead?

    Action Items/Conclusions:
    Cold immersion, like heat exposure, offers many positive health benefits when done correctly.  Peter helps us to better understand all of the benefits along with the appropriate usages and protocols to follow.  We also discuss when NOT to use it despite some common beliefs to the contrary.   In the end, heat and cold exposure both offer many health benefits that most of us can benefit from.

The Best!

The chemistry these three have is fantastic. This podcast is fun and laugh out loud funny, but also incredibly informative. They do a great job of helping to explain and deliver serious, complex information in a very accessible, actionable way.

Lots of laughs and learning!

Every time I listen to this podcast, I learn many valuable tips in the midst of tons of laughter!

Thanks to Gary, Sarah, and Peter, I’ve learned more about intelligent financial planning and even found an excellent budgeting app that is helping us better understand our finances and set new goals.

I’m looking forward to learning more with each episode!
