    The Surprising Connection Between Everyday Toxins and Insulin Resistance, PCOS, Endometriosis and Weight Gain

    The Surprising Connection Between Everyday Toxins and Insulin Resistance, PCOS, Endometriosis and Weight Gain

    Today we are excited to be joined by Dr. Vivian Chen.
    Dr. Chen has 14 years of experience as a doctor in the UK. She trained in internal medicine and dermatology in London before moving into Family Practice.
    Today’s show is a bit different than many of our others because our conversation with Dr. Vivian Chen focuses on food, but also on specific environmental contaminants that can increase your risk for insulin resistance as well as other metabolic diseases.
    It’s true that excess saturated fat is one of the most potent and reliable triggers of insulin resistance, as many published studies have shown
    But beyond the saturated fat equation, there are many other aspects of daily life that can increase your risk for IR, including:
    Weight gain A sedentary lifestyle Overconsumption of calories Living in a high stress environment A suppressed immune system, and  Excess alcohol intake (to name a few) In today’s show, we’ll talk with Dr. Vivian Chen about the role that chemicals in your environment play in “disrupting” your endocrine health
    We’ll talk about animal foods, tupperware, plastic bags, receipts, packaged food products, plastic water bottles, flame retardants, fish, and much much more
    You can learn more about Dr. Vivian Chen by visiting her website at www.platefulhealth.com or stalking her on Instagram at plateful.health

Podcast

Great podcast - plant based eating on a budget! Information so good for all. Loved the presenter’s energy. Loved the details she took into consideration with prep of recipes from equipment, availability of ingredients in common supermarkets and time requirements to make. The length if the podcast was perfect also. The pertinent information was put out there.

best informative podcast out there

You guys totally rock! I learn so much from you guys. I've listened to all your podcasts and even relisten sometimes. I love all the science and evidence based research. Although I am not diabetic I don't fear insulin like I did before. Switched from a Keto diet to a whole food plant based diet that is low fat. I can't believe how much I can enjoy food and still lose weight. I had a gastric sleeve surgery a few years ago but weight was not coming off due to eating animal products and fat. You guys are the best, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
