EP 163 - Dr. Benjamin Bikman
Welcome to The Pretty Intense Podcast. On the show today is scientist and professor Dr. Benjamin Bikman. Dr. Bikman studies insulin in particular. He is also the author of "Why We Get Sick". We started off with the simple question that I feel we all want to know: "Why do I get fat?" and "How do I get skinny?". This is a very comprehensive conversation about a topic that can be a little complicated. Get the facts on how to have the most efficient, high performing, fat burning habits. Learn how the body reacts to different foods. What can trigger disease, and infertility. How you should be eating to achieve the body you want. We talk about the Carnivore Diet. We talk about where vegetables should feature in our diet. We also talked about when to use fasting for maximum fat burning. There is a lot we can learn from Dr. Bikman to get ourselves in the best shape we can be in. Enjoy this fat burning episode.
Benjamin Bikman earned his Ph.D. in Bioenergetics and was a postdoctoral fellow with the Duke-National University of Singapore in metabolic disorders. Currently, his professional focus as a scientist and professor (Brigham Young University) is to better understand the role of elevated insulin and nutrient metabolism in regulating obesity, diabetes, and dementia.
