What you’ll learn in David’s podcast:

  • The failure of low fat, low calories
  • We’re dynamic biological systems: When you cut back on calories, the body fights back
  • Obesity-excess fat in storage, but a state of starvation to the rest of the body, cutting back on calories always worsens this phenomenon
  • Insulin: the most potent anabolic hormone, the ultimate “fat cell fertilizer”
  • Insulin directs incoming calories to be stored as fat in adipocytes
  • If you don’t have diabetes, the quickest way to adjust your insulin levels is based on the amount of processed carbs consumed
  • The quickest way to unlock excess fat in storage is through a rich, high-fat diet followed by the addition of whole-kernel high-fiber grains as tolerated by the individual
  • The gut microbiome and metabolic health
  • Pesticides, herbicides and food additives and GI health
  • Restoring sanity to our food environment- a grass roots movement
