In this part two episode with molecular biologist Brad Marshall, Dr. Anthony Gustin dives into the science of fat storage and what you can do once your metabolism goes out of whack from consuming too much vegetable oils and sugar.
As Brad explains, it’s not just as simple as removing these items from your diet, although that is a great first step to take.
Instead, it’s about understanding a gnarly process called SCD1, which Brad and Dr. Gustin tackle in this episode, and stopping it dead in its tracks so that you can start to burn your own fat again.
By doing this, you’ll be able to lose fat and keep it off once and for all.
On top of that, Brad and Dr. Gustin also chat about what we can learn from animals who hibernate and how this translates to human health, the role leptin plays in fat storage, and whether there’s a genetic component at play here.
They also chat about changing your metabolic rate and how you can do this, the desaturase index and how it relates to obesity, and so much more.
If you missed Brad’s first episode, he’s an incredible wealth of knowledge.
He went to Cornell to study molecular biology, he started a charcuterie business and several successful restaurants, and, most recently, he branched out into pig farming.
Brad’s also known for starting The Croissant Diet and he’s a food historian who shares several fun facts along the way.
Tune in now to learn more about the science behind fat storage and what you can do to finally eliminate fat once and for all.
