Today we talk about metabolism, how to accurately define metabolism, signs our metabolic health might be in trouble, and things we can do about it. A lot of times we think metabolism refers to fat digestion or how quickly we can get rid of food. Often we'll say, ‘Well, that person can eat more because they have a faster metabolism than I do. That's a flaw because metabolism refers to the sum total of chemical reactions the body performs every single second. The body works tandemly as a system where you have chemical reactions in cells and in cellular networks, in organs, organ systems, and in the entire body that help to propel it to do amazing things. 7 things we can do to improve metabolic health: good nutrition, effective exercise, good sleep, focus on gut health, take advantage of science based supplements, take time each day for meditation and mindfulness, and cultivate and have warm social interactions.Biosignaling reactions and controlling metabolism 2:27The food we eat now is different than it used to be 4:37Pollution 9:29Defining metabolic syndrome 13:00We need to eat REAL food 20:30Caloric restriction 21:15Exercise and sleep 22:00Science based supplementation 24:56“We need to eat the rainbow as they say because the different colors of fruits and vegetables means that there's different types of phytonutrients in those foods, because they are absorbing light at different wavelengths, that's why they're different colors. The reason they're absorbing light at different wavelengths is because their chemical structures are different. So diversity is really good.” 20:47https://feelbrilliant.com/
JJ Virgin shares the key lifestyle changes that you need to make to boost your metabolism and live your best life at age 50 and beyond. Learn about the seven foods you should drop immediately from your diet, how to cross train your diet in the same way you would cross train your exercise, and the key health parameters you should be paying attention to every week to know if you're moving in the right direction. [1:45] One of the things you have to prioritize as you age is self-care and putting yourself first. Sacrificing your sleep may no longer be a worthy option. You can be in your best shape at 50, but you need to focus on what you need to be healthy. [3:30] A healthy body burns fat and holds onto muscle. If you're carrying around extra weight, it may be an indicator that you have a metabolic condition. Weight loss is a side benefit of your metabolism working well. [4:20] You need to step on the scale everyday if you want to understand how your body is functioning. The key is to position yourself as the observer instead of the judge. People who weigh in every day keep the weight off and it helps you connect the dots between what you're eating and how it's working for you. [7:00] There are seven foods that are commonly found in most people's diets that once removed often result in immediate weight loss. We're very aware of food sensitivities like shellfish and peanuts, but rarely pay attention to things like sugar and gluten. [8:50] You need to eliminate sugar and sweeteners from your diet. Sugar is doing a lot of disruption to your gut and making it more inflammatory overall. [9:45] There is a right way to do keto and a wrong way to do keto. Paying attention to your alkalinity and constant measuring is important to keeping a diet on track. [11:45] JJ is anti-diet. Dieting should be used therapeutically in the short-term, so you can learn what works for you and bring that into your daily routine. Cross train your diet like you would use your exercise. [12:40] 76% of us are overweight or obese right now, and only 12% of the population would be considered metabolically healthy. [13:40] For someone metabolically healthy, intuitive eating can work well to help you understand what food is working for you. Since most people aren't in that category, intuitive eating is pointing them in the wrong direction. [14:30] Avoid eating before sleep and avoid eating for at least an hour after waking up. Get up and get active as quickly as possible. [15:30] Any kind of toxin can get in the way of you losing weight. Mold toxicity is extremely prevalent and can cause major issues metabolically speaking. [17:15] The first meal in the morning where most people mess up. So many of the breakfast choices are simply sugar. When you break your fast it should be with clean protein, healthy fats and fiber. [19:00] A continuous glucose monitor can be a powerful tool in helping you understand the effects of food on your body. [21:25] Eating disorders are very common in the diabetic population. The trajectory of the US population is not going in a great direction. Right now, we are on track for 100% of the population to be diabetic by the year 2030. [23:15] You need to love yourself right where you are, and then dare yourself to want more. You just need a path to heal your metabolism and that's not going to happen if we don't have these conversations. [24:20] Dr. Anna goes over the baselines for metabolic health for both men and women. In addition to waist-to-hip ratio and triglycerides, we should also be paying attention to Vitamin D, blood pressure, and triglyceride to HDL ratio. If one of these factors are off, it becomes the precursor to several other factors going off the rails, and it can point you toward what you need to fix. [28:45] If your diet is dialed in but your fasting blood sugar and hemoglobin H1C is elevated, you may need to look at the stress in your life. It's important to track these numbers because they point to where in your lifestyle you need to make some shifts so that it doesn't get worse. [29:15] Focus on one change at a time, otherwise you won't stick with anything. JJ recommends starting with food and identifying your hidden food intolerances. Once you know which foods work for and which ones don't, you begin lowering your sugar impact, and that prepares you to enter ketogenic cycles without the usual pain involved with jumping into something new. [33:55] A caloric restricted diet doesn't work long-term, but cross training and cycling through diets short-term can be very effective. It's a lifestyle approach.

Today, I am thrilled and honored to be talking to Dr. Alexandra Sowa. Dr. Sowa is a dual board-certified physician of internal medicine, specializing in metabolic health, and clinical instructor of medicine at NYU Langone. She has served as a health expert for national media outlets and print publications like SiriusXM, CBS News, NPR, the New York Times, U.S. News, World Report, and more. In addition to her private practice in NYC, she is the founder of SoWell Health, a consumer metabolic health company. Over the years, people kept complaining to Dr. Sowa about weight gain, decreased endurance, brain fog, and irregular periods, even when their doctors had told them they were healthy and their labs looked fine. When Dr. Sowa checked their labs, however, she would immediately see that they had metabolic syndrome, an underactive thyroid, a vitamin deficiency, and in 90% of the cases, insulin resistance too. During the turbulent period of the pandemic, Dr. Sowa finally had the time to sit and think about how she could help those patients. She came up with a unique solution and developed a home-testing kit to assess and address the symptoms of people's metabolic health issues. In this episode, we discuss the scope of metabolic health in the U.S., and Dr. Sowa explains how she came up with her Weight Biology Kit. We talk about the importance of making the right nutritional choices and improving your health by making better lifestyle decisions. We dive into the role of using technology to monitor health, the influence of alcohol, and using Naltrexone to overcome alcohol cravings. We also unpack the notions of cheat days and biohacking in the wellness space. Remember to check out Dr. Sowa's Weight Biology Kit, a point-of-care testing kit for insulin resistance. Stay tuned for more! IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN: How Dr. Sowa came up with her home-testing kit to address people's metabolic issues. Insulin is often the first biomarker to become dysregulated as people move towards insulin resistance. Dr. Sowa explains why insulin is a better predictor than blood sugar of where people are in terms of their metabolic health. Why do people with high insulin levels gain weight even if they are calorie-restricting and eating very little? How does nutrition impact metabolic health? The two most important things you can do to improve your health if you have elevated insulin, and you show signs of insulin resistance. Three lifestyle changes that, in addition to better nutrition, can be instrumental in helping improve fasting insulin and blood sugar levels. The disruptive role alcohol can play in your metabolic health. Some tips for overcoming alcohol cravings. Why is it best to avoid having cheat days? The benefits of journaling, as a motivator for changing behavior. The roles technology and biohacking can play in metabolic health. The eight areas that get tested in Dr. Sowa's core point-of-care home testing products. Dr. Sowa explains what the HOMA-IR score is.

Today, I am blessed to have here with me for a second time Dr. Cate Shanahan. She is the leading authority on nutrition and human metabolism. Free 7 Day Keto Challenge: http://www.ketokampchallenge.com A board-certified Family Physician with over 20 years of clinical experience, and NY Times bestselling author of The FatBurn Fix, Deep Nutrition and Food Rules, her expertise is fixing the underlying problems that cause metabolic damage and inflammation, leading to autoimmunity, weight gain, diabetes, cancer and accelerated aging processes. Her passion is helping people feel their best. After getting her BS in biology from Rutgers University, she trained in biochemistry and genetics at Cornell University's graduate school before attending Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. She practiced in Hawaii for ten years where she studied ethnobotany and her healthiest patient's culinary habits. She applied her learning and experiences in all these scientific fields to write Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food. Together with Dr. Tim DiFrancesco and NBA legend Gary Vitti, she created the PRO Nutrition program for the LA Lakers and helped forge a partnership between Whole Foods Market and numerous NBA teams. In May of 2018 she begin Director of Metabolic Health for ABC Fine Wine and Spirits, a progressive, family-run company interested in saving money by the betterment of health. She's also the Medical & Scientific Advisor at CB Supplements, overseeing their premium-grade multi collagen protein, and for beliv, a forward-thinking Latin American beverage company. In this episode, Dr. Cate explains how we are kept on an island of unhealthy seed oils. We chat about how these seeds oils are being stored in our body fat for years at a time and why extended fasts may not be safe for people who are not metabolically healthy. We talk about the differences between monounsaturated, saturated, and polyunsaturated fats. Then, Dr. Cate reveals how dietary linoleic acid omega-6 ends up in our membranes and inner fat cells. Tune in as Dr. Cate chats about the effects of fatty acids on mitochondria and why our mitochondria love a ketogenic lifestyle.

[01:30] When You're Scared of Fat, You'll Be Hungry For Processed Foods We are kept on an island of unhealthy seed oils by traumas around saturated fat and cholesterol. When you're scared of traditional fats, then that opens you up to being hungry for whatever the processed food companies want to feed you. Processed foods always have a lot of seed oils in them. Seed oils are truly toxic. [06:50] The Differences Between Monounsaturated, Saturated, and Polyunsaturated Fats Monounsaturated is the main fatty acid in olive oil. The most common fats in seed oils are polyunsaturated. Saturated fats are the most common fat in coconut oil. It's also the most prevalent fat in butter. The difference between these fats chemically is the stability to heat. Saturated fats are the most stable and have an antioxidant effect. Polyunsaturated fatty acids oxidize and create oxidative stress. [12:40] The Metabolic Pathway For How Dietary Linoleic Acid Omega-6 Ends Up In The Membranes and Inner Fat Cells You swallow a potato chip, and it gets broken up in your stomach a few hours later. Then it shows up in your intestinal tract where enzymes from your pancreas break apart the fats in there. Most of the fats are in the form of triglycerides. We have to use lipases in our pancreas to break it up. From there, it goes into the intestinal cells. Later, it gets picked up from your liver. The liver takes it all apart and repackages it in this thing called low-density lipoprotein. [21:50] How Seed Oils Can Stay In Your Body For Extended Periods of Time Linoleic acid in our fat cells has a long half-life. Body fat is stuck with us until we use it. If you've been eating seed oils your whole life, it will take a couple of years for it to be gone. If you aren't metabolically healthy or fit, you shouldn't do extended fasts because they're releasing so many pro-inflammatory oils all at once. [27:35] Should I Avoid Peanut Oil or Eat More Peanut Oil? Peanut oil is okay if it's unrefined. In fact, peanut oil is actually good because it's a traditional fat. Some peanuts have oil profiles that are more like olives. There's a lot of variables with plants, so it's hard to be absolute about anything. The best quality peanuts are the larger ones, and they do have a better fatty acid profile. [33:15] Why Do Some People Think That Seed Oils Are Good For You? The American Heart Association pumps out 13 journals either weekly or monthly. They're putting out hundreds of articles every year, funded by Procter & Gamble and other companies selling junk food and seed oils. The American Heart Association is giving out the wrong information. Dietitians are doing their homework; their job is to read the wrong pile of articles. The American Heart Association is the biggest fake news organization out there. [36:30] Effects of Fatty Acids on Mitochondria: Implications For Cell Death Read the article Effects of Fatty Acids on Mitochondria: Implications For Cell Death: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/12206909/ This study explains why people who have PUFA in their body fat will feel tired when they go on a diet. PUFA is a terrible fuel for your body cells. The mitochondria will stop producing energy when their fuel is PUFA. When people go on a diet, they feel like they can't do it anymore because they are so tired. Energy loss is a huge part of obesity. [44:55] Why Ketones Are A Great Energy Source For The Mitochondria Ketones are designed out of your body fat. When you're burning your body fat, and your liver is healthy, it makes ketones for you. Ketones are like predigested fuel. Ketones are a better fuel, and our cells actually work better when they have access to that better fuel. Hearts that have access to ketones can actually pump 30% harder than hearts that don't. [47:45] The Brain Needs Omega-3 and Omega-6: Here's What You Need To Know Your brain needs omega-3 and omega-6. However, your brain needs longer omega-3 and omega-6. Only fish and animal products can have long versions of omega-3 and omega-6. You have to have these enzymes that elongate them. If you've been eating too much seed oil, your enzymes are not functional, and they don't work very well. Fatty liver is such a devastating disease because it cannot elongate these fatty acids.

In this conversation, Levels Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Casey Means, speaks with Dr. Terry Wahls to discuss Dr. Wahls' experience with multiple sclerosis and how it led her to develop a holistic protocol to address the root cause physiology of autoimmune diseases. Dr. Wahls also discovered that metabolic health is tightly linked to autoimmune diseases, and how understanding blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity is an important step for anyone dealing with autoimmunity. Dr. Wahls ultimately developed The Wahls Protocol, one of the most influential lifestyle programs today that addresses autoimmune disease, which reversed her disease process and allowed her to get back on her feet.

Today's episode of The Drive is a rebroadcast of the conversation with Iñigo San Millán, (released on December 23rd, 2019). This episode with Iñigo was one of the most popular discussions to date and is a prelude to an upcoming follow-up discussion in 2022. In this episode, Dr. Iñigo San Millán, Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, explains the crucial role of mitochondrial function in everything from metabolic health to elite exercise performance. Iñigo provides a masterclass into the many different energy system pathways, the various fuel sources (including the misunderstood lactate), the six zones of exercise training, and the parameters he uses to measure metabolic health. Additionally, he highlights the power of zone 2 training as both an effective diagnostic tool and, perhaps more importantly, as a treatment for mitochondrial and metabolic dysfunction. We discuss: Iñigo's background in sports and decision to focus on education [3:45]; The various energy systems and fuels used during exercise [11:15]; Iñigo's qualification of energy systems into six training zones [19:30]; Lactate as an important fuel source [29:30]; Zone 2 training—physiologic characteristics, fuel sources, lactate, and the transition into zone 3 [37:00]; Using blood lactate levels (and zone-2 threshold) to assess mitochondrial function [43:30]; Accessing mitochondrial function by testing one's ability to utilize fat as fuel [51:30]; Athletes vs. metabolically ill patients—mitochondria, fat oxidation, muscle glycogen capacity, “fat droplets”, and more [56:30]; Physiologic characteristics of zone 3, zone 4, and the lactate threshold [1:16:30]; Fueling exercise—dietary implications on glycolytic function [1:27:00]; Relationship between exercise and insulin sensitivity (and what we can learn from studying patients with type 1 diabetes) [1:43:00]; Metformin's impact on mitochondrial function, lactate production, and how this affects the benefits of exercise [2:00:45]; Raising awareness of the risk of “double diabetes” [2:11:30]; How to dose zone 2 training, and balancing exercise with nutrition [2:14:30]; Proposed explanation of the Warburg Effect: Role of lactate in carcinogenesis [2:23:30]; Doping in cycling, and the trend towards altitude training [2:35:45] and; More.

Exercise is arguably one of the fastest ways to decrease blood sugar and insulin as well as prime the body to burn more fat. We review a recent paper that discusses the history and new research about exercise as a glucose and insulin lowering tool.

Link to video, images and research: https://bit.ly/3GzUahA Time Stamps: 0:00 Intro 0:05 Insulin resistance is the root cause of many of today's premature deaths and chronic disease expression. 0:32 Moving/exercising, especially in the post meal window, makes changes that decrease glucose levels and make your skeletal muscle more sensitive to the effects of insulin. This leads to reduced insulin output by your pancreas. 1:40 Insulin is involved in post meal processing and anabolic reaction. It helps build. It helps replenish depleted glycogen. It helps, in the post exercise window, to increase amino acid biosynthesis. 1:58 Exercise is favorable, but it is catabolic, meaning that it tears down. 2:23 Post meal glycemic levels flatten with exercise. Diabetics tend to use less insulin on days when they exercise and blood sugar levels decrease more quickly. 4:48 During exercise your muscles become a glucose sponge; muscle glucose uptake increases in an intensity and duration dependent manner. Glucose is needed to make ATP in your muscles. 5:40 Exercise increases the expression and sensitivity of GLUT4 transporter. GLUT4 can be desensitized by persistent elevation of glucose levels. 9:35 Insulin is a potent inhibitor of adipose tissue lipolysis, the ability of your fat cells to release stored lipids. 10:10 Pre-workout or intra-workout carbohydrates may slow down your fat lipolysis, or fat burning. If fat loss is your goal, you may want to consider exercising in a fasted state. 11:30 When you exercise, your adrenal glands release adrenaline and noradrenaline. These enhance the liberation of stored fat from your fat cells to use for cellular energy when you exercise. 11:50 Fasting and exercise both elevate adrenals. Prolonged fasting and overexercising can be hard on your adrenals. 12:40 High insulin reduces the normally a progressive rise in free fatty acid oxidation during exercise. 13:15 One Legged Study: The exercised leg increased its muscle glycogen stores to levels twice that of the sedentary leg. Exercise increases the ability of your moving muscles to store glycogen. 13:50 When you move your muscles, you are depleting glycogen with the muscle. Exercise helps your muscles become more insulin sensitive by depleting glycogen within the muscle, causing muscles to be more insulin sensitive in the post exercise window. A glycogen-depleting workout is a good way to kickoff your fast. 15:25 After dinner starts your overnight fast. Perhaps you could take a brisk walk or lift weights before dinner to blunt the post meal glycemic index level. 15:50 Doing your post meal exercise when your post meal blood glucose level peaks, has the best ability to reduce glucose levels. This peak is most often 45 to 60 minutes after a meal. 16:23 Eat early. Sleep early. Eat your carbs commensurate with your physical activity level. Go for a walk after your meal. 17:15 Insulin sensitivity can be boosted for up to 48 hours after a single exercise session. Exercise increases the transport of glucose from the bloodstream into muscles by a factor of 34. 18:45 Eccentric exercise, slow descent, muscle damaging effects can cause a transient reduction in insulin sensitivity. Moderation is key. 19:40 You are most insulin sensitive in the morning. You become more insulin resistant as the day progresses. Exercise when you can. Afternoon resistance training can blunt your dinner glycemic index. 20:45 Sprinkle exercise throughout the day. Researchers call them exercise snacks. These snacks can be as simple as going for walks. 21:45 Big surges glycemic variability/glycemic levels are a big problem.
To live long, healthy lives, research suggests looking towards the gut microbiome to ward off chronic diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, or type 2 diabetes. A whopping 46 million Americans are currently over 65 years of age. As Americans age, they are more at risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.In this part II of the podcast with Dr. Ralph Esposito, we discuss all things nutrition and hormones. We attack this from an athletic perspective and give reference to questions like "what are the hormones that athletes need to know about and what are we doing to mess these hormones up".
