One topic that’s come up often on the HVMN Podcast is insulin resistance. Growing evidence suggests that insulin is an important metabolic driver behind diseases like diabetes, neurological conditions like Alzheimer's, and even some forms of cancer.

Today, we speak with Dr. Benjamin Bikman, a professor at BYU who’s an expert in insulin resistance and the interventions in which we can control it. He also personally practices a low-carb lifestyle complete with fasting and functional fitness routines.

In this episode, you'll discover:

  • What Dr. Bikman believes the role of scientists & researchers should be on social media
  • What true physiological insulin resistance actually means & the nuances of ketosis and how ketones are metabolized
  • The calorie in calorie out vs. carbohydrate-insulin model for obesity
