Dr. Bikman has a PhD in Bioenergetics and a postdoctoral fellowship with the Duke-National University of Singapore in metabolic disorders. He currently explores the contrasting roles of insulin and ketones as key drivers of metabolic function. This episode is a wealth of information that covers a broad stroke of topics ranging from what drives your metabolism and insulin’s effects on the body, to how religious beliefs potentially affect the diet of its adherents.




[07:24] What Metabolic Syndrome actually is, why it is relevant, and why attacking its roots are key in fighting weight-gain.


[18:50] Why human babies are born obese, the best things to feed your young children, and how ketones fuel brain growth in babies and adults alike.


[27:11] How a CGM could be useful for everyone in the general population, what it tells us about our bodies, and why genetics play such a major role in insulin response.


[34:15] The myth of cholesterol, why Dr. Ben wrote his latest book, and the best way to define your relationship with carbs.


[55:40] An interesting conversation about how Dr. Ben foresees his work manifesting itself in the LDS faith community.
