Podcast Highlights

1:55  The first concept we reviewed was whether it matters how many of your calories comes from fats, carbohydrates, or proteins, as long as you eat fewer calories? The myth is that it doesn’t matter where your calories from. Philip emphasized that if you reduce your calories too much, you will not burn any fat. According to him, fat will only convert to energy in a calorically hot environment.   

5:40  Dr. Goglia talked about how a lipid profile and a HgA1c measurement from blood are clues to how a person metabolizes fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.  For example, if your triglycerides are elevated, that indicates that your body is unable to burn all of your carbohydrates for energy and instead you are storing it in your liver as triglycerides, which is referred to as fatty liver. Philip said that when he talks to some of his patients with high triglycerides about eating too much sugar, they often say that they don’t eat any sugar. He explains that if what they are eating is not meat with eyes and it’s not nuts and seeds, then it’s sugar. If it doesn’t have a heart beat, if it can’t run after you in the woods or take a dump in the woods or swim or bite you, then it’s sugar.
