hey there

This month on the Better show we begin our annual tradition of looking back throughout the year, to find the Best Of – moments of 2022. We will be combining clips from an array of guests we have had on the show to talk about such subjects as Fitness and Building an Hourglass Figure, Menstruation & Menopause, Hormones and this week’s topic… Metabolism. In this episode we hear from Cynthia Thurlow, Dr. Mindy Pelz, Kashif Kahn, Dr. Gil Blander, Dr. Chris Palmer, Brian Sanders, Dr. David Perlmutter, Dr. Bret Scher, and Sal Di Stefano. We go in depth with such topics as fasting, ketosis, low blood glucose, diet misconceptions, fat storage, bad science and fructose metabolism. Metabolism comes in many different forms, and the influence of metabolism on genetics and mental disorders is something we dive into with Dr. Gil Blander, Kashif Kahn, and Dr. Chris Palmer.
