Is it possible to turn back the clock on our metabolism, burn fat, and increase longevity, all while being able to enjoy the food we eat? According to our guest today, it most certainly is.
Dr. William Li is an internal medicine specialist, scientist, and New York Times best-selling author. His groundbreaking work in the field of angiogenesis – which is the process of developing new blood vessels in the body – has led to 40 new medical treatments for cancer, diabetes, and obesity, to name a few.
In his new book, Eat to Beat Your Diet: Burn Fat, Heal Your Metabolism, and Live Longer, Dr. Li shatters some of the myths we’ve been conditioned to believe about metabolism, weight loss, and the role fat plays in the human body.
In this wildly informative episode, we take a deep dive into what we should actually be eating and doing to be the healthiest, fittest version of ourselves!
“People go crazy about insulin spikes and glucose spikes. You know what? I sort of want people to kind of chill out about that because those things do happen. But if you listen to your body and be reasonable, your tank is running on empty, go fill up, don’t eat too much, don’t overflow your tank. Okay? If you’re at the gas station and when you put the nozzle in, and it goes click and you know the gas tank’s full, you put the nozzle away, and you drive off. Now, imagine if there was no clicker and the gas tank filled up. What would happen? The gas would come out of the tank, spill down the side of the car, around the tires, around your shoes, and guess what? You would be standing in a dangerous, flammable mess, toxic mess. That’s what happens when you overeat.” – Dr. William Li
