Episode Info

Episode Info:

Our guest this week is Dr. Stephan Guyenet, a respected neurobiologist, health advocate and author. We discuss the way our brain can affect our attempts at health improvement, and how we can find ourselves fighting against our own body when it comes to fat loss.

Junk foods which are calorie-dense can disrupt brain processes and leave the body thinking it needs to increase fat levels. Reducing food intake on fasts and fad diets can therefore leave the body reacting to starvation. Eating healthily should make you feel good, and if you are balancing your nutrients.

Adjust your food levels as you go along, and stick with the things that make you feel better. Nutritional diets need to adapt as our circumstances change - and as we get older. With hormonal changes happening when we age, estrogen levels drop in women. This makes it harder to lose fat - especially around the middle.

We talk to Dr. Stephan about his work on Dan's Plan - designed to help people become aware of factors that affect health, and to make changes that will have you feeling better. Track your progress towards your goals, and be mindful of the reality of your experience. When you start to find the right levels for you, your cravings should reduce and you should start to enjoy the new foods you are eating.
