Estrogen and soy [9:04] Steven says: I'm wondering how much youve researched about the relationship between soy and estrogen and/or its estrogen mimmicking characteristics. This would be an interesting thing to explore and explain on a Q&A podcast. Thanks!   2. What Causes Insulin Resistance? [12:42] Franks says: Hello Robb and Nicki! I am currently studying kinesiology, and there is one question I cannot get my head around. What causes insulin resistance? From my research, there are two schools of thought. One is the repeated exposure of high insulin level cause the cell to down-regulate resulting insulin resistance. The other school of thought is the fat cell, and the liver cell is so full of lipids that insulin physically can not push more sugar or fat into the cell. If the first is true, why some other peptide hormones like growth hormones, does not seem to down-regulate when there is a chronic high level of exposure. People who use even abuse MK-677, a growth hormones secretagogue, they do not seem to have a growth hormone sensitivity down-regulation. The only studies I could find is growth hormones insensitivity due to genetics. Some steroid hormones even up-regulate the receptor when exposing chronically like testosterone. If the second school of thought is true, why there are people who are lean and workout but start developing insulin resistance. Many distance runners start developing insulin resistance even they are training heavily. I wish to hear your thoughts on this. thank you! I love the work you are doing! I learned so much from your talks and Q&A.   3. Weight Loss Resistance & Detox Kits [22:24] Amanda says: Hi Rob and Nicki! After my 3rd child (3rd c/s), I couldn't lose all of the baby weight.

A friend of mine, who is also my chiropractor, recommended I do a detox that he coaches, called True Cellular Detox ( He believes hormone imbalances due to toxins in my body are what are causing my weight loss resistance. I'm a little skeptical - what are your thoughts on these detox kits? Are there other ways of ...
