Herman Pontzer PhD - Burn
Major advances in our understanding of human metabolism have been made in recent years, and they’ve been pioneered by Herman Pontzer, PhD. He, and his colleagues, are making discoveries in human metabolism and energy balance that will reshape our approach to human health for many years to come. These are fundamental breakthroughs that are providing explanations for outcomes among energy intake, exercise, and body weight that have confused us for so long.

Keith Baar, PhD
Dr. Baar rejoins us on the show. He was previously on for episode 58. Today we illuminate the central role of connective tissue and associated proteins in transmitting force from muscle, extend that understanding to explain how muscle functions in running (hint: it’s not at all like most people think), and dive into ways that you can optimize your connective tissue health. https://scienceofultra.com/podcasts/143

Herman Pontzer, PhD
Herman Pontzer, PhD is an evolutionary anthropologist at Duke University interested in how the human body evolved and how our species’ past has shaped our health and physiology today. He studies the ecology, lifestyle, diet and evolutionary history of humans and apes to better understand metabolism and health. As you’ll hear in the interview, we emphasize what hunter-gatherer societies can tell us about the human body because it’s the lifestyle of hunter-gatherers that created the bodies we have. Several years ago, Dr. Pontzer and his colleagues were curious about the total energy expended per day by people living as hunter-gatherers. They discovered that nobody had made the actual, direct measurements. It took them a while to convince funding agencies that this was a good use of research dollars because the reviewers thought ’these are very active people, they’re going to be expending a lot more energy than sedentary people, we have good estimates of that based on activity level, we’re not going to learn anything here’. But Dr. Pontzer and is colleagues persisted, got the funding, and did the direct measurements. They discovered that the Hadza people of Tanzania expend the same number of calories per day as sedentary people in the United States and other modern societies despite being much more active.
