The Official Turtle Creek Lane Podcast, where we talk about Family, Decor, Health, and whatever else we feel like :)

Episode Date
Food, Fuel, and Fat: My FASCINATING Conversation with Metabolic Scientist, Dr. Ben Bikman

Every time we swallow food, our body makes a decision about what to do with those calories. 

Your body chooses to either: 

  1. Store the calories as fat
  2. Burn the calories as energy

Have you ever wondered how your body makes that decision?

In this episode, Dr. Bikman and I answer this question and talk about all things human metabolism. We discuss:

  • How our bodies decide what to do with the food we eat (burn as energy, or store as fat)
  • What types of food send the message "store fat" and what foods send the message "burn fat"
  • How insulin works in our bodies
  • Our family's new favorite food product, and why we LOVE it 
  • If sweeteners are okay, and if so, which ones to use and which ones to avoid
  • How insulin plays a role in the transmission of COVID 19
  • What Dr. Bikman and I eat, and what we feed our families and kids
  • Dr. Bikman's new book "Why We Get Sick"
