How To Improve Your Metabolic Health

Episode 504 1h 42m


Only about 12 percent of Americans are considered “metabolically healthy.” That means the other 88 percent of us aren’t meeting basic medical guidelines for things like blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol, and other markers of metabolic health. In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Cindy Geyer, Dr. Ben Bikman, Mark Sisson, and Dr. Elizabeth Boham about how to identify if you are metabolically unhealthy, how to optimize your metabolic flexibility, and much more. Dr. Cindy Geyer received her Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Medicine degrees, with honors, from the Ohio State University.
