Everything we know about metabolism is WRONG | Ep170

By now, you probably know I'm obsessed with ENERGY. So this episode is really exciting to me. My guest and I take a deep dive into our energy production by taking a close look at one of the last true hunter-gatherer societies on Earth — the Hadza. I'm joined by Dr. Herman Pontzer, an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Duke University and author of the book Burn: New Research Blows the Lid Off How We Really Burn Calories, Lose Weight, and Stay Healthy. Dr. Pontzer was also recently featured in The New York Times for his incredible research on metabolism and longevity. On this episode, he and I reveal the TRUTH about your metabolism, explain why exercising WON'T necessarily lead to more fat-burning, and why the 2,000 calorie a day diet might be all WRONG.
