Let’s shift our focus today from fast to flexible metabolism! Herman Pontzer joins Dr. Jade in this episode of the Next Level Human podcast to elaborate on the science and evolution of metabolism, helping us understand why diet is unique for everyone. Dr. Herman’s book, Burn: New Research Blows the Lid Off How We Really Burn Calories, Lose Weight, and Stay Healthy, is an extensive take on human metabolism that explains why calories matter and how much we usually underestimate our daily food consumption. He describes the additive nature of calories and says that for every muscle you burn, you could lose around 49 kilocalories! We also learn about the evolution of metabolism and all about calories that could get you started. Does our efficiency increase as we exercise more? Tune in to find out and take away many more insights from our special guest!
