Diet Doctor Podcast #71 — Metabolic health compilation

Metabolic health has become a hot topic lately, and for good reason. But it hasn’t always been that way. Hear from our four experts how the concept of metabolic health has changed for them, and how nutrition plays a vital role in improving metabolic health. But, as you will hear, the state of nutritional research is rather poor and can be quite confusing. How do you make sense of the research and apply it to improving your metabolic health?

Also, what is the role of physicians and scientists to educate the public over social media platforms? Drs. Nick Norwitz, Ethan Weiss, Ted Naiman and Michael Mindrum take us on a journey exploring these concepts and more in the latest Diet Doctor Podcast.

Thanks for reading,
Bret Scher, MD FACC
