The Lucas Rockwood Show

By 2035, it’s estimated that half the world’s population will be overweight. At the same time, we’ll likely continue to live longer and longer which means the financial cost and even more tragic loss of healthspan will be catastrophic. While the solution seems obvious, eat less and exercise more, things are not so simple in reality. I wonder if perhaps we’re asking the wrong questions about weight? What if the real question to ask is why we’re so hungry in the first place? On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet Amy Shah, MD, whose work focuses on answering this question.

Listen to learn:

  • Why food is mood
  • Why certain foods fill you up, others have “no limits”
  • The importance of resistance training, and yes for women too
  • How meal timing (not long fasting) can be very helpful for everyone
  • Why hyperpalatable foods encourage people to eat up to 500 calories more per day, even when the foods are identical
