“I don’t have anything to fix! I don’t smoke, I don’t drink, and I don’t eat carbs. My life is just great now. Normal. Vanilla.” -Jason Bateman Why is it so many of us can eat whatever want in our 20s and look great but the minute we turn 30 (or 40 or even 50 in some cases), all those bad habits seem to show up immediately? According to our guest for episode 280, Dr. Jeffrey Leake, much of it can be attributed to hormones and insulin. He joins us to disclose what we can do about it through different nutrition choices, exercise and a better understanding of insulin in our bodies. He lets us in on the keys to looking and feeling great, no matter what age we are. More About This Show Dr. Jeffrey Leake is a leading endocrinologist with the often-controversial Cenegenics, the pioneer in age management medicine. Not to be confused with anti-aging, Cenegenics is devoted to helping people use cutting-edge medicine and science to have vitality and energy at any age. Because his specialty is endocrinology, the study of hormones and the role they play in the human body and, hormones in the body is an area he focuses on for his patients. But what you might not expect from Dr. Leake is a discussion about how nutritional choices impact hormones. And yet that’s precisely one of the cornerstones of his teachings. He talks to his patients at Cenegenics about how to create a better, healthier body through proper choices of macro nutrients. To put it simply, he talks to his patients about how what they eat impacts their hormones and how their hormones impact their overall health and function of their bodies. He helps his patients – and you the listener in this episode – understand how to eat properly for the most energy, highest virility and healthiest body possible, no matter your age. The finer details of this show include: Why we need fat. Which carbs to eat, which to avoid: the doctor weighs in. The top six carbohydrate sources to give up. What Jack Lelaine can teach us about living longer and healthier. Most of your cells would prefer to run on fat: true or false? That fat is actually an organ (this will certainly change the way you think about holding on to it!) And so much more! In this show, Dr. Leake goes into great detail about hormones. He explains how they are like the software of your body. They don’t control every single process, but they control many of the important ones and their healthy function is needed for YOUR healthy function. He also goes on to explain how hormones are impacted by insulin, what insulin is and how insulin resistance is created by food choices. We talk about how insulin resistance leads to so many of the endemic diseases we have in many countries today: heart disease, stroke, diabetes, etc. But don’t think it’s all gloom, doom and don’t ever eat sugar again! Dr. Leake gives us some practical tips to take care of our bodies now that will lower our chances of getting these diseases later. But we don’t just talk about nutrition, Dr. Leake also explains which forms of exercise are the most optimal for your body and also the scientific “why” behind these forms. It was terrific to have Dr. Leake on the show; I had a consultation with him and wanted you the listener to hear how much knowledge he has on the topics of hormonal function, and the significant role nutrition and exercise choices play in healthy living.
