302: What Is Metabolic Flexability And What It Can Do For You


  • Welcome to the podcast episode about Metabolic Flexibility.

  • In this episode, we’ll explore the theory behind Metabolic Flexibility, how it works, and the benefits of achieving it.

  • I have been researching this topic a lot lately and attribute most of my knowledge to Dr. Gundry.

Segment 1: What is Metabolic Flexibility?

  • I explain that Metabolic Flexibility is the ability of our body to switch between using different sources of fuel, such as carbohydrates, fats, and ketones, depending on the availability and demands of our body.

  • I explain how our body prefers to use glucose as its primary fuel source, which comes from carbohydrates, but it can also use fats and ketones for energy.

  • I discuss the importance of achieving Metabolic Flexibility for overall health, weight management, and athletic performance.

Segment 2: Achieving Metabolic Flexibility through Diet

  • I explain that one way to achieve Metabolic Flexibility is through diet.

  • I discuss how to cycle between low-carbohydrate and high-carbohydrate diets to condition our body to switch between using fats and carbohydrates as fuel sources.

  • I share practical tips on how to implement these cycles and what foods to include in each cycle.

  • I discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each cycle and how to personalize it based on individual needs and goals.

Segment 3: Personal Experience with Metabolic Flexibility

  • I share my personal experience with Metabolic Flexibility and how it has impacted my health and athletic performance.

  • I explain that I had trouble storing glycogen due to being on a low-carbohydrate diet for years.

  • I share practical advice for those interested in achieving metabolic flexibility through diet.
