Your body turns food into energy, but how does that work? Can you use tricks and hacks to overcome your body’s natural tendency to be either fat or skinny?

Here are the additional angles we came up with:

  • Does eating six times a day rev up your metabolism?
  • Do crash diets crash your metabolism?
  • Does just losing weight slow it down?
  • How do you keep from quickly regaining weight when you hit your goal weight?
  • If your metabolism can truly be broken, can you fix it?

Dr. Mike Israetel comes in at about 12:19 to set the record straight.

A cofounder of Renaissance Periodization, Dr. Mike Israetel​ holds a PhD in Sport Physiology from East Tennessee State University. Formerly a professor of Exercise and Sport Science in the School of Public Health at Temple University in Philadelphia, Mike has taught several courses, including Nutrition for Public Health, Advanced Sports Nutrition and Exercise, and Nutrition and Behavior.
