Nutritional Biochemistry

I often get asked, ‘Which diet works best?’. In my view, this is simply the wrong question. Nutritional biochemistry is a powerful lever in our longevity toolkit, but it is much more than fad diets or the number on the bathroom scale. A better question might be, “how can I use nutrition to support my metabolic health?”

Reframing the goal toward metabolic health is a critical starting point. From there, you can combine general principles of nutrition science (such as how much protein you need) with personalization tactics (such as using a CGM to monitor glucose levels) to build a nutrition plan that makes sense for you.

See the collection of audio clips, podcasts, and articles below to learn more about my nutrition and fasting framework.
