Eat to Beat Your Metabolism with Dr. William Li

Sep 6, 2023

Is it possible to turn back the clock on our metabolism, burn fat, and increase longevity, all while being able to enjoy the food we eat? According to our guest today, it most certainly is.

Dr. William Li is an internal medicine specialist, scientist, and New York Times best-selling author.  His groundbreaking work in the field of angiogenesis – which is the process of developing new blood vessels in the body – has led to 40 new medical treatments for cancer, diabetes, and obesity, to name a few. 

In his new book, Eat to Beat Your Diet: Burn Fat, Heal Your Metabolism, and Live Longer, Dr. Li shatters some of the myths we’ve been conditioned to believe about metabolism, weight loss, and the role fat plays in the human body. 

In this wildly informative episode, we take a deep dive into what we should actually be eating and doing to be the healthiest, fittest version of ourselves!
