Meal Timing, Fasting & Insulin Resistance with Dr. Hana Kahleova

Jun 8, 2022

Watch Episode 181 with Dr. Hana Kahleova:

Dr. Hana Kahleova is the Director of Clinical Research at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. You may remember her from episode 93, and we were so thrilled to have her back on the show! Her can-do attitude is positively empowering.

On this show, we talk about diabetes and what insulin resistance is, in addition to other topics like brown fat vs white fat, weight gain as we age, the benefits of intermittent fasting, the pros and cons of the keto diet, and more. Dr. Hana shows us (and proves to us through various studies) that we have more control over our health than we think through our diet and lifestyle alone.

Fiber is our Favorite F Word with Diabetes Dietitian & Author Lauren Plunkett

Fiber is our Favorite F Word with Diabetes Dietitian & Author Lauren Plunkett

Who says you have to be defined by a type 1 diabetes diagnosis? Who says your life can’t continue to be just as rich or fulfilling? Certainly not today’s guest. Lauren Plunkett is a registered dietitian, a diabetes education specialist, a fitness instructor, a dynamic national speaker, a plant-based nutrition advocate, and a shining beacon of positive energy, exemplifying how to live your best life with type 1 diabetes. And she does it all with so much empathy, a keen intellect, and a smile so radiant I swear you could see it from ten miles away. Lauren is also the author of the book Type One Determination, which I love because it’s from the perspective of someone who’s both a patient and an expert, offering applicable strategies to anyone suffering from type 1 diabetes. Some of our listeners might even recognize her name for her contribution to our very own Switch4Good blog. 

From Prison Rags to Plant Based Riches with David Israel

From Prison Rags to Plant Based Riches with David Israel

Okay, today’s guest has an incredibly compelling story. He’s someone who truly knows how to turn adversity into opportunity. Uber-successful serial entrepreneur, David Israel, has owned, among other things, a nightclub, a jewelry store, a chain of upscale pawnshops, and a maintenance company. But what’s most interesting, is that in 2011, while enduring the most personally challenging period in his life, he founded POP! Gourmet Foods, taking the snack industry by storm and forming partnerships with globally recognized retailers, nationally and internationally.
