Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Dr. John Speakman is a highly successful and decorated biologist, researcher, and author with special interest and expertise in the areas of energy balance, factors that limit expenditure, the genetic and environmental drivers of obesity, and the energetic contribution to ageing. He has been internationally recognized by Chinese, American, and European institutions for the contributions he has made to his field of study, and is the recipient of many awards for his work (too many to list in a short bio).
In their discussion, Drs. Brian, Tro, and John talk about how Dr. Speakman became interested in/introduced to energy expenditure, the difficulties and nuances involved in working with patients to help them change their eating behaviors to lose weight, studies related to the above issue, sensory specific satiety, why certain people can lose weight on a low fat diet while others lose weight on a low carb diet, postprandial dipping and related studies, the place of CGMs in the future of obesity research, and differing models of what causes hunger.
