We've Been SO Wrong About Exercise, Metabolism & Weight Loss! | Herman Pontzer, PhD


Episode 96 | Herman Pontzer, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Evolutionary Anthropology and Research Associate Professor of Global Health at Duke University, investigates how our species’ evolutionary past shapes our lives today. His team conducted the first measurements of daily energy expenditure in traditional hunter-gatherers and in non-human apes, with findings that have challenged the way we think about diet, exercise, metabolism, and health. Dr. Pontzer’s new book, Burn: New Research Blows the Lid Off How We Really Burn Calories, Lose Weight, and Stay Healthy, was published in March, 2021. In the episode, he shares why “eat less, exercise more” is flawed advice for fat loss, what we should be relying on BESIDES exercise for weight loss and maintenance, a new-and-improved tv show structure that’d work better than The Biggest Loser...and more!
