If the "keto" (or otherwise low carb) diet just doesn't fly with you, and you feel like you've always done well on carbs - LISTEN UP BECAUSE YOU'RE RIGHT!
At least that's what the work of Dr. Ray Peat implies, and the countless scientific research and studies to back up his theories. Georgi is one such researcher who follows his work and is truly an expert on all things metabolic health.
I spoke with Georgi to get the high-level (i.e. understandable!) summary of the theory, how it works, how you can implement it into your everyday life (and diet), and why you should care. Georgi shared countless insights on the dangers of a low-carb diet, how we ultimately thrive on sugar, and tips & tricks for increasing your longevity and reducing your risk of disease. This is science-backed knowledge you (unfortunately) won't hear often, and it's most definitely worth a listen if you're looking to eat and live in a way that boosts your metabolism - not degrade it.
