In this episode, I'm joined by the CEO and co-founder of HVMN (Health Via Modern Nutrition), Michael Brandt. We discuss the silent signs of metabolic inflexibility and what it means to be on the diabetes spectrum. From hanger to increased thirst, we take a look at symptoms society often overlooks at the expense of our long-term health. Plus, we geek out about ketones (is it really the 4th macronutrient?), the impact of carbs on our health, and what we can be doing to fuel our brains for ultimate cognitive function. Whether you want to go keto or not, this episode takes what you think you know about using food to fuel your body and flips it on its head.

Dr. Latt Mansor holds a PhD in Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics from the University of Oxford, where his research focused on the metabolism of the type 2 diabetic heart in hypoxia. He also holds an M.A. (Columbia University) and B.Sc. (Hons) (University of Nottingham) in Biotechnology. He is a world expert in physiology and metabolism, and consults with elite sport, military, clinical and research organizations.

Although his education was primarily in health sciences, Latt always believed that collaborative efforts between science and business have more potential to create an impact in improving people’s lives than each on its own.

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • A look into the silent signs that you might be struggling with a metabolic deficiency (Hint: being hangry!)
  • How fueling your brain your brain with the wrong nutrients may be leading to cognitive decline
  • How you can charge your fitness routines without relying on carb consumption
