In this special podcast, David Gornoski sits down with Peter Dobromylskyj, veterinary anesthetist and nutrition blogger at Hyper Lipid. David and Peter talk about the difference between running metabolism on glucose and running metabolism on fat; the purpose of insulin resistance; the role of reactive oxygen species; the difference between monounsaturated fat and polyunsaturated fat; the harmful effects of vegetable and seed oils; the benefits of carnivore diet; and more. Is it beneficial to consume a mixed diet while avoiding PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids)? In what ways are stearic acids beneficial? How do our cells handle long-term seed oil consumption? Is sugar or seed oils the primary driver of the modern metabolic syndrome epidemic? Is visceral fat bad for us?
