Today, Jay welcomes Dr. Casey Means, a Stanford-trained physician, a leading voice in the field of metabolic health, and the co-founder of Levels, a company dedicated to improving health through continuous glucose monitoring. She is also an author, with her latest book, "Good Energy," focusing on metabolic health and its impact on overall well-being. Dr. Means has been featured in prominent publications such as The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, and Forbes. 

Dr. Casey Means highlights the alarming rise of chronic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, and obesity, which she attributes to the modern lifestyle and its impact on our metabolic systems. She emphasizes the importance of understanding metabolic health, which she describes as the body's ability to efficiently convert food into energy at the cellular level and encourages us to take control of our health by becoming more attuned to our bodies and the signals it sends. 

Jay and Dr. Means focus on the importance of a balanced diet, adequate sleep, regular physical activity, stress management, and reducing exposure to environmental toxins. And the inspiring stories and scientific evidence to illustrate how simple lifestyle changes can lead to significant improvements in health.
