I welcome the fourth appearance of Dr. Ron Sinha, host of a fantastic and unique new podcast called Meta Health!
This episode covers a variety of topics related to healthy living, especially as we spend some time discussing Dr. Ron’s exciting and very informative new venture, Meta Health. If you haven’t heard his podcast, I highly recommend checking it out, as it gives you a fantastic scientific foundation—almost like a free college education! You’ll learn how fat burning works in the body, how muscle burning works, and how mitochondria functions in the body too. And because Dr. Ron is so passionate about all areas of health, the way that mental health affects our physical health is another major focus of his work.
In this episode, you’ll learn why Dr. Ron cautions us to be wary of scientific studies and he explains how observational studies actually work. You’ll also hear about Dr. Ron’s experience with the Wim Hof breathing method, learn about how people can overdose on adrenaline stimulating activities (like cold exposure and HIIT workouts) and the consequences of doing so, and much more!

Folks working from home have a wonderful advantage because they can do microworkouts all day long! [53:10]
Identify different ways to get rest, such as something creative, or walking the dog. [56:21]
Many people don't realize that that high adrenaline driving workout is actually making caloric restriction and fasting really difficult. [58:16]
