During Dave Feldman’s second appearance on the podcast we delve deeper into the results of his Ketofest experiment and how his research is revolutionizing the way we look at cholesterol. According to Dave’s ‘energy status’ theory, the body as a system anticipates its energy needs and regulates how it mobilizes long term and short term energy storage. This makes cholesterol a passenger in an energy delivery system, not an inherently harmful doer of evil. Dave also shares the secrets of his future experiments, and explains why Lipidology is an engineer’s “Holy Grail.” This is not your every day conversation!
