So many people think the only way to lose weight and get healthy is by following a super-strict, bland, and joyless diet—but that is simply not the case! By removing ultra-processed junk from our diets and eating real, whole foods with specific nutrients that support our physiology, we can ditch the diet, fix our metabolism, and shed unwanted weight.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Dr. William Li to discuss how to get off yo-yo dieting and find an eating approach that will work for you for the long haul. Dhru and Dr. Li discuss which foods cause weight gain and slow metabolism, which foods help burn body fat and heal your metabolism, and where you can find quality sources of good, healthy food.
Among other things, they also discuss the pillars of Dr. Li’s MediterAsian diet, the importance of brown fat, and how eating a diversity of plant foods is key for unlocking gut-healing phytochemicals as well as which ones can help fight inflammation and prevent disease.
Dr. William Li is an internationally renowned physician, scientist, and author of the New York Times bestseller, Eat to Beat Disease: The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself. His groundbreaking research has led to the development of more than 30 new medical treatments that impact care for more than 70 diseases, including diabetes, blindness, heart disease, and obesity.
His TED Talk, “Can We Eat to Starve Cancer?” has garnered more than 11 million views. Dr. Li has appeared on Good Morning America, CNN, CNBC, Rachel Ray, and Live with Kelly & Ryan, and he has been featured in USA Today, Time Magazine, The Atlantic, and O Magazine. He is the President and Medical Director of the Angiogenesis Foundation, which leads global initiatives on food as medicine. His newest book, Eat to Beat Your Diet: Burn Fat, Heal Your Metabolism, and Live Longer, will be released on March 21, 2023.
