In part 2 of this series on Metabolic Flexibility different approaches to metabolic flexibility are covered. The metabolism can be kept flexible by switching diet and exercise regimes, cycling the diet repeatedly and/or using special dietary tools like ketodiets, bodybuilding diets, intermittent fasting and others.
Metabolic flexibility is the ability to switch from one fuel to the other quickly based on food availability and fuel demand. You don’t want a fast metabolism, you want a flexible metabolism instead. You don’t want Usain Bolt unless he can jump hurdles, do handstands, and juggle flaming swords too. A flexible metabolism is a great multitasker. It’s not just good at burning sugar; it excels at burning fat too. So how do we get a flexible metabolism? That’s what we cover in this episode.
