The Model Health Show

When struggling with their weight, most folks are quick to point a finger at their slow or broken metabolism. But so many of our commonly accepted perceptions about metabolism are not actually rooted in science. The truth is the human metabolism and body fat are designed to work in our favor. They are powerful tools that we can harness to promote immune function, longevity, and vibrancy.

Today, I’m excited to share this interview with Dr. William Li about his research on how to eat to support metabolic health. Dr. Li is a world-renowned physician, scientist, a New York Times bestselling author, and the president and medical director of the Angiogenesis Foundation.
