Dr. Langer stresses that psychology, not just biology, will be the future of medicine as data continues to demonstrate that presuppositions shape our bodies, but most still fail to recognize mind-body unity.

Shawn Stevenson explains that by focusing on adequate protein intake, we prompt more calorie burning because protein digestion utilizes the most energy. He advises against isolating macros, saying we evolved eating whole foods not calories; real ingredients build better tissues and gene expression. Stevenson notes calorie counts are rough estimates, not precise lab measurements, so quality matters more than quantity for metabolic health. Though calories can loosely guide appropriate intake, he stresses we should ultimately judge food as human fuel versus processed non-food.LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE!Sign up for the Greatness newsletter!
Have you LISTENED TO THE FULL EPISODE yet?The Glucose Goddess believes the key to balancing health with enjoying sugary treats is understanding how our physiology interacts with different foods, not extreme restriction, since deprivation inevitably fails. She advises maximizing pleasure while minimizing blood sugar crashes and inflammation by only having sweets after a full meal, never on an empty stomach, as spiking glucose then crashing causes addictive cravings. Knowing how to indulge smartly, like saving sweet breakfast pastries to enjoy later as dessert, provides sanity in our food environment without forcing people to fully cut out their favorite comforts. Ultimately, rediscovering simple, ancestral wisdom about how our bodies work allows for moderation and self-care rather than all-or-nothing, unhealthy relationships with food.Sign up for the Greatness newsletter!
