What We Talk About:

- How body fat works…what it does in our bodies
- The different types of fat: subcutaneous fat vs. visceral fat
- All fat is not equal
- The relationship between fat and bacteria / the micro-biome….how fiber and probiotics help
- Fat and hormones: a complicated story
- How not getting enough sleep can cause fat gain
- Gender matters – and men, you have it easier! (sigh. sigh.)
