The Hungry Brain with Stephan Guyenet

Episode 381

Today’s guest is Stephan Guyenet, PHD and author of a very popular book – The Hungry Brain: Outsmarting the Instincts That Make Us Overeat.

We dive into A LOT of topics, but all centered around why people overeat, gain body fat, and sometimes cannot control this (or so they think). We also dive into the brain and hormonal system’s influence on this idea of gaining excess body fat and overeating.

Check out his book The Hungry Brain and his latest project, Red Pen Reviews.
