Welcome to the first bite-sized episode of The Proof. In these short conversations, I am joined by a guest to tackle a single topic in a brief, digestible time frame. In this episode, Layne Norton, PhD addresses recent online claims by Ben Bikman, PhD. Dr Bikman claims that if we keep insulin low and control seed oils, fat cells can stay smaller and healthier. But is there any truth to this claim?
Layne Norton, PhD is a nutrition scientist, author, and athlete. He has published tens of scientific articles, delivered seminars and workshops all over the world, and coached over 1,000 individuals in his career. Dr Norton is a highly regarded figure in the fitness and nutrition industries, and offers detailed scientific insight into this topic.
In this episode, Dr Norton takes a highly scientific approach to the topic at hand. We discuss adipocyte hypertrophy, the difference between and significance of hypertrophy versus hypoplasia, and the consequences of misinformation.
Specifically, we cover:
2:24 Dr. Bikman’s Claims
7:19 Hyperplasia and hypertrophy
12:17 Gap of Research
15:56 Why this is problematic
I hope you found this conversation and format insightful and clarifying. I look forward to hearing your thoughts in the YouTube comments.
