Metabolism myths [interview]

Tyson Brown interviewed me about myths surrounding our metabolism and fat loss. This interview will help you separate fact from fiction in your journey to lose fat. Enjoy!



  • Myth: a slow metabolism means you get fat easily
  • Components of energy expenditure and our metabolism
  • Myth: humans have a body fat setpoint
  • What is adaptive thermogenesis?
  • Myth: metabolic damage
  • Why cardio sometimes doesn’t increase energy expenditure: constrained metabolism
  • Why strength training generally leads to more fat loss than cardio per time
