The human body has evolved in an environment of scarcity and uncertainty. This has created numerous metabolic pathways and adaptations into our physiology that promote high performance and optimal health.

In the modern world, people don’t experience that same variation and cycling in their life. We eat the same foods, follow similar routines, and do certain activities all the time. This can lead to stagnation, digestive issues, inflammation, and disease.

Metabolic flexibility refers to your ability to swap between different fuel sources and be able to metabolize different foods without suffering any negative side-effects. It’s a signature of a robust and well-functioning metabolism.

In this episode, Siim will talk about the characteristics of metabolic flexibility, intermittent fasting, strategies for building it, and other principles of optimal nutrition and meal timing.
