Food Junkies Podcast: Dr. Stephan Guyenet Part 2, Click Here for Part 1
Dr. Stephan Guyenet received his doctorate in neuroscience and has developed expertise in the study of obesity and eating behavior. He is the author of the 2017 best-selling book: The Hungry Brain: Outsmarting the Instincts That make us Overeat. He has also designed a course-based body weight management program called the Ideal Weight Program.
One interesting aspect for us at Food Junkies is how Dr. Guyenet upholds the belief that it IS calories that matter the most when it comes to obesity (and NOT sugar specifically). He does however add that it IS the addiction to trigger foods, such as sugar that leads to overeating the calories that then lead to obesity.
