Dr. M’s Women and Children First Podcast #34 Stephan Guyenet, PhD – Childhood Obesity Part IV – Neuroscience of Food Choice
This week, I sit down with Dr. Stephan J. Guyenet, a neuroscientist, thinker and educator. After earning a BS in biochemistry at the University of Virginia, he completed a PhD in neuroscience at the University of Washington, then went on to study the neuroscience of obesity and eating behavior as a postdoctoral fellow. He has over 12 years of history in the neuroscience research world studying neurodegenerative disease and the neuroscience of body fatness. His mission is to advance science and public health as a researcher, science consultant, and science communicator. Publishing a book, The Hungry Brain, in 2017, he laid out the framework for understanding how our brains work with food. It was named one of the best books of the year by Publishers Weekly and called “essential” by the New York Times Book Review.
Finally, he is the founder and director of Red Pen Reviews, which publishes the most informative, consistent, and unbiased popular health and nutrition book reviews available.
This hour long conversation is very stimulating as we dive headlong into the upstream targets of food choice and body outcome.
