BH029: Dr. Ben Bikman — Raise Your Protein Intake and Your Insulin IQ

Ben Bikman believes wholeheartedly in a low carb diet. He lives it, he studies it and he educates physicians about it through his Insulin IQ organization. As an Assistant Professor and Scientist at BYU, he focuses on modern day diseases that are influenced by metabolic disorders such as obesity and diabetes. He actively spreads the word about the benefits of a low carb diet whenever, and wherever he can, including Lowcarb Breckenridge which is where we met. During our conversation, we walk through the role of protein in the metabolic system, the fuel requirements of athletes, and why it’s important to separate emotion from science when we talk about food.


Professor Bikman earned his Ph.D. in Bioenergetics and a post-doc fellowship at Duke University, Singapore in metabolic disorders.
