Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. In this special episode, Brian hosts a round table discussion with Dr. Nicholas Norwitz, Dr. Ben Bikman, and Dr. Ben Bocchicchio on the topic of fat as it relates to metabolic health and weight loss (especially, visceral fat, subcutaneous fat, muscle mass, and the relationship between these).

In their discussion, Brian and guests talk about the possible purposes of subcutaneous fat and visceral fat from an evolutionary perspective, the compositional and behavioral differences between these two types of fat, the usefulness of various markers for judging the metabolic health of a person, the powerful relationship between muscle building and visceral fat, the differences between white and brown adipose tissue, why lowering the number on the scale is not the best indicator of metabolic health, and a number of different related studies.
