Ketones, Protein & Cholesterol with Chris Irvin with Dr. Stephanie Estima


We welcome Chris Irvin to the Better Show this week, a health researcher, writer and educator on all things low carb and keto for the masses. He has written such titles as ”Keto Answers”, “Mommy Do I Have to Eat This?” as well as hosting a podcast you may know of already, “Perfect Keto”. Today we started the episode with a brief discussion about raising children as Chris is a recent father, and quickly dove into the Keto Diet. We touch on how the science and data has been updated on ketosis and what type of Ketone levels he prefers. We chat about exogenous ketones and how they can be used for boosting things such as brain function and mental alertness. We talk inflammation, protein misconceptions and how important protein is later in life. We touch on the recent cholesterol craze before rounding out our discussion with glycation, before hearing all about Biohealth and Chris’s other endeavours.

I’m Dr. Stephanie

Part geek, part magic, and all the way passionate about being a well-lived woman.

I want to throw my grandkids in the air in my 70’s. I want to be squatting even more weight than I am now, and putting my OWN luggage in the overhead bin. Sound like weird goals? For me these are just some of the little things that represent a life well-lived.

My health is MY job – I’ll be damned if I rely on luck, ‘good genes’ or a cocktail of drugs that over promise and under deliver.

The Betty Body is my first book-baby, and a collection of what I’ve learned after thousands of clinical hours, hundreds of conversations with the world’s top experts, and most importantly…

This book is an outline of what took ME from “rock-bottom health” at 38, to being my own version of a Betty in my perimenopausal mid 40’s. A woman who is physically strong, full of energy, enjoys mental clarity, great sex and a joyful family life. Is it all roses? Of course not. But I have the stamina and tools to deal with the push and pull of life so that it doesn’t turn into chronic stress.

I want this for you too. Let’s go Bettys!
