The Science of Nutrition with Kristi Storoschuk

Kristi Storoschuk is a PhD candidate in the Muscle Physiology Lab at Queen's University studying exercise, metabolic health, and mitochondrial function. She's had the privilege to work with some of the top scientists in her field and is a wealth of information on all things keto, fasting, and metabolic therapies. I learned a ton from this episode and I know you will as well.

  • Kristi's background and what is entailed with her PhD program (2:33)

  • How fasting can improve insulin (11:24)
  • Lactate threshold and its relationship to ketogenic diet and exercise (17:51)
  • Keto diet and exercise performance with a focus on skeletal muscle metabolism (24:11)
