July 10, 2018

 

Our special guest today is Dr. Scott Lear. He’s been a leading scientist in preventing heart disease for over 20 years. Scott is a professor in Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University, and he conducts research into how lifestyle can prevent and manage heart disease - and other chronic diseases. He has heart disease himself and last year began a blog called Feeling Healthy with Dr. Scott Lear.

 

Scott shares with us 3 of the most common myths he comes across in his work, and much more! Listen below.

 

 

Important topics and points you don't want to miss:

     

     >> Myth #1: Stress causes heart attacks/heart disease.

 

     >> Myth #2: Dietary cholesterol intake is associated with cholesterol levels in our bodies (a.k.a. serum cholesterol).

 

     >> Myth #3: Exercise is a great way to lose fat.

 

     >> What exercise is useful for: maintaining muscle while in a calorie deficit, maintaining metabolic rate, and sustaining fat loss long term.

 

     >> "There’s no one diet that’s going to be ideal for the entire population of the world."

 

     >> The types of research Scott would like to see in the future.
