Burn Fat by Eating Protein! Dr. Ted Naiman Tells Us How

The P:E Diet and How We Can Leverage Protein and Satiety


Dr. Ted Naiman Notable Quotes

“I learned early on that all of these diet religions is right about something. They all have a grain of truth that’s totally correct…what you really want to do is to siphon off everything these diet religions are right about and just discard all the rest—the dogma, the infighting, and the us vs. them. And that’s really what I aim to do with this book that I wrote.”
Dr. Ted Naiman

“Weight is a horrible metric. Waist circumference is a million times more important to me.”
Dr. Ted Naiman


Episode Summary

There are a lot of diets that restrict you about what you can eat, what you can’t eat, what you should eat, and what you shouldn’t eat. Here’s one that’s a little bit more flexible…as long as you prioritize eating proteins and minimizing refined fats and sugars.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to doctor and co-author to the book, The P:E Diet, Dr. Ted Naiman, to expound on this protein to energy ratio way of eating and how satiety works its way in there.
