027 – Insulin Resistance & Sleep with Dr Benjamin Bikman

Benjamin J. Bikman, Ph.D., a world renowned metabolic research scientist, is a popular speaker on human metabolism and nutrition. Backed by years of research, Dr. Bikman’s mission is to help the world appreciate the prevalence and relevance of insulin resistance. His book, “Why We Get Sick” offers a thought-provoking yet real solution to insulin resistance and how to reverse pre-diabetes, improve brain function, shed fat, and prevent diabetes. 

Dr. Bikman says science shows that by prioritising protein and healthy dietary fats and limiting refined carbohydrates, human health and metabolism thrive and insulin resistance is resolved. In May 2020, Dr. Bikman and his co-founding team of nutrition and industry experts launched the HLTH Code Complete Meal, a delicious shake for helping individuals maintain a healthy diet during a fast-paced lifestyle. Dr. Bikman has a Doctor of Philosophy in Bioenergetics from East Carolina University, a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology, and a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Brigham Young University.

In this episode, we dive into: 

“Insulin Resistance and Sleep”

  • Dr Bikman has really looked deep into fat cells and the role of insulin. What made him so fascinated about insulin resistance and exploring this so deeply? What are inflamed fat cells?
  • What can fat cells do in the body and the role of insulin? Is obesity something that can be ignored? 
  • Do certain diets predispose someone towards insulin resistance?
  • What exactly is insulin resistance? How can you know if you are insulin resistant?
  • How does insulin resistance impact all health? 
  • How can insulin resistance impact sleep?
  • How can long term poor sleep that is ignored impact how insulin behaves in your body? What are the three pillars that lead to insulin resistance?
  • What are the ways you can improve insulin resistance in terms of diet and habits? How do you actually know that you are insulin resistant and how would you know if that has improved?
  • If someone is struggling with poor sleep and insulin resistance, where should they begin?

Book Acquisition by HarperCollins India

Here’s that exciting news I spoke about to coincide with the one year anniversary of The Sleep Whisperer Podcast! Writing a book and becoming part of that magical group of authors is a dream!

Three years ago I wrote a book which I titled Sleep Whisperer, looking at sleep from a very in depth perspective, and tying together the cutting-edge science of functional medicine and eastern ancient wisdom. The story of how I wrote that book is indeed magical and a mixture of spiritual guidance and astrology(by my spiritual guide and mentor Shyam @himalayan.yogi ). It’s also been a lot of sacrifice and hard work during times that were stressful, challenging and testing in all ways.

The journey of the book from concept to acquisition is also a magical path which I will share much later. For now, I’m just humbled, grateful and quite simply excited to announce that the book has been acquired by Sonal Nerurkar @sonal_nerurkar of @harpercollinsin HarperCollins India! Sonal’s faith in the book has been unwavering and I’ll forever be grateful for it. I can’t wait for the final book release next year!

None of this would be possible without the trust, hard work, dedication and patience of my most beautifully warm literary agent Jayapriya Vasudevan @jayapriyavasudevan of Jacaranda Literary Agency. I cannot put into words what her belief in the book and being my warrior for it means to me.

I’m also deeply grateful for the dear colleagues and mentors who have made contributions to the book. That is a surprise for later! You can follow everything about the sleep podcast and book at @mysleepwhisperer

#testimonial Deepa's detailed approach and calm demeanour makes you feel you are in the hands of a healer. She is extremely knowledgeable and I can lean on her expertise. She answered all my queries. Highly recommend Phytothrive. Deepa has extensive knowledge in functional nutrition and wholistic wellness - her approach is deep rooted and methodical. It was truly life changing for me! I have learned so much from Deepa. I am able to better understand the why's and how's of eating for a healthy mind and body. I had chronic inflammation, insomnia and pain when I started consulting with Deepa. These eight months have been therapeutic in so many ways. I do feel empowered by the knowledge and tools that Deepa has painstakingly explained through her detailed notes and chats. I am really grateful for her guidance.

Truth is tricky. It’s so easy to try a new diet or protocol and slip into denial over symptoms that arise. A classic version of this is missing a period after intermittent fasting but trying to ignore it. For a woman your cycle is as vital in information as a lab test!⁣


💛☸️💮💜💛⚛️💮💜💛⚛️💮💜💛⚛️⁣


Have you tried a new diet or protocol and ever convinced yourself that it’s working for you just because you’ve lost a lot of weight? Weight loss has become the highest parameter of efficacy even when there is chaos happening within which can include and not limited to:⁣

💛Frequent headaches ⁣

☸️Dysfunctional cycle⁣

💮Low iron or B12 within few months⁣

💜Frequent fevers and coughs⁣

💛Bad skin⁣

☸️Poor quality of sleep even if you are sleeping nine hours⁣

💮Mood fluctuation that includes anger, sadness and overwhelm⁣


💛☸️💮💜💛☸️💮💜💛☸️💮💜💛☸️⁣


Weight loss should not be enough if all this is happening as well. Health should come before anything else.⁣
