WEIGHT LOSS, INSULIN & REDLINING [OVEREXERTION SICKNESS]In this 11th Wednesdays With Will episode, Dr. Harden discusses how you can control your weight without feeling deprived.

He explains how insulin works in the human body and how you can control it.

Also, being overweight will effect a person’s joints and bones.

Listener Question
Jim from Camas, WA asked why he feels sick when he reaches a certain level of intensity. The problem is, he doesn’t know he is overexerting until it is too late. Then he feels sick to his stomach, weak in all his muscles and a little dizzy.

When he reaches this point of overexertion, or redlining as I like to call it, he is out for 20 to 30 minutes. He has to sit or lay down he feels so bad. This is pretty debilitating for him since he is a mountain climber.

What is the physiological reason for this sickness? It is lactic acid dumping into the stomach? Is it anemia? Is it a stress hormone? Listen as Dr. Will shares his knowledge on the matter.
