173: Balloon Belly

On this week’s holiday episode our News & Views segment starts at Krispy Kreme to see if we can extract any good take-aways from the recent class-action lawsuit filed against the chain. Then, it’s on to a recent study about what happens when you don’t feed your gut bacteria…what do they eat instead? The segment is rounded out with coverage of recent research on whole milk for kids and a new—somewhat strange–non-pharmaceutical weight-loss pill. The Moment of Paleo segment offers thoughts on restriction and upcoming holiday feasts. And After the Bell features a talk about life’s invisible feast. Enjoy the show!
