Course II Annual Evolutionary Nutrition Conference and Staffan Lindeberg Memorial

Staffan Lindeberg, a great scientist, researcher, physician, and pioneer of the paleo diet, passed away in December. He did some very important paleo diet related research, and was best known for his study of the Kitavans. We will never forget his contributions.

128: Truth Bomb

On this episode, we dig into a popular recent study that tells us eating whole grains increases life expectancy; we look at whether there is validity to a claim that the Paleo diet erases the benefits of exercise, as explained by Dr. Michael Greger; I recap my 4 1/2 years of eating Paleo, offer a critique of the current direction of Paleo, and I answer a listener’s questions about my current Paleo eating framework. After the Bell, it’s a diet debate between three doctors: low-carb/high-fat, plant-based whole food, and Vegan.

In the Listener Mail segment: why I’m trying to get fats from whole foods only; whether I’m concerned about vitamin B12 & K2 levels; and tips on how to get kids to eat healthy.
