  • Episode 157: Fasting

  • Episode 156: In the Woods

    11/03/2016 Duração: 01h14min

    A review of cancer data has Canada changing its guidelines on colon cancer screenings, while in other cancer news a study has the medical community asking whether living with cancer can be better for patients than curing it. Also in the News & Views segment, Whole Foods changes it's mind about replacing nature's packaging for oranges. Also, a new study looks at how mimicking a Paleolithic lifestyle—in the woods with no shelter—might affect metabolic health. In the Moment of Paleo the topic is it really so bad?

  • Episode 155: Sound the False Alarm!

    01/03/2016 Duração: 01h23min

    A recent study on low carb, high fat (LCHF) diets led to a prominent researcher issuing warnings about the Paleo diet, calling it dangerous, and this rippled out in the media. On this episode, we take a look at that study and show why it is so misleading and why some researchers are calling for a retraction. In other news, a new study shows major health benefits from just a little weight loss, and the CDC tells us 83 million American adults don't get enough sleep. There is also a recap of the Newcastle research, which every diabetic should be aware of. The Moment of Paleo furthers the theme of small changes, big impact. There are new book and documentary recommendations. The After the Bell segment features Dr. Ian Spreadburry's excellent talk for the New Zealand Ancestral Health Symposium further strengthening the proposition that whole food delivers good health—if you don't know the difference between acellular and cellular carbs, you will after this talk, and you'll be glad you do.

  • Episode 154: Fiber the New Protein?

    22/02/2016 Duração: 01h46min

    On this episode of Latest in Paleo, we look at recent research regarding dietary fiber, indicating benefits to health and appetite control. One study suggests the lack of gut microbiome diversity seen in people who don't eat much fiber may be passed down to future generations. And finally, is the fiber hype entering fad territory or is it legit? We also take a look at claims a Cochrane Collaboration co-founder has leveled against the pharmaceutical industry; he says they fit the definition for organized crime. This is really a must-listen segment. Also this week, we feature a Human Movement Update after the News & Views, and we look at which exercises might be most effective for the brain. The Documentary Recommendation, Moment of Paleo, and After the Bell segments all relate to The Overview Effect; how seeing things from a higher level can drastically change our thinking.
