Latest in Paleo 157: Fasting

March 25, 2016 | 15

On this episode, I discuss my recent 5-day fast: how it went, what I learned, and whether I’ll be doing it again. In the News & Views segment, we discuss a CNN article about fasting and longevity as well as a NY Times article that indicates intermittent fasting is becoming more widely accepted. You’ll learn about a 450-lb man who did not eat food for over a year and reduced his body to a normal size. In the Moment of Paleo, I offer some ideas about when less is more. And After the Bell features a Dr. Jason Fung presentation about fasting as an important health tool. Enjoy the show!

Reversing Type 2 Diabetes: The University of Newcastle Research with Diet Plan

March 3, 2016 | 14

Promising research from a University of Newcastle team suggests that Type 2 diabetes can be cured in just eight weeks by diet alone. CURED. Their protocol is known to be effective in subjects who have had diabetes for up to 10 years, and they are optimistic about it working for some who have had the disease even longer.

The short term, very-low calorie diet was initially designed to mimic the rapid reduction of calorie intake that results from bariatric surgery—which is known to be effective in reversing diabetes very quickly. In 2011, the Newcastle researchers conducted their first study using the diet, and the results were impressive.

Participants who had diabetes for 4 years or less were placed on an 800-calorie diet. Daily food intake was limited to three liquid meal replacements (totaling 600 calories) and three servings of non-starchy vegetables (totaling 200 calories).

Latest in Paleo 155: Sound the False Alarm!

February 29, 2016 |

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.

Latest in Paleo 154: Fiber the New Protein?

February 22, 2016 | 2

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. It’s 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. Enjoy the show!

Update: Belly, Food, and Baby—Lots of Pictures

February 3, 2016 | 8

A game called Mad Gabs turns simple phonetics into brain-twisting fun. You have to translate odd phrases like ‘Cohen Peas’ into the more common ‘go in peace.’ The answer to a game card that reads ‘Europe Art Tough Fit’ would be ‘you’re a part of it.’

You get it. Well, that’s how we announced Amy’s pregnancy to our family. We had a game day, played Mad Gabs, and we slipped in a custom clue for the grand finale. When they realized ‘Aim Ease Gnawed Cup’ translated to ‘Amy’s knocked up,’ well, let’s just say the looks on their faces were priceless.

Puzzle solved! But then, still puzzled…then excited, disbelief, squeaking, screaming, hugging!

I thought I’d share a little bit about what we’ve been up to this Winter, so read on, and you’ll learn why things have been a little quiet on the blog, see pictures of a few of our meals, and even get a 3D peak at the littlest one in the family.
