The Way Human Beings are Supposed to Eat, Part 1
April 10, 2018
Professor Tim Noakes is a South African medical doctor and a respected exercise physiologist. Decades ago, he wrote the best-selling "The Lore of Running," in which he advocated a low-fat carbo-loading diet for optimal athletic performance. But when he himself developed Type 2 Diabetes, he had second thoughts and began researching the low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) dietary paradigm. The result: He reversed his diabetes, sold 200,000 copies of his new book, "The Real Meal Revolution," but then became the target of an Inquisition-style prosecution for dietary heresy. In what became dubbed “the Nutrition Trial of the Century” Professor Noakes valiantly upheld science in the face of a concerted attack from the medical orthodoxy. We discuss how he finally prevailed. Why has the diet controversy become so politicized? Why does Professor Noakes consider the Agricultural Revolution “one of mankind’s biggest mistakes”? Why is the Banting diet particularly suited to the dietary needs of South Africans? Don’t some people do OK with carbohydrates? What’s the impact of the LCHF on athletic performance? What research is the Noakes Foundation undertaking? How is it trying to democratize low-carb dieting for the masses? Click HERE for part 2.

Relief for Autoimmune Disorders, Part 1
April 6, 2017
Dr. Terry Wahls discusses her new book, "The Wahls Protocol: Cooking for Life--The Revolutionary Modern Paleo Plan to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions." Dr. Wahls was a conventional physician who developed multiple sclerosis which was unresponsive even to powerful MS drugs. Though initially skeptical of natural medicine, she felt she had little recourse when she became wheelchair-bound, and turned to a Paleo diet. Within weeks her symptoms improved, and after several years she has achieved lasting remission. Her research led her to formulate the Wahls Protocol which has brought relief to thousands of sufferers of autoimmune disorders. How pervasive is autoimmunity? Why might diet aid recovery? Dr. Wahls dispels some misconceptions about the Paleo diet: Is it all meat? Very low carb? Are nightshades and beans permitted? Why the emphasis on bone broths? Organ meats? Seaweed? Coconut? Must all food be organic, grass-fed or wild-caught? How does the Wahls diet square with the ultra low-fat Swank diet for MS? Which supplements are beneficial? Dr. Wahls details an ongoing clinical trial meant to validate her protocol. How can one join the large community of Wahls Protocol adherents? Click HERE for part 2.

Paleo Foods Go Mainstream, Part 1
March 23, 2017
When 24-year-old Katlin Smith developed aches and pains, her doctors could provide no answers. After a friend reported benefits with an elimination diet, Katlin decided to try Paleo. So impressed was she with the efficacy of the diet at relieving her symptoms that she quit her job in a Big 8 accounting firm, and started a business making Paleo products--Simple Mills. After much trial and error in her test kitchen, she discovered ways to combine Paleo-compliant ingredients like almond flour that are delicious as well as wholesome. After just a few years, her company has become one of the fastest-growing natural products manufacturers in the country. She makes crackers, cookies, cake and bread mixes, and frostings--all free of preservatives, GMOs, emulsifiers, and 6 of the 8 most common food allergens. Her products have received multiple awards, and Smith was recently named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 Class of 2017. Click HERE for part 2.
