In this segment of the show, we discuss three recent listener emails. You can email me at angelo-at-latestinpaleo-dotcom. You can also contact me other ways.

  • Owen R.
    • Hi Angelo, hope you are doing well - really enjoyed episode 128! I'm really interested in the concept of 'whole fats' - i.e reducing your processed fats including the 'approved' ones, and only taking fats in their natural form. Can I ask you what inspired you to try this? Was it simply a matter of logic - ie - the fact that fats aren't isolated in nature any more than sugars are?All the best,
      Owen
  • Christopher R.
    • I like that you focus on whole foods and nutrition to a degree that you don't take supplements. We were exposed to the idea of "whole foods" through the documentary Forks Over Knives. While that film was an important step in our health journey, it bugs me that all the plant docs who are proposing that style of diet are also recommending supplements. You mentioned that you eat a smaller amount of high quality meat. Do you pay attention to your B12 and K2 consumption? Those are the two things that I worry about not getting while not eating animal based foods. I don't want to take supplements.Side note: any special type of sweet potato you eat? Have you tried the purple Japanese ones? Keep up the thoughtful journey.
  • Zach
    • First off love the show, obviously! I also thoroughly enjoyed the latest episode 128 and the long section on your own diet and evolution of said diet. I would say I have mimicked closely the things you have, though when its comes down to the nitty gritty of what I am eating everyday, except for dairy. We have a small farm and own a couple dairy cows and I have loved getting raw milk and using it for many things.

      Anyways, my question and I would think others would love to hear on an episode is, how do you incorporate your diet with your family, especially your kids? I have 4 boys 7, 5, 3, and 1. Feeding is obviously quite a big chore throughout the day, with at least every 20 minutes somebody saying they're hungry!

      How do you bring things like organ meats, mass amounts of fibrous vegetables, bone broths and such into their diets?

      I find its been easiest for my younger two who have grown up mostly paleo, so they do not have a hard time with these, but my older two are a struggle when it comes to trying to incorporate new or different foods. I do not try to force much on them; I don't want a battle over food every day, but obviously wish I could get them on board with more things. We are off processed foods so some days it feels like they eat nothing but potatoes and bacon :)

      Hope all is well and keep on rocking out the shows!!!

Latest in Paleo 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.

Kerry C. in Chandler, Arizona sent me an email full of questions about my current eating norms, and since these questions may be on your mind as well, I'm answering them on today's show:

  • Do you tend to eat mostly local and seasonal fruits and vegetables? Any frozen?
  • I noticed you drink less kombucha now.... how about other fermented foods or drinks, are they included in a general vegetable category? Do you make your own?
  • Do you eat dairy other than butter and ghee?
  • I have a sensitivity to gluten.... which led me down the paleo/PHD path... do the occasional grains you consume include wheat? Maybe sprouted?
  • I've found your take on legumes interesting and I do eat them sometimes.... do you cook your own, soaking and cooking for a long period of time so that the anti nutrients are decreased?
  • Do you eat many avocados? They seem so highly recommended in the paleo world.
  • I have basmati rice for my starch quite often. What do you think about the enrichment ingredients of parboiled rice? And are you concerned about arsenic? Do you eat rice noodles?

Do you have any questions for me? Email angelo@latestinpaleo.com. Please be aware that I won't be able to respond to all emails on the show. I will, however, do my best to get back to you.

Latest in Paleo 127: Bite the Bullet

On this week's show we cover some contentious topics including the recently released Bulletproof Diet; the archaeological view of Paleo diets; and weight gain. We discuss the continuing evolution of my diet as my weight drops into the 160s. Also, we take a brief look at a new Paleo TV show in Australia. The Moment of Paleo is my best sales pitch juxtaposed against high octane brains and upgraded marketing. After the Bell, it's Denise Minger who says Paleo can learn from the Vegans.

Latest in Paleo 121: Stress & the City

On today's show we discuss the topic of stress and how living in urban cities appears to affect our brains. A recent study shows that people who were raised in cities versus rural areas process stress differently. Another study examines the mental benefits of walking in nature. We talk about how our self-talk and tendency to over-generalize can cause us mental distress. And, a recent report by the World Wildlife Fund indicates that animal populations around the globe are also under stress...and dying at a fast rate. The Moment of Paleo segment is called "Becoming You." And, the After the Bell segment features a TEDx Talk, "Nature as Source Code."
