Latest in Paleo 168: Dr. Loren Cordain - The Paleo Diet

Loren Cordain, Ph.D. joins us on today's show. Dr. Cordain is widely regarded as the father of the modern Paleo approach to diet. We discuss everything from whether the diet should be standardized, the high-protein component of Paleo, how data about hunter-gatherer dietary patterns were collected and analyzed, why the Paleo Diet restricts legumes and potatoes, the role of plant foods, anti-nutrients, the consumption of oils, aging and longevity, calorie restriction, the Blue Zones, and much more. He is the author of The Paleo Diet, The Paleo Diet for AthletesThe Paleo Answer, The Real Paleo Diet Cookbook, many other books, and several research papers. Whether or not you've previously heard Cordain speak or lecture, you'll come away from today's show with new information. There is also a Moment of Paleo and a talk by Staffan Lindberg After the Bell.
