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!

dietary fat, dr. oz, exercise, fasting, fat, gut bacteria, michelle obama, microbiome, wade davis
On this week's show, I have an excellent documentary recommendation; we discuss the TIME Magazine article about dietary fat (and point out the elephant in the room that they virtually ignore); we talk about Dr. Oz's appearance before Congress and their idea of creating a Master Brand List to help with weight loss; Michelle Obama says her Ivy League education did not prepare her to make food choices for her children, and I suggest why that is irrelevant; then, we discuss a new study about the benefits of a 72-hour fast; also, we cover a story about how exercise might improve the condition of our gut microbiomes. In the Moment of Paleo we discuss the Possible and the Impossible. And, After the Bell, we'll hear a presentation about why we should preserve the indigenous populations around the world.
