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.
