discipline, election, health, impulsivity, instant gratification, long hours, sleep, stress, will power, work
On this week's News & Views segment we discuss how long work hours can affect health, the importance of sleep and how it affects food choices, and how various levels of impulsivity are related to fast food consumption. This leads to examining the difference between will power and discipline in the Moment of Paleo segment. And the After the Bell segment features a talk that delves into what our desire for instant gratification may predict about us. Notably, our discussions may also be useful for some in dealing with post-election stress.

acellular carbs, ancestral health symposium, cdc, cellular carbs, high fat, ian spreadburry, newcastle diabetes research, paleo diet, sleep, weight loss, whole food
A recent study on low carb, high fat (LCHF) diets led to a prominent researcher issuing warnings about the Paleo diet, calling it dangerous, and this rippled out in the media. On this episode, we take a look at that study and show why it is so misleading and why some researchers are calling for a retraction. In other news, a new study shows major health benefits from just a little weight loss, and the CDC tells us 83 million American adults don't get enough sleep. There is also a recap of the Newcastle research, which every diabetic should be aware of.
The Moment of Paleo furthers the theme of small changes, big impact. There are new book and documentary recommendations. The After the Bell segment features Dr. Ian Spreadburry's excellent talk for the New Zealand Ancestral Health Symposium further strengthening the proposition that whole food delivers good health—if you don't know the difference between acellular and cellular carbs, you will after this talk, and you'll be glad you do. Enjoy the show!
