The podcast exists to take our daily efforts in the physical world and distill usable information for you, the listener.

In Episode #9 Roger and Dr. Champ:

  • Discuss the latest fad – the Maasai diet (see pictures below).
  • Converse about the often forgotten other food source of hunter gatheres – insects.
  • Touch on the common response to a good old caveman discussion: “They did’t live long enough to get cancer and it merely went undiagnosed” with a quick rebuttal.
  • Review the latest ancestral diet/microbiota article.
  • Tell you to kill your desk chair and start standing.
  • Once again conventional wisdom gets a slap in the face as a new study shows that we need to eat more fat to make sure we absorb the vitamins in vegetables.
  • Review Nate Green’s do you have the life for that?
  • Discuss Whole9 seasonal produce guide.

    I am all about Paleo and ancestral/traditional foods but I’m not going to be drinking blood straight up any time soon. I do add it to sauces or stews when I’m cooking though. Easy enough to do, and why dump it down the drain?

      Thanks for the comments. I am the same way. Great advice on adding it in through stews or sauces.

      I don’t think I can drink it either. Roger claims he will, but I will call his bluff one day…

        We’ll see – I’m ready to back up my words when we hit Africa for the Maasai Edition Podcast!

    I’m way behind on the podcasts, having just done my own Internal Medicine boards, starting Infectious Disease fellowship, and moving across the city, just as all the posts picked back up so I’ve got a lot of catching up to do both here and at Mark’s Daily Apple. In any case, Robb Wolf has a great post here: http://robbwolf.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/thePaleoSolution_FoodMatrix.pdf to address the whole boredom with Paleo foods. It just shouldn’t be an issue if people are actually eating real, whole, seasonal food, right?

      I agree. I don’t think people get bored as much. Personally, I think they get tired of putting in the effort in making whole foods.

      Glad you’re back on the wagon and I hope your boards went well!
