53 – Paleo bites the potato

(duration 18:04)

In this show we discuss a couple news items dealing with what paleolithic humans ate and what this means for low-carb eating, or not. Regardless of what group ate what particular foods, in the weight loss journey it’s key to recognize the role that insulin plays in fat storage. We also address an email concerning the nature of carbs and endurance training, as well as potential difficulties in gaining support for the low-carb lifestyle from those close to us. In the process of resolving disputes about diet and food, “nonviolent communication” strategies are amazingly beneficial, which focus on feelings and needs and win/win scenarios that ensure that everyone’s needs get met.
