90 – Listener Q&A about drinking, vegetarian and soy, self-image, fasting


(duration 26:55)In this show (sans Kev) I cover various questions from podcast listeners and our responses to them. Some take-aways: Drink water as your main libation; avoid overly sweet (carb-rich) drinks and minimize alcohol consumption; soy is not exactly a health food, in addition to not being Paleo; ovo-lacto-pesco vegetarianism is much better than just being a lousy hunter;) reduce your percentage of calories from carbs and increase your percentage from fat; developing a healthy self-image entails an inner process of self-acceptance, fostering a compassionate relationship with oneself; use nonviolent communication to understand and help yourself and others meet needs in life-enriching ways; intermittent fasting and especially caloric restriction have some health and longevity benefits.
