#76: Robb Wolf, Wired To Eat
This is the podcast I've spent the last four years waiting to bring you! My long-time personal Paleo inspiration, Robb Wolf, joins me for a conversation to chat about his new book Wired To Eat! Robb Wolf is a former research biochemist, health expert, and author of the New York Times bestseller The Paleo Solution. He has been a review editor for the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism and Journal of Evolutionary Health; serves on the board of directors of Specialty Health medical clinic in Reno, Nevada; and is a consultant for the Naval Special Warfare Resilience Program.    Wired To Eat explains how more willpower and better discipline are not the missing pieces to health and fat loss. Our genetics are working against us in the modern world of super tasty foods. In this new book you will learn about neuroregulation of appetite and how hyperpalatable foods can bypass our built in “off switch”, causing us to eat far more than we otherwise would. The genes that made our ancestors successful are setting us up for troubles today. You will learn how sleep, gut health, stress, exercise and community can work with or against our goals of health and leanness. With Wired To Eat you’ll embark on a program to rewire your appetite and regain your health. We will start with a 30 Day Reset that will normalize the neuroregulation of appetite and help us not only to eat the right amount, but also begin to appreciate simple but delicious meals. After the 30 Day Reset we will use the 7 Day Carb Test to map what specific carbohydrate foods we do best (and worst) with. This will move us beyond  one-size-fits-all dietary dogma and into the modern world of Personalized Nutrition. This system will help us take advantage of the amazing machinery that is our human body by using the latest behavior change strategies and simple biometric tracking. Wired To Eat includes over 60 whole-food recipes and includes meal plans for the 30 Day Reset as well as for autoimmune and ketogenic diets.   Show Topics: Why is the word "Paleo" becoming a bad word? "Isn't that too much meat?" Why animal protein is so vital to procreation What is the difference between The Paleo Solution and Wired to Eat?   Show Links:   Robb Wolf's books: Wired To Eat!  The Paleo Solution
