This week's podcast is all about good nutrition with a focus on discussing the Paleo Diet with Dr. Loren Cordain. But before our interview with Dr. Cordain, Rob and Devon took some time to talk about the difference between emotional hunger cravings and actual hunger when our stomachs are grumbling for something to eat.  We've all been there when all of a sudden we're craving ice cream, chocolate, chips, or Mc Donald's etc. out of no where during the day. Tune in as Rob and Devon give us some personal tips and answer questions such as: What causes us to emotionally eat? What are our triggers to begin emotionally eating? How can we avoid it and make healthier choices?  
If you listen often to the podcast, you may remember that we talk a lot about Paleo on the show so it was an amazing experience for Rob to talk to Dr. Cordain directly about the diet. Dr Cordain is considered to be the Founder of the Paleo Diet and we learned so much from him as he explained the origins of the Paleo diet and his research; what are some of the myths about Paleo vs. the true facts; and how Paleo compares to other diets such as a Plant-based diet or the low-carb Ketogenic Diet and so much more. We could've gone on an on talking about the Paleo Diet with Dr. Cordain!
