In this episode, we have a very cute couple who joined us as part of the 5th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2012. They are Jeff and Dee Miles from the “Better Choices Better Body” blog. Listen in as we talk about whether carbohydrates should be a part of your “balanced” diet, why eating starch is probably not as optimal a way to lose weight as a prominent low-fat guru would have you believe, why carbohydrate consumption is a more likely explanation for why we are getting fat, the good and bad of the current gluten-free trend, examining Gary Taubes’ theories about the role exercise plays in weight loss, whether healthy men should be taking statin drugs or not, the energy expenditure differences between our Paleo ancestors and modern man that might just surprise you and how to respond to the naysayers who think your high-fat diet is gonna kill you. We’re never short on opinions about these health headlines, so tune in to hear what Jimmy, Mindy, Jeff and Dee have to say about these and more. So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk about it!
