If you've heard of 'Paleo' you probably fit into one of three categories:

  1. You're living it, and loving it
  2. You've heard of it, but don't fully get what it means other than eating like a caveman
  3. You're sick of people talking about it, whether you know what it means or not.

In this interview with Dr. Jack Wolfson 'The Paleo Cardiologist,' you will learn everything there is to know about not only the Paleo diet but also the lifestyle and how it pertains to your health.

The unique thing about Dr. Wolfson's take on the topic is that he's a real-deal cardiologist, who bailed on the traditional, Western Medicine approach to cardiac care and is now a full-time proponent of using diet and lifestyle to prevent and treat disease. He's a huge myth buster and does an excellent job of exposing many commonly held, yet erroneous beliefs about health and diet. (Vegans beware)
