I think many of us Paleo folks have already learned that one of the biggest challenges in being healthy is that our modern world seems stacked against us and at odds with our biological wiring. Our world, which we are very lucky to inhabit, encourages us to eat processed unhealthy food, encourages us to sit and watch TV rather than walk and play, and to scroll on our phone all night rather than sleep.

The knowledge of this modern world with all its amazing technology and comfort is also the source of much of our current physical and mental challenges, but that isn’t an excuse to let go and be as sedentary and unhealthy as possible. Instead, this information can help to empower us to be mindful of our choices and educate ourselves about better ways to live. Ways that more closely aligned with what makes each of us feel good and healthy. Today on the podcast, Robb Wolf is here to discuss his new book, Wired to Eat. Robb is one of the original leaders of the Paleo movement, he is a former research biochemist, a health expert, and bestselling author of The Paleo Solution.

In today’s episode, we talk about why most diets fail and why another diet is not the answer. We dive into rewiring our bodies, a lot about carbs, and we also get into the ketogenic diet. I also bug him about his own personal training and eating routines. Robb is a ridiculously smart human being and he is also super down to earth and friendly. So I really hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did.

In our conversation we discuss:

  • Robb’s inspiration to write his new book, and how he planned to change lives.
  • How to reframe and change your mindset of guilt-based thinking about food.
  • Why it is important that our human tendencies are rewarded for movement towards favorable outcomes.
  • The carb test and how it can help determine which carbs are best suited for you.
  • The ketogenic diet, the caveats, and who it is best suited for.
  • The use of exogenous ketones and Robb’s thoughts on their use overall.
  • How to seamlessly cater for a family with different eating requirements.
  • His eating and exercise routines, and what they typically look like.
