In Episode 79, Christine talks with Robb Wolf about his latest book Wired to Eat: Turn Off Cravings, Rewire Your Appetite for Weight Loss, and Determine the Foods That Work for You, which will be released March 21st. Robb wrote The New York Times bestseller, The Paleo Solution, and is a health expert, former biochemist researcher and award-winning blogger and podcaster.
We talk about what led Robb to write his new book, how it compares with the previous one, and the neuro-regulation of appetite, which hasn’t evolved with our modern “hyper-palatable” food system. Robb makes the case that our ancestors were wired to eat more and move less to survive but today we have far exceeded that with the commercialization of food and our sedentary lifestyle, resulting in “diseases of affluence.”
We also discuss the latest research on carbs showing that people have different glycemic responses to them and therefore need a more personalized approach, which Robb facilitates in his book with a 7-day carb test. He also tells you how to personalize the Paleo diet and use his 30-day reset program.
