What happened to low carb - have you completely switched to Paleo?

Good question that I’d love to talk about. Each individual’s dietary strategy is a response to their own unique metabolic or physiological need. I talk about low carb and Paleo the most because they apply to the broadest range of dietary needs, and frequently start people with a standard form of one or the other. After a few weeks on a general eating plan, we make individual adjustments according to that person’s response to the plan so far.

Healthy and Rich?

Ezekiel J. Emanuel, writing in last Sunday's New York Times, insists that "We Can Be Healthy And Rich" (link is external), suggests that wise cost control measures can produce greater health care efficiency in the US. There is no doubt that we need greater health in the US, although I'm not sure that cost cutting in the health care industry will take us far in that pursuit. I have no argument that we spend too much on health care, although Emanuel cites likely cuts in labor costs and the tough pill we'll have to swallow, much like the displaced agricultural workers yielded to the tractor's appearance on the scene.
