This is really a show about one of my favorite topics: HOW to think about learning about your body. Angelo Coppola hosts the podcast Latest in Paleo and the site, and guiding philosophy really, that Humans Are Not Broken.
He's a writer, interviewer, devourer of research, father of five, husband, natural mover and has kept off 90 pounds for six years (a powerful transformation — deep insight after a lifetime of trying to lose weight — that he uses to connect to his tribe looking to do the same in a sustainable, healthy, long-game way). All that is cool, of course, though what really drew to me to want to interview Angelo is how he transmits his massive knowledge base about the human body in a very open-minded, kind and accessible way.
Angelo's golden rule of how to apply willpower, at 51m 29s, alone is worth the price of admission.
A few other highlights from the interview (which starts at 15m 23s):
If humans aren't broken, and we're unfit and unhappy, then what is broken? (19m 47s)
Marketing vs truly helping people (22m 52s)
Cult mentality in following a diet (25m 57s)
Angelo's food journey: from counting calories to Paleo to plant-based whole foods eating ... and the mentality that guides him along this journey (29m 25s)
On the process, not the endpoint (35m 06s)
How to digest research presented in advertising (39m 27s)
Angelo's 3 points of guidance: where to begin? (44m 54s)
The best diet for anyone (it's not what you think) (45m 10s)
We don't get healthy by way of fantasies (48m 03s)
Diet and movement and emotion (1h 05m 07s)
How can you trust yourself? (1h 19m 27s)
Aaaaand, more coffee talk, if you didn't get enough in episode 9 (1h 21m 25s)
Lots of insight in this one. Enjoy!
