I had the privilege of again speaking with Joe and Terry Graedon of People’s Pharmacy for their legendary podcast and national NPR show. It will be broadcast on December 8, but stay online. We covered a lot:
*how and why I think culinary medicine offers real value to people
*what (and how) women can say to men about their health
*healthy eating for healthy holidays (and weight loss thereafter)
*the top 4 Food and Nutrition Stories of 2012: what you need to remember
I did a lot of research and preparation for it, and I’ll be unpacking it for weeks. Here are a few quickies.
What women can say to men about their health and diet especially is sometimes touchy. Men want to get healthy, be strong and lean, and take care of themselves.
They just do it differently than do women. Actually, some men just do more steps (with the Precor Treadmill– my favorite). Or the Livestrong Elliptical (ditto). And keep track using the Timex Global Trainer Speed and Distance GPS Watch. Which is also awesome.
Women can help men who are reluctant to see the doctor or lose weight: they just need the right language. I’ll cover more of this on http://manlyeating.com, and in my new book, with a revolutionary new approach to men’s health, next year.

And on the web
- www.naturaldatabase.com (regularly updated by pharmacologists and other scientists).
- www.pubmed.gov (all peer-reviewed stories, with good filters)
- www.lpi.oregonstate.edu (tremendous science, especially about cancer and immunity, part of my Dr Oz Show appearance).
P.S. Thrillingly, the Dr Oz Show put the ChefMD book in the running for the New York Times best-seller list—again! We’ll see shortly: until then, the Honeyed Chinese Chicken recipe he and I prepared is free, if you’d like to receive my Paging Dr. La Puma newsletter, “Healthy Bites“.
