There is a lot of debate about what type of diet is most beneficial for the human body. Vegans vehemently support a plant only approach, while others still count calories and avoid salt. For most of us, our bodies will tell us which type of foods we should eat by reacting adversely to a diet that doesn’t serve our health. So, have we been misled about what foods truly nourish our intricate, multifaceted systems? To find out more about the Carnivore diet Drew welcomes the author of The Carnivore Code, Dr. Paul Saladino to the podcast. Dr. Saladino may be best known for the unwarranted verbal lashing he received on the television show, The Doctors for stating his case for a strict carnivore diet. During this episode, Dr. Saladino describes the connection between food and autoimmune disease, the health woes he alleviated by living carnivore, and the studies and evidence that back up his findings.
