I was fortunate to get Dr. Greger to slow down (sort of: he recorded this interview from his treadmill desk, on which he walks 17 miles each day) to record a 40-minute interview for NMA Radio, and it’s my pleasure to share it with you today. It’s one of my favorite episodes to date, and when you listen, you’ll get an immediate sense for Michael’s enthusiasm and benefit from his immensely deep understanding of health and nutrition.


Here’s what we talk about in this episode:


  • Do we not need “diet” books at all?
  • Why nobody needs to give up their favorite foods
  • When we might starting living forever (it’s sooner than you think)
  • How to deal with conflicting nutrition information on the internet
  • Dr. Greger’s interesting definition of whole foods — and when we can improve on nature’s foods
  • Should Twinkies be on the Paleo diet?
  • Coffee: good for bad?
  • Dr. Greger’s thoughts on oil
