Dr. Ted Naiman Discusses Diet

Dr. Ted Naiman, M.D., discusses the impacts of macronutrients (protein, fat, carbohydrate) on blood sugar and insulin levels (i.e. glycemic index and load), insulin resistance vs. insulin sensitivity, naturally selected human metabolic adaptations to prehistoric diet (wild foods), our likely maladaptation (from an evolutionary perspective) to foods relatively recently introduced (on an evolutionary time scale) to the human menu, and how this all may explain why the many diseases of civilization rarely or never occurred among hunter-gatherers.
