Is it possible to live a healthy life eating only meat?  Dr. Paul Saladino makes a very strong argument in support of the Carnivore Diet in today’s episode.  Dr. Saladino brings a mass of studies to back up the argument that humans run optimally eating only animal products.  But… there is a catch… in order to balance all of your required nutrients you must consume what he refers to as nose to tail, eating from many parts of the animal including organ meat, ligaments, tendons and even bone.  Let us know what you think of this paradigm challenging episode! Part 2 comes your way on Monday!
