Simple ways to biohack your biology and save the planet in the process
Dr. Mark Hyman on his new book, The Pegan Diet
Dr. Mark Hyman joins us to discuss his new book, The Pegan Diet: 21 Practical Principles for Reclaiming Your Health in a Nutritionally Confusing World. Dr. Mark Hyman is a practicing family physician, a thirteen-time New York Times best-selling author, Board President for Clinical Affairs for the Institute for Functional Medicine, and an internationally recognized leader, speaker, educator, and advocate in the field of Functional Medicine. He noticed that Paleo and Vegan diets are both plant rich diets that focus on eating good fats and whole, unprocessed foods. The only difference is where they get their protein. In combining the best of both worlds, The Pegan Diet cuts through the noise so you can biohack your biology and save the planet in the process through regenerative agriculture, eating the rainbow, and the 75% rule.
“How do I use food to biohack my way to high performance, great energy, great focus and abundant life?” – Dr. Mark Hyman
