The popularity of the Paleo movement is surging, and for many people the concept is appealing because of the state of our times: too much technology, processed food and sedentary living. But is Paleo the first of its kind? What can previous back-to-nature philosophies tell us about where the modern Paleo movement is heading? To help us explore this topic, host Tony Federico speaks with Dr. Hamilton Stapell, Assistant Professor of History at the State University of New York, New Paltz. For the second half of the show Tony has a conversation with Derrick Martin, an accountant/personal trainer who lost nearly 100 pounds following the Paleo diet.
