Breathe Better, Sleep Better, Live Better Podcast

One of the most common questions I get asked is how I can stay so thin and healthy. Kathy and I answered this question in a previous podcast (How I Stay Thin, Happy and Healthy), but I wanted to go into more detail about the who, what, when, where, how and why we eat as it relates to our health. I’m not a nutritionist, but questions about food and what I eat is so common that I though it was important to address this important issue, from a sleep and breathing perspective.

Why are our kids sicker, fatter these days? Dr. Leonardo Trasande, author of the book, Sicker, Fatter, Poorer: The urgent threat of hormone-disrupting chemicals to our health and future…and what we can do about it, answers this question. I’m so excited to have the privilege of interviewing the author about this important topic on this episode today. He will answer the following:
