Functional medicine trailblazer Dr. Mark Hyman knows a thing or two about optimal living. A man with many titles—practicing family physician, 10-time No. 1 New York Times best-selling author, and director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, just to name a few—Dr. Hyman has been a force in the wellness world, revolutionizing our approach to eating, moving, thinking, and ultimately, thriving in transformative and healing ways. His upcoming book, Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?, aims to wade through the chaos in today’s food hysteria, including nutrition confusion, environmental factors, misinformation, and conflicting science.

In this episode, Dr. Hyman gets real about the current state of confusion about food, policies, and government practices. We also discuss a list of wellness topics and highly contested topics like, adding butter to your coffee and whether all types of dairy should be permitted in the food pyramid. A practicing "pegan," Dr. Hyman also shares the origins and makeup of this lifestyle and why everyone should consider adapting a paleo and vegan diet. Plus, we delve into the real-time effects of climate change’s impact on food production and the consumption of meat in the context of healthy food—like how eating beef can help to save the environment.

If you’re an avid follower of Dr. Hyman’s inspiring work in functional health or are looking for answers about what to eat and why, you'll want to grab a notebook and pen to record all of Dr. Hyman's invaluable tips about the who, what, where, when, and why of food.
