QUESTIONS I ASK DR. NAIMAN IN THE EPISODE:

  • What’s your story (specifically, what led you to become a board-certified Family Medicine physician)?
  • How much did you learn about nutrition in med school?
  • Not all doctors have as much of an interest in diet and exercise as you do—what led you to research these areas more in depth? 
  • It’s been said about your book, The P:E Diet, that it’s “the SIMPLEST and MOST PRACTICAL diet and exercise book ever written.” What dietary pattern should we be following, most of the time?
  • How much protein should we be eating on a daily basis? Do you find that most of your patients are eating enough?
  • What are your thoughts on an 80/20 or 90/10 eating pattern, allowing room for indulgences here and there?
  • What about some of the buzz terms out there—like “gluten-free”? Your thoughts?
  • Any recommendation as to when we should eat? Or how many meals per day? Your thoughts on intermittent fasting?
  • What about diet soda? Yay or nay?
  • What types of exercise should we be doing? How often?
  • What are your recommendations for making exercise simple, practical, and approachable for everyone?
