Dr Lauryn Lax shares her journey through an eating disorder and how she turned this into a passion for helping people on their health journey and Megan Ellam shares her passion for low carb cooking found through healing on a ketogenic diet.

Kara, Leah and Lauryn and Megan discuss a retraction from the US Food and Drug Federation around soy and it's health benefits.  Is this the start of something bigger? We then look at a study on iodine levels.  The study suggests iodine is lower on those on a paleo diet. Is it because they are not eating iodine fortified foods such as white bread? Tune in to find out this and more!
