In this March 24, 2009 free audio episode, I address several listener questions, including the following:

-Listener Steven asks: “Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night; I usually go to the bathroom drink a half glass of water and go back to bed.   But sometimes I have a little craving and sometimes have a handful of one of your trail mix recipes that I have stored in the frig, or a 1/4 or 1/2 of a Bumblebar with the water.  Is this OK to do?  Are these items OK or would you recommend something else?  Is waking up in the middle of the night with a craving an indication of not getting enough of a particular nutrient (i.e. carbs)?”

-Listener Karen asks: “I'm afraid my kids are addicted to junk food, but unfortunately Ben, I can't just start feeding them goat's milk and quinoa like your kids or they will run away forever. What's your advice on changing my childrens' diet?”

-Listener Jason has a “call-in” Q&A on hydration, and I respond with discussion about a certain type of supplement that could allow you to “hyperhydrate”.
