The Not Old Better Show Author Interview Series
Welcome to The Not Old Better Show author interview series on radio and podcast. Today’s show is brought to you by Archives.com Archives.com is your one-stop shop for access to more than 11 billion records essential to family history. I’m Paul Vogelzang, and for all of us in The Not Old Better Show audience who think about our diet, worry about our diet, and spend too much time thinking about what we eat, today’s guest will help us with those subjects and give us hope about how we can address diet, wellness, and exercise.
Thank you so much for listening. We’ve got a great guest today, whom I’ll introduce in just a moment…But, quickly, if you missed any episodes, last week was our 666th episode, and we spoke to Smithsonian Associate and host of the popular PBS series “Bare Feet with Mickela Mallozzi”. Two weeks ago, I spoke with author, inspiring speaker, and writer Cynthia Covey Haller about her new book, written with her father, Stephen R. Covey, Live Life In Crescendo. Wonderful stuff…If you missed those shows, you can go back and check them out along with my entire back-catalog of shows, all free for you there on our website, NotOld-Better.com…and if you leave a review, we will read it at the end of each show…leave reviews on Apple Podcasts for us.
Eat Like a Pig, Run Like a Horse: How Food Fights Hijacked Our Health and the New Science of Exercise. That is a great title, and it’s a great title to the new book by our guest today, Anastacia Marx de Salcedo, Eat Like a Pig, Run Like a Horse, which takes us on a fascinating journey that weaves together true confessions, mad(ish) scientists, and beguiling animal stories. Marx de Salcedo shows that we need to move beyond our current diet-focused model to a new, dynamic concept of metabolism as regulated by exercise. Suddenly the answer to good health is almost embarrassingly simple. Don’t worry about what you eat. Worry about how much you move…and moving can overcome, even overwhelming, the most disgusting conditions.
That, of course, is our guest today, author Anastacia Marx de Salcedo reading from her excellent new book, Eat Like a Pig, Run Like a Horse: How Food Fights Hijacked Our Health and the New Science of Exercise. Join us as we discuss the book, deworming, and the fact that there is no magic pill. There is no perfect diet. Could it be that our underlying assumption—that what we’re eating is making us fat and sick—is just plain wrong?
Please join me in welcoming the author and science writer Anastacia Marx de Salcedo to The Not Old Better Show on radio and podcast.

My thanks to you, my wonderful Not Old Better Show audience on radio and podcast. Please be well, and be safe, which I’m telling you each show, followed by my message to eliminate assault rifles. Only members of the military use these weapons. Assault rifles are killing our children and grandchildren in the very places they learn: school. Let’s do better. Let’s talk about better.
