A shameless Chris removes his belt at an all-you-can-eat buffet, which leads Jonathan to talk about the keto diet. How does it compare to other diets and will it do anything to your diabetes, cancer, or epilepsy? Learn about the mysterious food stuff known was “tufo”; hear someone say “carby” a lot; and watch in horror as Jonathan drinks a whole bottle of nail polish remover. Also: how does hormone replacement therapy compare to vaginal moisturizers for vaginal dryness; Chris talks about how much he loves the phrase “clot busters” and what to watch out for if you think you’re having a stroke; and Jonathan and Chris have a very important announcement. They placed it at the end of the show so that you have to listen to the whole episode to get to it.
