The Culinary Cardiologist

Rob Siegel is a cardiologist who joined a big group of us last week, before seeing “Star Trek,” for dinner at The Brooklyn Diner (not the best place for a meal, but a decent option near the Ziegfield Theater). There were so many of us, we were split into two groups, and, unfortunately, I wasn’t at Rob’s table; Craig was, however, and he reports that Rob–again, a cardiologist–ordered a bacon cheeseburger. Rob, a thoughtful, funny guy, shrugged his shoulders and began explaining his theories about nutrition, health, and eating, theories that led to a discussion later that night which concluded: “Why don’t we do a Q&A on my blog?” So here’s that Q&A. And if you enjoy Rob’s sensibility, and want to read more, you can read his blog–Let Them Eat Cake–on the Psychology Today website.
