Daybreak Alberta host Chris dela Torre spoke with Chris Leudecke, better known as Old Man Leudecke. The Juno Award-winning folk artist is in Alberta this week in support of his album Domestic Eccentric, newly released on Truth North Records. Leudecke explained how the joys and stresses of raising twin toddlers and a baby inspired one of his most personal albums of his career, entirely written and recorded in the rural Nova Scotia cabin where he lives with his partner and children.

Chris also spoke with Melissa Hartwig, a certified sports nutritionist and co-author of the new book The Whole 30: The Thirty-Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom. The book explains the increasingly popular food program that encourages users to eliminate certain foods for 30 days to reset your body's relationship to food. Hartwig spoke about the benefits behind the Whole 30, and the science behind it. Just don't call it a diet.
