Crystal Fieldhouse on What is Paleo: Low Carb Down Under

Low Carb Down Under

At the Low Carb Down Under seminar in Byron, I gave an overview of the Paleo Diet and my thoughts on Paleo being about more than just what we are eating.

I do think that Paleo is about eating, sleeping and moving in tune with our basic biology.

A focus on all three will help us to “turn on” the genes for good health and vitality and turn off the expression of genes that contribute to chronic disease and obesity.
It also encourages our hormones to cycle in more natural rhythms.

I shared our story.
How my husband, Andrew and I started out on our journey to a leaner, healthier us with a 30-day Paleo Challenge that never really ended because we were feeling so much better and getting such good results!

When the body fat started falling off of us and we noticed that hayfever, asthma, bloating, eczema and acne symptoms were not bothering us so much anymore, we figured we were on to something pretty good.
So we decided to just keep going.

Crystal & Andrew, Before and After Paleo

My take home messages on the night were:

  • We should eat what we are genetically designed to eat, not what food scientists have designed for us to eat.
  • Food has the power to alter our gene espression and regulate our hormones. (And, good food has the power to make us really thrive!)
  • We need to tune into our basic biology and work with our bodies, not against them.

I gave some practical tips for how to get started on a Paleo approach and also (importantly) how to keep it going.

You can find these tips in a free Good Food Guide download here.
