Don't eat meat. Give up gluten, forget about fats, discard dairy. Chow down supplements, fast every Wednesday and purge once a month. South Beach, Atkins, Mediterranean, how about the Neanderthal Diet?
Before you give up and have another Snickers®, hear what Kate Moore has to say in a three-part nutrition series, "Hungry for Change," starting Tuesday, January 13 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Vernetta Smith Chehalis Timberland Library.
Moore, nutritional therapist, offers some very digestible facts about how bodies work and what fuels them best. Part one examines digestion with an emphasis on whole foods; part two, on February 10, focuses on blood sugar regulation; part three, on March 10, explores the role of healthy fat in weight loss, healing and overall health. All three programs will start at 6 p.m.
As a practitioner, Moore takes an individualized approach, analysing each client's eating habits as a part of an overall lifestyle. Recommendations have a holistic goal, restoring overall health, rather that focusing on single issues such as weight loss.
Another whole food advocate, Michael Pollan, may have coined the most artful maxim about healthy eating: "Eat food, mostly plants, not too much." If only it were that easy.
All programs at Timberland libraries are free and open to the public.
