Paleo – A Border Success
01 March 2015
Cooking sensation and The Paleo Way author, Pete Evans, presented an interactive workshop in Albury, showcasing the benefits of adopting the paleo diet. The paleo lifestyle is essentially about eating whole, unprocessed, nutrient-dense foods, such as grass fed meat, wild-caught seafood, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. The diet avoids any processed foods such a grains, sugars and dairy.Aspire director Lizzie Pogson, was instrumental in convincing Pete to include Albury in his Australian tour of The Paleo Way. Lizzie has been following the paleo lifestyle herself for five months and has experienced a great deal of success in weight loss, losing 17 kilograms. Her asthma symptoms have also improved significantly – to the point where she feels they are almost non-existent.
Over 400 people attended Pete’s workshop and with families having children with autism and related condition reporting vast improvement in behaviours and well being, Lizzie will be looking to encourage Pete to return again to work directly with the Disability sector.
Lizzie is establishing a supporters’ group for those who wish to adopt a cleaner way of eating and living and anyone interested can email their contact details to email@example.com.
