Food is confusing: Plant vs. Paleo

Published on

Food is confusing: One day milk “does a body good”, the next day it causes cancer. One day we hear that eating meat will help us lose weight, the next day it’s the cause of obesity. How in the world can anyone make sense all the conflicting ideas, theories and studies? (You’d need a PhD in Biochemistry just to eat dinner!)

Over the past few years I’ve been pouring over nutritional science research from the top diets: Paleo, Atkins, Vegan, Forks Over Knives (Plant-Based), the Mediterranean Diet, etc. Where did these diets come from? How do they differ? And which is best for long-lasting health?

I was surprised to find that – amidst all chaos – there seems to be a common set of principles that all of these diets agree upon. And that’s what I’d like to share with you at Alive Berlin.

If you’re the kind of person that doesn’t necessarily like to follow a strict diet, but you want to feel confident in your eating choices, then this workshop is for you. In addition, we’ll talk about how to integrate these principles in a holistic, and positive way. This is a judgment-free zone: so if you’re brand-new, love pizza, or have your own beliefs about food, don’t fear! We welcome all opinions and eating styles in the quest for understanding.

I guarantee that when you leave you’ll feel a sense of clarity, and will have the ability to talk more intelligently about food and nutrition.
