+ What Does Being Primal Mean?

What to eat is such a hot topic these days. It seems as if every day there is a new philosophy, or program, or book that will solve your weight or health problems. The reality is that no two people are the same. It’s true, some foods are universally bad news, some are just bad for certain people. It’s a bit of a journey sometimes to figure that out. Yes, there’s the “eat what our ancestors ate” tagline. But really, it’s about eating REAL food. Food that we have evolved to eat over thousands of years. Food that hasn’t been processed. Food that agrees with YOU. Food that makes YOU feel good. Food that DOESN’T make you sick. The saying you are what you eat really is TRUE!

Learn how to reprogram your genes, how things play out in your life is a function of activating and de-activating thousands of very specific genes. Some traits are fixed, like the color of your eyes, but some genes can be influenced by your lifestyle, don’t accept bad health because you think you are “defective” or that you have inherited some bad news gene, you have some influence on how this plays out.

In order to optimize gene expression, we need to eliminate the foods that negatively impact our cravings, metabolism, digestion, and immune system. This reprogramming of your system will transition you from relying on sugar to function, to burning fat from your body and from your food for energy.

As important as your diet is, the rest of your lifestyle is also important. Movement, sleep and stress management, all of these are essential elements of a healthy and balanced life style.

Through experimentation, accountability, support, and application, we will work together to produce a broad and balanced diet that works for you. It is my goal, that as you develop self-awareness through this program, you will be able to change your habits and relationship with food to create lasting change. I want to get you out of the “diet” mindset and into a growth mindset.

Do you have a health problem you can’t get to the bottom of? Do you feel vaguely unwell? Can’t put your finger on it? Your doctor has no answers for you either? It’s quite possible something you are eating, something that you don’t realize isn’t working for you, something you have been eating your whole life, so the connection isn’t obvious.

Compressed eating windows, intermittent fasting, fasting, keto, all hot topics these days. Learn what these are and how you can benefit from implementing them into your life when the time is right.
