The Ancestral Body and The Primal Shift have joined forces to bring you this awesome FREE event! How fortunate we are to bring together two thought-leaders like Dr Ken Sikaris and Dr Zeeshan Arain to speak exclusively to The Melbourne Paleo Group on Saturday 14th of September at 9:30-11:30AM!
Ken and Zee will be covering hot topics such as the difference between sugars and starches (and how they react in the body), fasting, ketogenic diets/ ketosis, paleo and exercise, and the latest info from the recent Ancestral Health Symposium taking place in Atlanta. There will be plenty of time for a detailed Q&A session, so please come armed with your curly questions, or dream them up on the day.
Dr Ken Sikaris is Head of Chemical Pathology at Melbourne Pathology. He is a Senior Fellow of St Vincent’s Clinical School and a Clinical Associate in Biochemistry at the University of Melbourne. Ken has particular interests in diabetes, PSA testing, lipid testing and interpretation as well as quality assurance. Part of his work involves discussing the significance of pathology tests with doctors. He has presented extensively at national and international symposiums.
Dr Zeeshan Arain worked in the Accident and Emergency Department of Box Hill Hospital before making the switch to General Practice. He has also completed a Masters in Public Health and Tropical Medicine at James Cook University, and has been practicing for 10 years. Zee currently also works as the head doctor for the Melbourne Demons in the AFL, and has a fierce passion for the role of diet and nutrition in weight loss as well as the prevention and management of diseases such as diabetes, cholesterol disorders, high blood pressure and heart disease. Zee's journey is also one of personal transformation where he went from 110kg in April 2010 to 82 kg by August 2011. He has a keen interest in the ketogenic element of the Paleo lifestyle.
A note on RSVPs – There is limit of 80 places for this event. This event will likely fill up fast. Please be sure that you are able to attend before submitting your RSVP, as it may be a spot that another misses out on. Generally speaking, cancelling an RSVP within 48 hours of the event is frowned upon by this group at large, as it does not afford others adequate time to arrange for their attendance at late notice. Thanks in advance for your understanding in this matter. This will allow us to keep some of the events free of charge. We look forward to seeing new and old members on the 14th of September.
