When: Saturday, October 2, 12pm-3pm
Where: CrossFit Long Island City
– The Origins and Evolution of the Western Diet: Health Implications for the 21st Century.
– Implementing the Paleo Diet with Contemporary Foods.
Professor Loren Cordain, author of “The Paleo Diet” and “The Paleo Diet for Athletes” is widely acknowledged as a leading expert on the diet of our Paleolithic ancestors. In numerous publications in the world’s best scientific journals, he has documented the dramatic health benefits of eating a diet consistent with human genetic evolution and our ancestral, Paleolithic diet. Learn how a diet based on lean meats, seafood, fresh fruits, and fresh vegetables can lead to ideal body weight, optimum health, and peak athletic performance.
The Paleo Diet is a way of eating in the modern age that best mimics diets of our hunter-gatherer ancestors – combinations of lean meats, seafood, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. By eating the foods that we are genetically adapted to eat, followers of the Paleo Diet are naturally lean, have acne-free skin, improved athletic performance, and are experiencing relief from numerous metabolic-related and autoimmune diseases.
Featuring cutting-edge nutritional information generated by his research group as well as pertinent information from medicine and anthropology, Dr. Cordain’s talks are educational and entertaining and feature early photographs of hunter-gatherers in the field, informative figures, and colorful graphs outlining the latest nutritional studies on diet and health.
