BEYOND THE PALEO DIET - Katrina Forest, Nutritional Consultant
Beyond Paleo:Moving from a Paleo Diet to a Paleo Template
Over the last couple of years, as the popularity of the Paleo diet has expanded, a lot of controversy has emerged over exactly what a Paleo diet is. Part of the problem is that there are now a number of authors and bloggers that advocate what might generally be called a Paleo diet, but with slight variations in each case. This has unfortunately led to some confusion for people new to the “Paleo diet”.
In this class, Katrina will discuss why we should stop trying to define the “Paleo diet” and start thinking about it instead as a “Paleo template”.
What’s the difference? A Paleo diet implies a particular approach with clearly defined parameters that all people should follow. A Paleo template implies a more flexible and individualized approach that can then be customized based on the unique needs and experience of each person.
But here’s the key difference between a Paleo diet and a Paleo template: following a diet doesn’t encourage the participant to think, experiment or consider his or her specific circumstances, while following a template does.
Katrina will discuss an approach that goes “Beyond Paleo” and recognizes the biochemical individuality of each person. It also acknowledges that although observing the diet of our ancestors is an excellent starting place, it’s just that – a starting place. Handouts and Recipes will be included.
