Which Diet Is Right For Me Now?

You have heard – ‘let food be you medicine’ but these days it can be hard to tell what that is? There is so much information about which diet is right or better for you and also the ‘super - power’ of some foods? In this work shop we look at the main diets and the foods that make them up – explore what might be right for you?

If our environment creates our reality and health, this can either be part of the problem or part of the solution. This workshop aims to help you understand what can be done on a daily basis to provide the best possible health outcomes.

We will look at the strengths and limitations of some of the most popular diets – Paleo diet, gluten and wheat free, dairy and lactose free, vegan and vegetarian, low-carb / low-fat diets, Zone diet, Keto diet, intermittent fasting, detox diets, FODMAPs diet, plant-based diets and more. What health benefits and risks can be associated with each and what may be right for you?
