How to Eat for Optimal Health with Cyndi O'Meara
"But people have been eating meat for years..."
"Bread has been a staple since the beginning of time and no one had a gluten problem back then..."
We've all heard these remarks before, and in fact, they're not wrong. But thousands of years ago, people ate these things as they came from Mother Nature, not pumped with chemicals and additives our modern food cultured has introduced. So how can we get back to those basics, eating real food the way it was intended?
In this week's episode of the Food Matters Podcast, James talks with healthy living expert, Cyndi O'Meara and they tackle that exact issue, plus how to get back to eating the foods that will lead to an optimal life.
Cyndi is a nutritionist, best-selling author, international speaker and founder of 'Changing Habits'. Not your standard nutritionist, Cyndi disagrees with low-fat, low-calorie diets, and believes that cheat days are an important part of a well-balanced diet. She must be doing something right because she maintains a healthy weight and has never (in her whole life!) taken an antibiotic, pain-killer, or any other form of medication.
