You are probably aware by now that I am a big supporter of a high fat moderate protein low carb diet particularly when compared to the standard Australian dietary guidelines.
So you might ask why would I go against style of eating?
Well for many years I ate petty much to the standard Australian dietary guidelines thinking that this was in fact a healthy way to eat.
That was until my life was turned upside down when I fell ill with a chronic disease. And it was not until several of my treating doctors suggested I revert to a low inflammatory diet like paleo.
This was a whole new world to me and something that certainly took a while to get my head around.
But now understanding the science behind it….
That 80% of our body composition is determined by what we eat and
That our standard modern diet that consists typically of a very high proportion of grain-based fat promoting
carbohydrates (300+ grams each day). So for me this is a big reason to why I now feel better than I have ever felt in my whole life.
