I have placed some relevant links at the bottom of the page which I would recommend checking out when you have 5 minutes to spare. From meeting Kelli 4 years ago at the small organisation I mention in the video, to Nourishing Australia (Organisers of Nora’s tour in Australia), to a couple of podcasts with Nora talking in depth. So check them out, and if you have experienced Nora live or have read her book, would love to hear your comments. You can also buy Nora’s book here Primal Body, Primal Mind: Beyond the Paleo Diet for Total Health and a Longer Life

Nora GedgaudasHey, this is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition and I just wanted to share with you the great experience I just had over the last weekend. I was very privileged to meet Nora Gedgaudas in person and listen to her speak for the day.

Now you maybe wondering who Nora Gedgaudas is and why this has any relevance to you.

Well Nora is the author of the book – Primal Body, Primal Mind: Beyond the Paleo Diet for Total Health and a Longer Life She is also a certified Nutritional Therapist and a Neurofeedback Specialist.

And all that’s great yeah,… but why THIS book? Why Nora?

I can only speak from my own experiences over the years working as a Fitness Trainer, so bear with me as I backpeddle slightly.

About 4 years ago I stumbled upon a small organisation that were doing things a little differently in the way they were supporting people who where faced with major health issues, mainly cancer. What got me really interested, was the fact that they were helping these people through a very different approach to the regular channels. The main points of difference were 1. what these people ate and  2. they also moved them into progressive resistance training programmes, whether it be from home or at their gym.

So why is this relevant?

To cut a very long story short, the thing that fascinated me the most was WHAT they were encouraging these people to eat. In a nutshell, it was the elimination of modern day processed foods, along with a natural high fat diet, with good protein and vegetables but also the elimination of carbs from their diet as much as possible.

Combined with resistance training the results that they were getting was nothing short of amazing. It was one of the most humbling experiences I’ve ever had and it certainly made me appreciate my health a lot more. But it also helped me looked at what’s going on within the health and fitness industry, and set me on a path to find out what really is optimum health and what we can do to achieve this… as I’m sure you will agree… there’s a lot of noise out there.

Nora_gedgaudasIn the 4 years up until now, I’ve met some great people and read some great books, but Nora has managed to put an extremely confusing topic into an easy to understand informational packed resource. If you are wanting to take the right steps forward regarding your health and nutrition, I can assure you, Nora is the real deal! This book is a must read.

Whether you’re an athlete, weekend warrior or suffering from poor health, I would encourage everyone to check out Nora Gedgaudas: Beyond the Paleo Diet, because she makes total sense to me, and this book really delivers…

There’s also still time left to catch her speak here in Australia too. She is speaking at the Gold Coast on the weekend, so if you get the chance, GO…  there’s nothing better than the live experience where you get to meet many like minded people.

And that’s it… Go check her out.
