Notes from the Fall 2013 Nutrition Seminar


Happy Tuesday! Below are pretty extensive notes from the Nutrition Seminar that Greg and I (Meg) hosted last week at CFCC. Of course, we couldn’t begin to cover everything in the amount of detail we’d like to within the bounds of a two hour seminar – but this is a good overview of everything that we feel is important to being the best CFCC athlete you can be, and adopting new habits in a way that won’t make you feel crazy.

If you’re interested in a list of resources that will keep you busy for hours/days/weeks – take a look at this amazing collection of links that Erin put together last year that has a metric ton of additional information, especially if you’re interested in experimenting with eliminating or reducing your intake of certain foods to improve any digestive issues or other symptoms you might be experiencing.

ESPECIALLY if you’re new – the following is a great list of books and blogs that are excellent references and recipe sources (and contain all sorts of citations and studies if that’s your jam).

Practical Paleo, Diane Sanfilippo (book, excellent recipes and overall explanation of the “why”)

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle – Barbara Kingsolver (book, seasonal eating and sustainable farming)

In Defense of Food, Michael Pollan (book, a case for real food and how we got where we are today)

The End of Overeating, David Kessler (book, a fascinating look at how food manufacturers manipulate our desire for fat, sugar and salt)

Mark’s Daily Apple (website), The Primal Blueprint (book)

The Clothes Make the Girl (website – great reference for thyroid issues)

Whole9 (website), It Starts With Food (book)

Chris Kresser (website)
