Event Description

Should you eat like a caveman or office cubicle dweller – that’s the basis of a free seminar and book-signing sponsored by Spectrum Athletic Clubs and featuring Nell Stephenson, author of “PALEOISTA: Gain Energy, Get Lean, and Feel Fabulous with the Diet You Were Born to Eat.”  The benefits of embracing an “ancestral diet” (i.e., grass-fed meats, free-range poultry, wild fish, fresh vegetables, fruit and natural fats like nuts) will be explored at the presentation on Tuesday, June 26th at 7 p.m. at the South Bay location (2250 Park Place in El Segundo).

Stephenson, who gained notoriety by co-authoring the “The Paleo Diet Cookbook,” asserts that our “hunter-gather” roots are what our bodies require to function at its best.  Instead, we have embraced “diets of convenience,” which are foods rich in dairy, salt, refined sugar and processed oil. A self-proclaimed “Paleoista,” Stephenson insists that the human race is intended to eat off the land (i.e., what walks on it, grows from it, or swims in its waters) and in doing so will lose weight, gain energy and prevent diseases including hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and even cancer.

“PALEOISTA” will be available for purchase ($23) at the presentation/signing. Members and non-members are welcome, but space is limited.  Reservations are recommended by contacting Dan Schwab at dschwab@spectrumclubs.com.
