I call myself a health and wellness advodate. My focus is prevention and improving quality of life. I have a good working knowledge of nutritive supplementation, a basic understanding of physiological/biochemical pathways, and the evoking of regenerative processes. For a lay person I consider myself advanced. I have a keen interest in natural health that has led me to self educate though extensive reading and research of the topic. I have been schooled through podcast interviews of prominent authorities on health, wellness and fitness as well as Amazon.com and the public library.

I am a member of the Weston A. Price Foundation. The president of this foundation is Sally Fallon Morell, MA the author of NOURISHING TRADITIONS and Eat Fat Lose Fat these well-researched books are thought-provoking guides to traditional foods which contain a startling message: Animal fats and cholesterol are not villains but vital factors in the diet, necessary for normal growth, proper function of the brain and nervous system, protection from disease and optimum energy levels.

My personal nutrition program is a ketogenic/fat burning diet consisting of approx. 60% fat, 30% protein and 10% nutrient dense carbs - I do not count calories or practice portion control. As far as calories go I consume quite a few without experiencing weight gain, but I do restrict my carb intake to only those that are nutrient dense. NO SUGAR, NO STARCH for me. I never go hungry and my cravings are virtually nonexistent. My fitness program includes yoga, strength/resistance training and cardio interval workouts. This has been working for me the past 2 1/2 years, I lost 40+ pounds and now maintain a healthy weight, I'm happy, fit and well.

My current nutrition gurus and some of their books I have read are:

Sally Fallon author of ‘Eat Fat Lose Fat’
Nora T. Gedgaudas author of ‘Primal Body- Primal Mind’
Julia Ross author of ‘The Mood Cure’ and ‘The Diet Cure’
Lierre Keith author of ‘The Vegetarian Myth’
Drs. Mike and Mary Eades authors of ‘The 6 Week Cure for the Middle-aged Middle’

My favorite cookbooks are:
‘Nourishing Traditions’ by Sally Fallon with Mary G. Enig
‘Fat an Appreciation of a Misunderstood Ingredient’ by Jennifer McLagan

Books I've found valuable for general wellness:

'The Brain Trust Program' by Larry Mcleary, M.D.
'Good Calories, Bad Calories' by Gary Taubes
'Genocide! How your Doctor's Dietary Ignorance Will Kill You!! by Dr. James E Carlson
'The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth' and ' Living the Low Carb Life' by Jonny Bowden

    I am not on the team, but read your post on the Nurturing Traditions thread, about what kinds of foods to eat...I have instinctively evolved to that place...nice to see I am doing the "right" thing. (although right now, I am choosing the lesser of two evils and am temporarily on a different plan...a medical fast for a few months, then will return to "real" food once again)

    I may join the team when I start spending more time on Sparks once again.
