Traditional holiday dinners used to be so simple. People would gather from near and far, enjoy each other’s company, feast on secret family recipes, rub their bellies with satisfaction, and fall asleep on the couch. That was until your sister became a vegan, dad went paleo, your little brother developed a life-threatening nut allergy, and your uncle who lives off the grid in the woods adopted an insect-based diet for the sake of the planet. What’s a good-hearted host to do? What’s a guest with a special diet to do? You can Read the Entire Article by Dr. Georgia Ede in Psychology Today.
Georgia Ede, MD, is a Harvard-trained psychiatrist and nutrition consultant practicing at Smith College. She writes about food and health on her website DiagnosisDiet.com and she also writes numerous articles for Psychology Today. She became interested in nutrition after discovering a new way of eating that completely reversed a number of perplexing health problems she had developed in her early 40′s, including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and IBS. This experience led her on a quest to understand why the unorthodox diet that restored her own health is so different from the low-fat, high-fibre, plant-based diet we are taught is healthy. It turns out, she says, that nutrition is not rocket science; if you understand how food works, it all makes sense.
Dr. Ede has been a popular speaker at two of our Low Carb Conferences already and is scheduled to speak again at our West Palm Beach Event, January 19 – 21, 2018 and at our San Diego Conference, July 26 – 29, 2018

Many of her family members and friends eat special diets, some of which are very different from her own. She hopes to help you maintain holiday harmony this season by sharing some of the things she has learned as a host, guest, psychiatrist, and nutrition consultant. Read More…
