With so much interest in health, nutrition, and food, one of the country’s most cutting-edge nutritionists has decided to bring the three elements together for an informative evening of food and talk.
Renowned nutritionist Barry Murray, who is nutritional coach to many professional and Olympic athletes has recognised that the link between nutrition and real food consistently falls short.
In the form of a dinner and talk Mr Murray has formulated an evening where he can inform diners about how to eat well without having to make severe changes to their diet.
His intention over the evening is to help people learn the secrets behind the foods we are designed to eat and how they improve health and fitness.
His programme of nutrition is based upon the concepts of Paleo. Mr Murray says: “Paleo is not just another fad diet or celebrity craze. It refers to our ancestral times and how we are genetically adapted to a certain way of living. How we eat today differs largely from how we used to eat. It is now clear that modern foods are linked to many of today’s chronic diseases such as diabetes and obesity. We are genetically designed to eat certain foods and not others.”
Mr Murray’s programme, iPaleo, is an up to date template based on our ancestral diet that takes into account our modern lifestyle. It is not a diet but rather a paradigm that can be used to follow a healthier approach to what you eat and how you eat.
Barry Murray is a performance nutritionist and health expert, having spent the last several years researching it himself and debunking a lot of the myths about diet and nutrition. “Living healthily, losing weight, and feeling good does not need to be that complicated,” he said. “The first and most important step is to eat real food that we are designed to eat.”
This Saturday Mr Murray will present a talk and dinner with Kai head chef Jessica Murphy at her Sea Road restaurant. The cost of the event is €50 including information sheets and sample recipes. Booking is essential.
