I’ve been fascinated by nutrition and the difference it can make to people’s health since the day I changed from eating a standard healthy diet to the Zone diet in 1996, adding Paleo food choices in 2009. Not only did it change my health, it changed my career direction. I had been working in health related areas for many years, (first as a registered nurse and then as a designer of equipment for people with disabilities, I have a Diploma in Design, and post grad Diploma in Design for disability) and was looking for a change in direction. My interest in nutrition was sparked, and became a Certified Zone diet instructor. I have since studied nutrition at Massey University (to degree level). In 2009 I started working with CrossFit clients at CrossFit Auckland where I was introduced to Paleo eating. After reading “The Paleo Diet” and numerous articles on Loren Cordain’s website I needed no more convincing. I had to try out this way of eating. This was indeed the missing link for me. The Zone diet reduced most of my health issues; PMS, menstrual pain, reactive hypoglycemia and occasionally swelling knees, I also lost weight and gained more energy. However, these issues were not completely resolved and would come and go. Eating Paleo food choices was the missing link , all health problems went and they stayed away!
