RENOWNED nutritionist Cyndi O’Meara knows what’s good for the human body, but believes it’s up to an individual to want to make a healthy change.
Ms O’Meara is in Leeton this week as part of her national Real Food for Health Tour.
She will be sharing her common sense approach towards food and debunking myths, while providing simple steps to help identify what foods are perfect for each individual body.
With 30 years of experience as a nutritionist, Ms O’Meara has already made a difference to the lives of many Leeton shire residents following a visit to town about five years ago.
“There’s a lot of success stories coming out of Leeton where people – I could give you names – have changed their lives for the better through eating the right foods and exercise of course,” she said.
“I try to educate people on the foods we are eating now and why many of them just aren’t good for us.
“Modern food isn’t great for our bodies.” Ms O’Meara will be giving a two hour talk on Tuesday evening where she will cover a range of topics.
- What is happening to our health
- What to do about an autoimmune disease
- What we should be eating
- How to become inspirational leaders in your community
“It's all about education,” Ms O’Meara said. “I provide people with the information and it’s up to them what they do with it.”
Another focus on the night will be the chemicals which are used on different food products to help them grow. Ms O’Meara also tries to educate farmers on the harm these chemicals have.
“Most of the farmers I talk to are quite willing to change the chemicals they use,” she said. “They are really open to the idea and many in the Leeton area have already changed what they do in terms of spraying these chemicals.”
The event will be held at the Leeton Soldiers Club on Tuesday night from 6pm to 8pm at a cost of $27.
