You are not what you eat

We are often directed to cut foods out of our diets due to digestive intolerance.

But could the problem lie with how we eat rather than what we eat? Join Whistler author Van Clayton Powel as he reads from his book You Are NOT What You Eat: Better Digestive Health in 7 Simple Steps on Nov. 12 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Courtenay Library.

Inspired by his own battle with chronic digestive problems, Powel was surprised to find the solution not in what he ate, but in how he ate — an approach that has been used successfully in Asia for thousands of years and fits in perfectly with the latest medical science.

A former nurse, Powel is the founder of Mind Body Fitness, Inc. and has taught advanced health and fitness techniques to thousands of clients, including Olympic athletes and coaches, the Canadian National Snowboard Team, and corporations like VISA and Intrawest. He has also developed a number of proprietary training programs, including Runner’s Yoga, 30MinuteYoga, and the Refresh and Rejuvenate stress management system.

For more information, drop by the library at 300 Sixth St., call 250-334-3369, ext. 2 or visit http://youarenotwhatyoueat.com.
