So. As I mentioned in a previous thread instead of hiring a nutritionist for a "Lunch & Learn" at work this month, I talked them into letting me give the presentation! \o/
My audience is about 30 men, blue collar workers, middle/middle class and lower middle class type guys. They drive pick up trucks, they hunt/fish, they like to say "Get R Done".
I can't go full blown Paleo on them because #1 that is not what my place of employment is looking for and #2 it's a bit too much information for beginners.
Points I plan to make:
I used to say Eat Less / Move More, but I think a truer statement is EAT BETTER / MOVE MORE. I will talk a little about fitness, my work does provide a free membership at a health club only 3 of them use.
I want them eating real whole foods and not boxed packaged stuff.
Reducing grain based carbs and getting fiber from fruits and vegetables.
Don't drink your calories (lots of soda drinkers), drink water/coffee/tea.
I plan on reviewing some typical fast food meals. We have a lot of guys that eat out at McDonalds and Popeyes every single day.
Because I have hunters, I do want to stress how awesome their fresh meat and fish is for them.
We also have a few diabetics, so I need to address that at least a little. One diabetic guy sits across from me and drinks Strawberry Crush while eating his cookies and chips for breakfast every morning. It's crazy!
I know I am not going to get through to everyone, but if even one of these guys improves their health and diet because of something I said, that would make me happy.
I WOULD LOVE SOME IDEAS OF INFORMATION TO INCLUDE, ESPECIALLY WITH THE UNDERSTANDING OF WHO MY AUDIENCE IS.
