Fit and Sexy at 60!

Teresa Garceau, Owner and CEO of Cross Cuisines, is over 60, fabulous and can do a hand stand push up!!!! “The food has changed my life and I want to help as many people as I can with this,” says Teresa Garceau.

Teresa’s journey to health via the “Paleo Challenge” began when her son, a personal trainer and Cross-fit enthusiast, convinced her to change her work out routine to a more vigorous one built on constantly varied, core body, functional movements executed at a high intensity for maximum results. She also accepted altering her cooking to conform to the Paleo Diet plan and became aware of the impact it had on her health. Not only was she losing weight in the right places, but she also had more energy, and the age-equated symptoms and digestive problems were rapidly disappearing. This new insight led her on a journey to further understand the Paleo diet (which Teresa calls the health diet) and has given her inspiration to share her success story with others.

Centered on commonly available, fresh ingredients, the Cross Cuisine menu consists of mainly meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, roots and nuts; excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, refined sugar and processed foods or oils.

Advances in agriculture and food processing have drastically changed what human beings eat. However, evolution has not kept pace with the changes, leading to a host of health problems for modern man. Coronary heart disease, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, obesity, arthritis and some mental illnesses have all been scientifically linked to diets high in refined or processed carbohydrates. But, the Paleo Diet reverses human technology, replacing highly processed foods with meat, fish, vegetables and other staples that are basic to our biology and our digestive systems, leading to better health.

“For those deeply affected by grains and gluten and those simply concerned about their health, the Paleo diet has become the most suitable choice for avoiding the wrath of grains and naturally promoting overall well being. Paleo eating avoids grains and other allergy, disease promoting foods such as dairy products, HFCS and other processed foods high in sugar and salt content. Some people think that eating gluten-free foods is enough, but this still includes the consumption of spelt and other grains – resulting in inflammation, bloating, and potentially an autoimmune disease,” Living Paleo..
