with Deena Barselah, Holistic Wellness Coach
Paleo, vegan, low-carb, low-fat, raw, macrobiotic, calorie-restriction…the list goes on. There are so many diets out there today, it’s hard to sift through it all. We’re also told to stay away from eggs, saturated fat, gluten, dairy, grains and so many other foods!
Join Deena Barselah, Holistic Wellness Coach, to really break this all down. Deena will share her opinion on diet trends, myths and the conventional advice out there.
Deena Barselah is a wellness coach on a mission to empower people with real food. Forget the fad diets, quick fixes and trends. Looking at tradition and what has always worked throughout history, supporting the body with real food, and paying close attention to your body’s needs is Deena’s approach. She’s overcome several health and diet challenges herself and is excited to support you. Deena recently moved to The Valley after 10 years in NYC and is loving the slower pace, access to nature and wonderfully warm and welcoming people.
