The Launch of Don’t Eat for Winter by Cian Foley was held at PEAK fitness in Waterford City on the 10th of March 2017 at 8.30pm.
The night began with a meet and greet over some healthy food and drink including salmon and an array of healthy food platters.
Dr. Rowe gave a lovely speech about the bamboo tree taking 5 years to root before then growing to huge heights and applied the analogy to Cian.
Cian then gave his talk, thanking the key people in his life, who helped and encouraged him to produce the book before getting stuck into the details of the diet.
He explained how the human body is an ancient natural machine living in a modern unnatural ecosystem and how the cards are stacked against the population because low-fat diets have been incorrectly promoted for so long. He suggested that lower carb-diets are shown to work, the evidence is there, and with the current obesity crisis now killing three times as many today as malnutrition that we’ve gotten something incredibly wrong. He quoted the phrase “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results” but has high hopes that things will change.
The night finished with a book signing followed by some drinks and conversation.
