A day raising awareness about the power of real food.
Katie & Giancarlo Caldesi
“We’re supporting Real Food Day because we believe eating food that is natural and unprocessed is better for our family’s health. Since we teach how to cook food from scratch, we make sure we live by the same message!”
Something was seriously wrong with Giancarlo Caldesi. The successful, energetic, larger than life character was listless, overweight and depressed. He had excruciating pain in his joints and everything was an effort.
I am 66 years old and had been overweight my entire life; a fat baby, chubby toddler, plump adolescent and an overweight adult. On and off I had dieted and done a couple of periods of Weight Watchers. Each time losing a stone or so… before I lapsed and the weight crept up again.
I started getting interested in nutrition and healthy lifestyles three years ago, when our son Finn – now 14 – got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. The diagnosis was a shock for all of us as there was no history of diabetes in our family.
