“You’re not sick because you’re fat. You’re fat because you are sick.” One of the best quotes out of this 2-Part interview with Cristina Curp, of The Castaway Kitchen blog and author of the best-selling new amazing cookbook, MADE WHOLE: More Than 145 Anti-Inflammatory Keto-Paleo Recipes to Nourish You From the Inside Out.
We talk about Cristina’s past, and how her health issues led her to doctor after doctor after doctor with no success. It wasn’t until SHE finally took the reins and began pushing back and changing her lifestyle and her diet that her body began to HEAL.
In her early 20’s, Christina was over-medicated due to heartburn issues. Doctors weren’t interested in the least bit about finding the root causes of her symptoms, they simply prescribed more DRUGS. Very common.
In the interview, Cristina talks about several “rock-bottom” moments in her life that inevitably led her to say ENOUGH is ENOUGH. Through a lot of her own research and testing, Cristina learned about how much she could change her health with lifestyle and dietary changes vs. relying on drugs, which typically make the problems worse, not better.

Do any of these foods above look unappetizing? We didn’t think so. If you think that making dietary and lifestyle changes mean transitioning into a life void of fun and taste, think again. Trust me, when you open up a cookbook like Cristina’s, and try some of these mouthwatering Paleo and Keto Recipes, you’ll wonder why you didn’t make the leap before.
