Yesterday, Dr. D’Adamo gave a lecture in reference to the GenoType Diet. Although he and I have frequent conversations about it, especially when determining the type for the clinic patients, it was the first time I have been able to witness him lecturing about it in its entirety and in public. For those of you that have ever had the opportunity to personally witness Dr. D. lecturing, I am sure you will concur. What an amazing speaker. The dynamic energy that he expels is so capturing. He is not a lullaby lecturer. The lecture was very well received, and I think all the attendees got quite a bit from the Q&A session.
After the lecture, the clinic spent some time genotyping the attendees. I really enjoyed seeing the looks of anticipation involved as people waited to be told their genotype. It is somewhat similar to watching a child unwrap a birthday present. Very much like the exciting anticipation I see on the BTD forums. I can’t wait for the book to hit the shelves so that I can start blogging about it, but I guess we all need to wait in anticipation.
Martha was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule to organize a yoga class for the clinic and NAP staff. We had our first session this past Wednesday. Although being familiar with yoga, it was the first class I have ever attended and it was amazing! Amy, our instructor, was wonderful. The next morning, to my surprise, I was so sore. I exercise 3-4 times per week, and I was not expecting to feel quite that way. Don’t get me wrong; it was the good kind of sore that lets you know that you did something. The thing I liked best about it was that I was sore in those hard to train muscle areas, and I did not have to lift a single weight.
