The Dangerous Truth about Protein - Janice Stanger, Ph.D.

The Dangerous Truth about Protein

A free lecture by Janice Stanger Ph.D. A presentation of the Vegetarian Society of Hawaii

Protein is the most misunderstood and overhyped nutrient. Popular myths hide basic facts: what protein is made of, how many kinds of protein there are, what happens to excess protein when you eat too much.

This presentation will transform your understanding of protein with must-know information on three dangers of consuming too much and the wrong kinds of protein. You'll also learn the truth behind three commonplace fallacies that keep you eating foods that can wreck your health.

Discover the secret of the whole foods, plant based diet that will get you an optimal amount of protein and all the other nutrients as well. And you don't have to count grams of protein.

Janice Stanger, Ph.D.  is a nutrition expert, educator, speaker, and author of The Perfect Formula Diet: How To Lose Weight and Get Healthy Now With Six Kinds of Whole Foods. Her mission is to provide you with solid, yet little-known, information on whole foods, plant-based diets so you can choose your diet based on facts, not myths.

Janice has a Ph.D. in Human Development and Aging from University of California, San Francisco. She is certified in plant-based nutrition through the T. Colin Campbell Foundation and  has an M.B.A. from University of California, Berkeley. She is in her eighteenth year of critically analyzing scientific studies on nutrition and health.

    I feel the speaker did the audience an injustice by explicitly saying that all protein isolates and concentrates are not good for protein supplementation, especially considering the audience demographic and issues with poor absorption as we age (not to mention a decreased appetite).

    The speaker was factual but not engaging. I did not feel like this meetup was worth my time.
