Over the past 40 years, we have been misled, following advice based on poor/weak science. Now with epidemic rates of obesity and diabetes affecting our nation, it is time to educate ourselves and take back our health. Our Healthcare System will not be able to keep pace if we don’t change. Fortunately, the tide is finally changing and more people are becoming aware of the deep flaws with the American Dietary Guidelines. Although there are many things beyond our control, the latest research suggests that as much as 70% of our heath is related to lifestyle.
There are some great writers in the medical/health field leading the reform. Dr. Jason Fung, Dr. Robert Lustig, Dr. Timothy Noakes, Dr. Stephen Phinney, Nina Teicholz and Gary Taubes to name a few.
In this meetup, I hope to encourage members to read and discover a pathway to wellness.
