Workshop: Expert Guidance Through Nutrition Controversies

healthy lifestyle workshop

Judging by the posts we’re bombarded with on social media, most of us have concluded that nutrition scientists disagree on pretty much everything. Either that, or they’re constantly changing their mind.

As a Nutrition Scientist who has conducted and published dozens of human nutrition trials, Dr. Gardner has a true understanding of what the scientific community agrees on. Despite all the various diets promoted on social media, there are at least four factors that all these diets have in common – and there’s substantial room for improvement even in those four areas. Beyond the top four, there are an additional half dozen factors that almost all nutrition professionals agree on.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to apply the principles of “with what” and “instead of what” when it comes to addressing most nutrition controversies – a strategy to help you rise above the latest diet trends. You’ll leave knowing the foods most scientists agree are good for a long, healthy life.

Professor Gardner will present all of this and more with his unique blend of humor and evidence-based science.
