Health Icons Lecture Series: Dr Mark Hyman

Apr. 02 to 03, 2016 London, UK Up to 10 CPD Hours

For decades, the leading advice from most nutritionists, doctors, the government and the media was to eat less and exercise more, but this advice has clearly led us down the wrong path. We're fatter and sicker than ever while exercising more and eating low fat, low calorie processed foods. Dr Mark Hyman will bust big food myths that have created one of the biggest health epidemics by proving once and for all that quality always trumps quantity when it comes to the food that we eat.

Dr Hyman's Latest Book

For decades we've been told that the fat we eat turns to fat in the body, contributing to weight gain, heart disease, diabetes, and generally poor health. And yet, even with all our low-fat products, we're fatter and sicker than ever before. What's going on? Could it be that the most feared food group is actually...the most helpful?

As 'Pegan Plan' creator and author Dr Mark Hyman explains in Eat Fat Get Thin, a growing body of research is revealing the immense health and weight-loss benefits of a high-fat diet rich in eggs, nuts, oils, avocados, coconut oil, and other delicious superfoods. That's right — as it turns out, the key to losing weight, increasing overall energy, and achieving optimum wellness is eating more fat, not less. Dr Hyman debunks some of our most persistent fat-phobic myths and clearly explains the science behind fat's health benefits. In addition to learning why fat is good and which fats are best, you'll learn how to apply that knowledge to your day-to-day life. With easy-to-follow advice, simple and flavourful recipes, shopping lists, and more, Eat Fat Get Thin will help you lose weight and stay healthy for life.
