STUDENT UNION BUILDING - (BEACH AUDITORIUM) - CAL STATE UNIVERSITY - TRANSFORM YOUR HEALTH THROUGH NUTRITION!

About this Event

On the road to health and weight loss success, every one of us hits a block. There are two options:

To give up and settle for less OR.. ADAPT and change.

It's time to UNlearn and REthink everything that you 'think' you know! Join us on March 7th, 2020 in Long Beach, CA, for a fun-filled day of education based on the scientific therapeutic benefits of a low-carb lifestyle. Discover the latest updates, techniques and troubleshooting strategies from leading experts, Dr. Eric Westman, Dr. Amy Savagian, Dr. Carl Knopke, Dr. Gary Shlifer, Rachel Gregory, Jen Fisch & Brian Sanders as they share the most up-to-date information.

Learn how to rid your body of inflammation the right way, so you can heal your body to achieve astounding results. Learn how and why many chronic diseases are preventable, and in many cases, reversible, through eating the right Nutrition. Learn that what you eat matters, and is, (more often than not), more powerful than most medications, (which simply treat the symptom and not the cause).

Hear amazing success stories from people that have had life-changing results of their own. How they were finally able to take control of their weight and their health, how their obsessive food/sugar cravings became virtually nonexistent and how they were able to reverse their chronic disease by adopting a low-carb lifestyle.

Meet and mingle with like-minded people in your community, chat to local physicians, make new friends, and get the support you need to succeed.

Together, let's ADAPT!

TOPICS OF DISCUSSION:

  • Nutrition as Therapy. How do Carbohydrates, sugars, refined and processed foods lead to insulin resistance, inflammation and chronic metabolic disease?

  • How to control your sugar cravings for life! Is that possible? How eating a diet of low-carb nutrition is easy to sustain forever. (Almost everything is 'ketofiable')
  • Intermittent Fasting - Should I incorporate this into my lifestyle and if so, how often?
