Event description

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, Dr. Shawn Baker, Brian Sanders, Rachel Gregory, Jen Fisch as they share the most up-to-date information with you.

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. What you eat matters, and is, (more often than not), more powerful than most medications, (which simply treat the symptom and not the cause).

Listen to 3 amazing 'success stories' who will each share their life-changing results with you. Learn how they were able to finally take control of their weight and their health, how their obsessive food/sugar cravings became virtually non-existent, 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!

Having witnessed the early deaths of her father, two brothers & a sister, Jenny & her sister set off on an experiment to help their mother & themselves.
