Event description
CHANGE YOUR FOOD. CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Lose Weight and Reverse Chronic Disease through Nutrition.

About this event

Organizer: Adapt Your Life Academy, Dr. Eric Westman


Are you overwhelmed by the avalanche of information out there about diets and health?


Tired of spending time and money following complicated and expensive plans and protocols that don't deliver the results you want?

Or taking medications that treat the symptoms of obesity and metabolic disease instead of the root cause


We hear you!


Join leading obesity expert, international speaker, and best-selling author, Eric Westman MD MHS, together with Wickham Simonds MD, Eric Thorn, MD FACC, Jacqueline Eberstein, RN, Amy Berger, CNS, Kristie Sullivan & Casey Durango for a full-day community conference with presentations rooted in the science.

Whether you're a beginner or you're more advance; looking to lose body fat, improve your health, get off your medications, or find a way of eating that you can enjoy for the long term, we can show you the way — the simple way! No tracking of food, no measuring macros, just by eating the right foods.

Meet the speakers and mingle with your fellow 'low carb' community for a full day of fun, education, Q & A, book signing, vendors, local low-carb meet-up groups, delicious healthy lunch, raffle prizes, success stories, and more.



  • How to lose weight and heal your body through food to reverse obesity, type 2 diabetes, and chronic disease. (based on scientific research)
