Presenter: Joan BorysenkoCut through dietary hype and confusion at last! There is no one size fits all Joan Borysenko 166x200diet. When Joan and her husband adopted an ultra lowfat, high carb plant-based diet, they were surprised that their health deteriorated instead of improving. What was the problem? Joan put on her cell biologist?s hat (she has a doctorate from Harvard Medical School) and did some serious science sleuthing, separating the proverbial wheat from the chaff. A plant-based diet (including Plus foods that can range from meat to dairy, and from grains to beans) is key to good health- but it has to be ?carb reasonable? and suitable for individual protein needs and sensitivities. Joan will tell you what simple medical tests (and self tests) can help you eat right for your metabolism and lose weight, gain energy, and optimize your health. Nutrition for the 21st century takes genetics, epigenetics, and our symbiotic community of 100 trillion gut microbes into consideration. And personalizing your diet is super fun and tasty. Let?s beat the epidemic of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, inflammation, autoimmunity, Alzheimer?s and depression that makes kids born today the first generation expected to live shorter lives than their parents. We can do it!
