About the Event

In this live, in-person seminar I'll be taking you through the basics of nutrition from calories, to the macronutrients, to the hormones related to fat storage, appetite, hunger, and muscle. So much information out there is seemingly contradictory! One person says it's ALL about calories in/calories out, while another says calories don't count. Some preach low fat, while others advocate low carb. Some say you need carbs to perform while others swear you don't. WHAT GIVES??? And who is right???

In this seminar I will be breaking down the complex and overwhelming into clear and simple concepts that will help you navigate the confusing world of nutrition information. By examining both sides, we'll come to see that many seemingly opposing viewpoints are actually more similar than we think.
