Eat as if Your Life Depended on It (It Does!)

04/23/14
The statistics on diabetes in the U.S. are sobering: one in eight people have the disease. The challenge is that most folks don’t manage the disease well enough. The key to staying vital, happy and healthy is eating foods that boost health. Nevertheless, part of the problem in changing our diet is that we often receive conflicting messages. 

 
Join internal medicine physician John J. Whyte as he dispels myths about food, discusses food planning, and how to incorporate super foods in your diet. John J. Whyte, MD, MPH, is the Director of Professional Affairs and Stakeholder Engagement at the Center for Drugs Evaluation and Research at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and is the author of the AARP bestselling book New American Diet: Lose Weight, Live Longer. Dr. Whyte believes that food is as powerful as a prescription drug - it affects every system in our bodies.  Become an informed consumer and make the right food choices once and for all.  
 
Free copies of Dr. Whyte’s most recent book, the New American Diet: Lose Weight, Live Longer, will be given out at the seminar (limit one per household as supplies permit).
