The Power Foods Revolution to Health and Weight Control by Neal Barnard, MD

May 10th: 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Location: 125 LIVE

Obesity and overweight are among today’s top health concerns. Many people are looking for easy, effective, and permanent ways to lose weight. It turns out, when properly chosen, certain foods cause weight loss, with no need for the deprivation and planning that most weight-loss regimens require. Research has shown that specific foods tame the appetite, trap calories so they cannot be absorbed, and boost the metabolism for better calorie burning after every meal.
Book signing by Dr. Neal Barnard.
