FAT Chance with Dr. Robert Lustig

Dr. Robert Lustig presents his New York Times best-seller, FAT Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease. His book illuminates the causes of obesity and challenges the dogma, “a calorie is a calorie.” As our nation becomes wealthier, have we become healthier and wiser?

Dr. Lustig’s book stimulates us to re-evaluate our role as consumers of sugar and shocks us with a sharp bite on the consequences of fructose. As a sugar crusader, Dr. Lustig will talk about the mismatch between our environment and our science, business and politics that has fueled the pandemic of chronic disease over the last three decades. More importantly, he will share strategies to re-adjust key hormones that regulate hunger, reward, and stress. So, take the journey into the biochemistry of your brain and fat cells in order to help you and your family get healthy, no matter your size, in a palatable manner. “Your fat is not your fate — provided you don’t surrender!”
