The Fat Summit - Free Online Event

The Fat Summit - Separating Fat from Fiction
Free Online Summit Event Hosted by Dr. Mark Hyman
In this free, online event, Dr. Mark Hyman interviews 33 Experts to help you lose weight, increase energy and reverse chronic disease.  

In this summit, you will get the latest information for optimal health and are asked to "forget everything you've been told about fat ... 
  • All calories are NOT created equal. Science now shows that what you eat matters far more than how much you eat.
  • In 2015, the United States Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee removed any recommendations to limit fat in the diet (after concluding that it doesn’t make us fat or sick!).
  • Research indicates that sugar and carbs are the true cause of obesity and heart disease – not fats.
  • Eating more fat has been shown to improve brain function, help to prevent dementia, and reverse type 2 diabetes.
  • Dietary fat actually supports weight loss."
To view this event for free from January 25 to February 1, 2016, sign up at The Fat Summit.  Disclosure:  we are not an affiliate nor compensated in any way for this post.
