EASTBOURNE SCEPTICS: FAT PLANET, THE OBESITY TRAP AND HOW WE CAN ESCAPE IT

EASTBOURNE: Bibendum Wine bar & Restaurant

THU 16TH APR, 2015 7.30pm for 8.00pm

More than a billion people worldwide are overweight and almost 500 million are obese. It is much easier to get fat than to stay fit. Dr Lewis and Dr Leitchs’ research shows that it is not lack of self-control that is to blame. Foods high in sugar, fat and salt engage the same parts of the brain as hard drugs, making fast food addiction a terrifyingly real prospect.

Instead, we need to look at the corporations whose profits depend upon the promotion of unhealthy food and to the inadequacy of current standards of nutrition education. The speakers also give practical strategies for slimming down and maintaining a healthy weight.

The Speakers:

Dr David Lewis is a best-selling author and was a consultant to Channel 4's 'Secret Eaters' diet programme.

Dr Margaret Leitch is a specialist in identifying overeating habits.
