Event description
Two of Australia’s leading experts will present a 1 day seminar to teach you the ‘Why’, ‘What’ and ‘How’ of a wholefood plant-based diet.

About this Event

Presented by Robyn Chuter and Emma Strutt, this seminar promises to be informative and engaging!

◾ Understand the impact of diet on conditions including diabetes, autoimmune disease, obesity and mental health.

◾ Explore how diet affects your gut microbiome and contributes to inflammation, elevated levels of cholesterol (dyslipidaemia) and insulin resistance.

◾ Find out what foods are part of a WFPB diet (and what aren’t) and the keys to finding good sources of nutrients.

◾ Be treated to some great cooking tips:

- What is a ‘Power Plate’ and how to adapt it to your needs

- Getting the energy density right

- Cooking without oil

- Meal planning

◾ Learn about transition strategies, including understanding the evolutionary mismatch and the conflict between personal health goals and social/relationship goals.

◾ Analyse ways to navigate the social issues, including introducing your family and friends to WFPB, dining out and dealing with the ‘saboteurs’.

◾ Be introduced to other pillars of lifestyle medicine and get tips for setting simple process-oriented goals.

With case studies and a Q&A session, this seminar will set you on the path to thriving on a WFPB diet.

🍎 Includes a delicious WFPB lunch, morning and afternoon tea and all materials.

Only 30 tickets available due to the venue size.
