The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences Executive Dean's Public Lecture series presents:

The Diet Debate: Eating your way to a healthy lifestyle

With many diets available we explore two of the most popular. We will firstly look into the low-carbohydrate lifestyle and then a whole-food plant based lifestyle, comparing and contrasting each diet through their demonstrated health benefits and research under pinning each perspective.

Pennie Taylor is a senior research dietitian at CSIRO Health and Biosecurity and co-author of the CSIRO Low Carb Diet Plan. Pennie has managed and supported clinical research trials exploring the influence of dietary patterns and composition on health outcomes. Pennie is a private practitioner of a multidisciplinary weight loss clinic, developing hands on experience in implementing weight loss programs.

On the opposing side is husband and wife team, Dr Alphonse and Dr Heleen Roex. We will hear from the first Australian to be certified in plant based nutrition from the 'Food for Life program'. These independent Doctors became fascinated by the abundance of studies that indicate a plant-based diet is preventative for many chronic diseases and can also play a curative role in stopping and reversing disease.

Don't miss your opportunity to participate in the debate and ask questions of leading experts in their relevant fields . Spaces are limited, registration will remain open until capacity is reached.
