Mensch Society Lecture with Gary Taubes
In Gary Taubes' Mensch Society Lecture, he will challenge us to consider: What constitutes a healthy diet? What are the politics behind nutritional guidelines? How do we make sense of conflicting recommendations? What should we eat if we want to remain lean and healthy or become leaner and healthier if we are not? Is sugar in moderation okay? What can parents do to foster healthy eating habits in their children? Through extensive research, Taubes explores what he deems the bad nutritional science of the last century, none more damaging than the "calories-in, calories-out" model of why we gain weight, and the good science that has been ignored. Followed by a wine and cheese reception and book signing.

Gary Taubes is the author of bestsellers "Why We Get Fat" and "Good Calories, Bad Calories." He is a New York Times contributor, and co-founder of the Nutrition Science Initiative.
