Dr. McDougall Was Fired from Speaking at the Obesity Medicine Conference

The Obesity Medicine Conference will be held on April 6 to 10, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco. On the morning of April 7 a discussion of various treatments of obesity by three experts with three very different viewpoints on diet was scheduled: the low-fat, high carbohydrate, starch-based diet (John McDougall, MD), the Mediterranean Diet (Michael Ozner, MD), and the low-carb Atkins Diet (Eric Westman, MD). The so-called "Mediterranean Diet" is a multibillion-dollar global brand and in the distant past was healthier than the usual Western diet, because it was once abundant in starches, vegetables, and fruits. The diet was healthy in spite of the olive oil and nuts that are now promoted as the miracle components of the diet. Currently, children and adults living around the Mediterranean Sea are among the most obese in the world. Low-carb diets are based on meat, poultry, cheese, eggs, fish, and vegetable oils, foods that are the polar opposite to my beliefs for achieving good health.

Timaree Hagenburger, MPH, RD, EP-c, The Nutrition Professor, is all about creating simple meals that taste great, save time and make you feel fantastic, because life is better when you "love the food that loves you back." Her first book, The Foodie Bar™ Way, is an approach to meals and snacks that will keep everyone happy, and the refrigerator packed with vibrant whole foods and delicious plant-based options.

Say goodbye to eating the same meals day after day or arguing about what to cook that everyone will like, only to give up, go out, and be disappointed by how much you spent and how crummy the food made you feel afterwards. No more sacrificing our health in the name of convenience or to avoid confrontation with our families over what they "should" eat and what they "want" to eat. Instead of being divided when it comes to nourishing our bodies, The Foodie Bar™ Way is about bringing friends and family together around the table to enjoy one meal, with lots of options, so that everyone's happy!
