I’m so excited to be bringing you my new live presentation!
I used to do annual reviews of the medical literature, but that was before the success of How Not to Die ( ). Realizing just how many people (and in 33 languages!) I’m now able to reach with my books, I set out to write a new book every three years. The downside is that now I’m just barely able to keep up making new videos for NutritionFacts.org and so I just have time to create one new presentation per book. This one, I am proud to announce, is based on my upcoming book How Not to Diet ( ), which comes out next month.
If you find this presentation helpful, please share it with others by sharing the link to this page.
And if you want to be among the first to grab my new book, please consider pre-ordering How Not to Diet to help me bump it high on the bestseller list the week it launches in hopes of exposing more people to evidence-based weight loss.
