Virtual Badger Talk from Evansville, WI: "Fad Diets"

Speaker: Kavita Poddar

Event Details

Tuesday, August 4, 2020
6-7 p.m.
Obesity is a growing epidemic in the US today. Many individuals suffering from weight issues are lured into trying fad diets marketed by the weight loss industry. Today individuals without weight issues also try these diets. However, many of these diets are often untested and may cause more harm than good. This talk will focus on current trends in fad diets versus healthy eating approaches.
This talk will be streamed via Eager Free Public Library's Facebook Live.
