Lighten Up: Weighing in on the Weight Debate

Weighing in on the Weight Debate

Obesity is a worldwide health disaster; it's catching up to tobacco as the top preventable cause of death in the United States.

With almost 70% of Americans overweight and/or obese, Americans are suffering, and confused on how best to lose the weight.

With so much conflicting information out there (High Fat! Low Fat! High Protein! Zones! Blood Types!), it's no wonder people are so baffled.

Which diet is really effective, safe and healthy?

In this easy to understand and entertaining 90-minute talk, Jeff Novick reveals how Americans got so heavy, and what they can do about it -- finally.

Jeff Novick is truly a unique dietitian and nutritionist.

His insightful and humorous approach to nutrition and health has helped thousands worldwide make the transition to healthy living.

He holds both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Indiana State University in nutrition with minors in Exercise Science.

Jeff has taught nutrition classes at Indiana State University, Indiana University Medical School, the University of Miami Medical School and for the Florida Academy of Family Physicians and lectures at medical conferences around the country on a regular basis.

While in Indiana, he created and taught the Nutrition Education Initiative, a preventive medicine curriculum for medical doctors, residents, and medical students.

In recognition of this groundbreaking project, Indiana's governor awarded him the Indiana State Public Health Excellence in Health Science Award, and Indiana State awarded him the Graduate-of-the-Last-Decade Award.
