Food Trends – The Evidence Behind Popular Foods and Diets

Is that sugar in your diet shortening your lifespan? Should you be fasting every other day for optimal weight control? How about keto? Does turmeric truly improve your immune system? How about those other superfoods?

Join us in this 3-session online course to learn tools that will help you discern truth over fiction regarding food and diet trends. Enhance your knowledge related to current popular foods, fat loss, and fad diets as we address topics such as sugar, intermittent fasting, keto diet, and super foods.

Through creative discussion, weekly tips, application of tools derived from nutritional science, and a virtual taste test from your kitchen, you will become empowered to navigate the ongoing hype around popular food trends. Take control over the misinformation and embrace your health through effective dietary practices.

Instructor: Gretchen George, PhD, RD, is an assistant professor in nutrition at San Francisco State University. Prior to her faculty position, she worked at Stanford Prevention Research Center as a research dietitian on multiple weight loss studies.
