Living an Optimal LifeDave Grotto, RD, LDN
Author, 101 Optimal Life Foods

Being tired, stressed, forgetful and being in pain are not just conditions reserved for the aged. Young adults and kids are complaining of these afflictions more than ever before. And according to the latest surveys, life’s “inconveniences” are of greater concern than the health challenges that threaten our very existence. Living an ‘Optimal Life” seems to be trumping the quest for quantity.

David Grotto, RD, LDN, author of 101 Foods That Could Save Your Life and now his latest book 101 Optimal Life Foods, will review an “add-in” more sustainable approach for tackling those challenges that get in the way of “living”.
Attendees will be able to:
* Identify properties of specific foods that may help improve quality of life
* Discover the benefits of an “add-in” approach  for sustaining lifestyle and diet change
* Incorporate creative ways of introducing healing foods that have “kid appeal”

How the Healthy Industry is Broken
Mark Macdonald
CEO, Venice Nutrition LLC

Choose to unlock your past nutrition & exercise beliefs and engage in a New Level of Thinking.  The broken healthy industry based on the broken concepts of Body Mass Index (BMI), Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR or BMR), Energy Expenditure, Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA), Food Pyramid, all of which are leading to calories in versus calories out; followed by the financial benefits of a broken industry with pharmaceuticals at over 300 billion dollars; the weight loss industry is a 40 billion dollar industry; a 95% failure rate (NIH: Out of 100 people, 50 drop out right away, 25 do not lose weight and some gain weight. Out of the 25 who do lose weight, only 4-5 keep the weight off two years later), there is a lack of desire to initiate true change. 

Hear from Mark Macdonald and learn how you can make the healthiest choices.  You can choose:
• To make your health a priority
• To become educated on your body and how it works
• To make your body work for you
• To do the work
• What will deliver permanent health
• Results & the quality of life you want & deserve.
