Dr Michael Mosley Luncheon (Sydney)
Dr Michael Mosley, author of the bestselling 5:2 Fast Diet, reveals a game-changing approach to one of the greatest silent epidemics of our time- raised blood sugar levels.
Close to a quarter of adults in Australia and New Zealand now have raised blood sugar levels or are at risk of developing diabetes- and most don’t know it. Our modern diet, high in sugar and easily digestible carbohydrates, is not only making us fat, but is putting us at risk of type 2 diabetes, strokes, dementia, cancer and a lifetime of medication.
Dr Michael Mosley trained as a doctor in London. After qualifying he joined the BBC, where he has been a science journalist and more recently a well-known television presenter. He is the author of two books 5:2 Fast Diet and Fast Exercise and will be in Australia to talk about his latest book The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet.
