Don’t Fear the Fat

Presented by Kristen Marvin, ND & Safia Lyon, APRN

This presentation talks about the latest scientific research that points to carbohydrates, not fats, as the major risk factor for heart disease and obesity. One of our goals is the help patients learn how lifestyle changes can treat type 2 diabetes and potentially cure it. This presentation also talks about other surprising truth about exercise and weight loss.
