Best-Selling Author Of "Why We Get Fat…And What to Do About It" To Speak on October 28
On Sunday, October 28, at 2:00 pm, The Hotchkiss School and Noble Horizons will host best-selling author and New York Times contributor Gary Taubes.
Educated at Harvard, Stanford, and Columbia Universities, Taubes is an award-winning writer who challenges the assumptions and shatters the myths associated with the nutritional 'science' behind America's dietary guidelines. Taubes, who also wrote the best-seller, "Good Calories, Bad Calories," delivers rigorous scientific research in layperson's terms, upending the misguided and dangerous "calories-in, calories-out' paradigm. He proposes a significant overhaul of USDA dietary guidelines, and offers a scientifically based approach to regaining control over our weight and health.
Taubes will speak in the Science Lecture Hall at the Hotchkiss School, located at 11 Interlaken Road. Registration for this free program is at 860-435-9851, ext. 190 or use the online form above.
