ZestFest Conversations

  • Hilton Adelaide, Meeting Room A 233 Victoria Square Adelaide, SA, 5000 Australia (map)

Did you know that most popular health and nutrition advice can be anything from unhelpful to harmful for people heading into their 60s or beyond? It’s true! Those messages are for younger adults and don’t necessarily apply as you move into your later years.

Ngaire Hobbins is a dietitian passionate about getting this message out: Ngaire is an engaging, informative speaker and author of 3 books which present the science of nutrition, ageing and brain health in everyday language.

In this presentation Ngaire will bust a few myths and tell you why for example weight loss is NOT a good thing now, why physical activity must be accompanied by the right food intake, why reducing appetite is a real problem, not something to feel virtuous about; and how those treat foods can be your best friend instead of things to feel guilty about.

Come along and learn how to relish every mouthful.
