The nutrition field has always had shades of truth and shades of misinformation. Consumers are led to believe they must have the perfect greens, the perfect fruit, the perfect shake or the perfect weight-loss diet. As a result, consumers are the frequent victims of misinformation wasting both time and money looking for the perfect food or diet answer. This presentation will explore the realities of claims made for the best salad greens, current weight-loss diets, and clarify what does and what does not raise cholesterol levels. Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.
