How Diets Work And How To Make Them Work For You

With all the diet books out there, as well as the seemingly endless diet websites and articles, it can be challenging figuring out the right diet for you. Dr. Melina has found that what’s most helpful is to understand the key concepts behind popular diets so that you can find an approach that fits your lifestyle and will work for you from a nutrition standpoint. Her keynote addresses the following:
– The statistics of obesity and obesity related conditions

Let Food Be Thy Medicine for a Healthy Heart

Heart disease is the number one cause of death for both men and women in the United States, claiming approximately 1 million lives annually. It is estimated that by 2020, heart disease will be the leading cause of death throughout the world. Following the advice in Dr. Melina’s keynote might change the course of the future of heart disease:
–  The statistics of heart disease in the US and the major risk factors, including genetics
–  10 practical tips for decreasing your risk of heart disease including diet, exercise, and supplementation
–  Specific examples of the power of diet and cholesterol reduction

Secrets of Aging Gracefully

The secret to aging gracefully, contrary to magazine ads, is not found in a jar of anti-wrinkle cream. You may be able to delay or camouflage a wrinkle, but that doesn’t stop the aging process. In “Secrets of Aging Gracefully,” she addresses topics such as:
~ Genes account for only a third of the factors related to aging. Your habits – healthy or otherwise – account for the rest.
~ Dietary prevention of diseases associated with aging including age related muscle loss & fat gain, memory loss, dementia & Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, heart disease, cancer and how to fight aging skin.
~ Curcumin (curry) and resveratrol (red wine) are discussed as having particularly useful ‘anti-aging’ benefits.
