Sydney Ideas: Eat like the animals

Where
University of Sydney
Parramatta and City Roads, Camperdown NSW 2006
When

Monday 23 March from 6:30pm to 8pm

Professors David Raubenheimer and Stephen Simpson, leading researchers from the Charles Perkins Centre at the University of Sydney, have tracked the patterns of how appetites are fed and regulated.

Their journey started together in nutrition science, and took them from Oxford to Sydney via the Pacific Island of Lifou to the deserts of Arizona, from slime moulds and locusts to humans. From labs to jungles, and finally to our modern processed food system.

This all culminates in a unifying theory of nutrition and a new book Eat Like the Animals. To mark the book’s launch, join us for this special Sydney Ideas event, where Raubenheimer and Simpson will share key findings, which rethink what we know about protein.

They offer practical steps for optimal health and living; including concrete advice regarding servings, types of foods, coping with junk food and assessments of other dieting fads. They will be joined by award-winning author, and former CPC Writer in Residence Charlotte Wood (The Weekend). This event is co-presented with the Charles Perkins Centre.
