Michael Greger, M.D. FACLM will bring his medical expertise and largest research findings to share and answer the question: What does science show is the best way to lose weight?

Dr. Greger has scoured the world’s scholarly literature and developed this new presentation based on the latest in cutting-edge research and his new book: How Not to Diet.

He will touch on the 17 ingredients of the optimal weight loss diet, and cover some of the 21 ‘tricks and tweaks’ for fast-tracking weight loss. These include specific foods that can double as fat blockers and fat burners, starch blockers and appetite suppressants.

Dr. Michael Greger is also well-known as an internationally-renowned nutrition expert and founder of Nutritionfacts.org. Prior to How Not to Diet (2019), he authored the mega-bestselling How Not to Die book (2015) and the popular How Not to Die cookbook (2017).

Isn’t that mindblowing about the circadian rhythm stuff? Calories in the morning count less and are healthier than calories in the evening. So if you’re going to skip a meal to widen your daily fasting window, skip dinner instead of breakfast. I’ll get to the best-of-both worlds study next in The Benefits of Early Time-Restricted Eating (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-b…).

The Marshall Plan documentary full version

When Texas Mayor Ed Smith III was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he elected to forego conventional treatment in favor of a whole food, plant-based diet. The results were nothing short of miraculous: his cancer disappeared. He and his wife embarked on a mission to help their town and community adopt a healthier lifestyle based on plant foods. Their story is being told in THE MARSHALL PLAN. The documentary focuses on the transformation of one town into a healthier place when its residents adopted new eating strategies. The stories of Marshall’s residents are combined with interviews from expert doctors and researchers in the field of nutrition, and professional athletes.

No-Bake Cranberry Pear Tart | Forks Over Knives

I created this tasty dessert one holiday when there was no room in the oven to bake one more thing. The filling cooks quickly, is tart and just sweet enough. And the crust comes together before you can say “Happy Holidays.” If you prefer, you can use a tart apple in place of the pears.

Find this recipe and more in the Forks Over Knives Recipe App.

  • Crust
  • 2½ cups walnuts or pecans, toasted for 8 minutes in a 350º oven
  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon sea salt to taste
  • Filling
  • 3 ripe pears, thinly sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup apple cider
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries

Instructions

  1. For the Crust: Combine the walnuts, dates, cinnamon and salt in the bowl of a food processor and process until the mixture is well combined but not completely smooth. Press it into the bottom and up the sides of a nine-inch non-stick tart pan and refrigerate while you make the filling.
  2. For the Filling: Place the pears, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup, apple cider, and dried cranberries in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until the pears are tender, about 10 minutes. Remove the pears and cranberries with a slotted spoon to a bowl and set aside. Return the pan to the heat and cook the remaining liquid in the pan until it is reduced by half.
  3. Spread the fruit over the tart crust and pour the reduced liquid over it.
  4. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
