The Science Behind Optimal Metabolic Health and Nutrition: Adding Years to Your Life and Life to Your Years

Join us LIVE every Tuesday evening between February 20 – March 27, 2018 from 7:00pm – 8:30pm

The Directors of UCSF Center for Obesity Assessment, Study and Treatment (COAST) bring world experts in weight, food, metabolism and longevity to share the latest science-based practical information to the public.  We will explore the drivers of weight, inflammation, and aging and how to promote a vibrant healthstyle and healthspan.  This series of lectures will cover the roles of sleep, dieting, optimal nutrition, the sugary environment, and how to manage cravings for comfort foods. These lectures will separate out solid facts you can rely on from fads you should avoid, and you will learn about emerging science that you can use to experiment with changes to your daily life.
