The Government’s ‘Eatwell Guide’: A Contributing Factor To Underperformance At Work?
Have you ever wondered why by 11 am (or sooner) you feel hungry? Does this affect your work performance? Can you not last until lunchtime without food? Do you suffer from waves of tiredness and wonder why? Now that home working has become the new normal, we probably ask ourselves these questions even more - and the temptations in the fridge are even closer than before!
The answers to these questions are so simple when you know the reason why. Estrelita’s presentation will give you the answers.
The ‘Eatwell Guide’, which is the official government, diabetes charities and NHS guidelines on what people should eat, is dangerously inaccurate and can lead to a massive surge of lifestyle diseases including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, dementia and cancer. Not sounding too good, is it?
Dr Estrelita van Rensburg, a leading expert in biomedical research and co-author of ‘Eat Well or Die Slowly’, will take you through her presentation on optimal health and performance at work thus enabling you to make your own enlightened decisions on your personal health and lead a fully energised life. It will be a ‘light bulb’ moment for you!
Trained as a medical doctor in South Africa, Dr Estrelita specialised in virology and followed a research career as Professor and Head of Department at Stellenbosch University and the University of Pretoria for 16 years before joining the pharmaceutical industry in a global position. During this latter phase of her career, she became increasingly aware that the medical profession focused primarily on treating disease symptoms through prescribing medication, rather than finding preventative solutions. Subsequently she researched the area of preventative medicine and, in so doing, she discovered how misconceptions and misinformation regarding human nutrition are important factors in the increase of modern-day lifestyle diseases.
