7:11 p.m., Oct. 5, 2010----Nina Planck, author of Real Food: What to Eat and Why, will discuss “How I Ended My Struggles with Eating by Embracing Real Food: The Psychological and Nutritional Secrets” at 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 14, in 120 Smith Hall.
Sponsored by the National Eating Disorders Awareness Committee, a registered student organization at UD, the talk is free to UD students and staff. Admission for the general public is $3.
In Real Food, Planck argues that traditional foods such as butter are best, while industrial foods, such as corn oil are linked to such nutrition-related disease as obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
She is also the author of Real Food for Mother and Baby, which discusses the best foods to eat from conception through a baby's second birthday.
Her books will be on sale at the event, which will include a book signing after the talk.
