Tara Diversi takes us From Trakkies to Bikinis
2 August 2011
Come hear Tara Diversi, from the Discipline of Nutrition and Metabolism in the School of Molecular Bioscience, talk on the topic of 'From Trakkies to Bikinis' on Tuesday 2 August as part of the Xchange series of talks run at The Ivy.
Tara Diversi, an award-winning writer and dietician, will talk about whether diets really work, whether dieting or exercise makes the most difference to body weight, what role genetics plays in body shape and whether it's possible to be fat and healthy in this free event to be held from 6.30pm to 8pm, in The Den on Level 2 of The Ivy, accompanied by complimentary Sailor's Thai canapés.
Joining Tara to discuss these issues will be Felicity Harley, Editor of Women's Health magazine.
"The MC will be asking us questions about weight loss, diets and body shape," said Tara.
"We need to change our thinking about what works and what doesn't in weight loss," said Tara.
"What we know from science in nutrition and psychology is not well translated in fad diets which seem to be so popular - with limited results."
Tara will discuss why following smart eating strategies are better than fads, pills and potions when it comes to weight loss. She will help attendees discover what they can do to improve their chances of losing weight for the long term.
Discover the science that can help you make a successful transition from wearing winter trakkies to a summer bikini at 'From Trakkies to Bikinis' on 2 August.
Xchange is a weekly forum for spirited debate, lively conversation and ladylike luxury. Each week they tackle a burning question and ask the audience to throw some fuel on the fire. Come along and interact with Australia's leading entrepreneurs, designers, writers, political commentators and academics via a series of keynote presentations, panel discussions and interactive workshops.
