MSG is our free monthly lecture series all about the history and science behind some of your favorite edibles. This month, we're taking on diets and the dieting industry.
For every supposedly innovative weight loss fad, there is a century-old counterpart. From low-carb diets to extreme mastication, calorie counting to calisthenics, Sarah will reveal the radicals and pseudo-scientists that invented America's favorite dieting trends.
Soma will pull back the curtain on the dieting industry, from the shadowy producers of diet pills to our dear frozen friends at Healthy Choice. See what happens when Budweiser battles South Beach, and how marketing muscle can be found in an IBM computer from the 60's. Featuring kickbacks, intrigue and many many cigarettes.
At Storytime, we'll figure out whether tapeworm diets, negative calories and other crazy ideas are fact or fiction?
All the details:
Tuesday, November 27, 7pm
