Location: Caffe` Caldesi - Marylebone
Katie and Giancarlo are joined by TV’s Dr David Unwin and nutritionist Jenny Phillips to explore the many benefits of the low carb diet.
Dr Unwin who you will have seen on Channel 4’s Food Unwrapped and in the Daily Telegraph and Mail newspapers is a passionate advocate for low carb eating and has carried out many years of clinical research on the subject. He presented his latest findings to Parliament earlier this year and will share them with us on the day. Jenny Phillips is a well renowned nutritionist and together our pair of experts will discuss how adopting a low-carb diet can reverse type 2 diabetes, improve general health and lead to controllable long term weight loss.
After being diagnosed as having type 2 diabetes Giancarlo had to drastically change his diet, which is tough for a 60 year old man who had been eating pasta since he was a baby but he grasped the challenge and started developing low carb versions of the dishes he loved that tasted as good as the originals. These satisfyingly healthy dishes are ones that allowed him to turn his health around, making him fitter and lighter than he was 20 years ago.
This inspiring event will start with a short talk and demonstration and then you’ll sit down and join the Caldesi’s for a feast of dishes they have developed for the low carb way of life.
