  • Foyles 107 Charing Cross Road London, England, WC2H 0EB United Kingdom (map)

Hosted by Foyles Bookshop, 107 Charing Cross Road

Join Foyles bookshop this January with their series of events that take an alternative look at the crazes sweeping self-improvement. 

For this class, hear from leading Sports nutrionist Renee McGregor, writer and journalist Emma Woolf and author and food journalist Bee Wilson, who will be looking at the impact of clean eating.

To expand upon the context of this talk, during the 2016 Cheltenham Literary Festival, Renee McGregor and Bee Wilson were booed by fans of a clean eating guru for pointing out that coconut sugar is metabolized in the exact same way as refined sugar. Since then the two have looked closely at the fanaticism surrounding this dietary trend and its restrictive dogma.

Joining them to discuss the movement is Times columnist Emma Woolf who has written extensively about her own struggles with food and the extent to which the pursuit of the ‘perfect’ body can have damaging effects.

The panel discussion will then be followed by a Q&A with the authors.

Dates: Wednesday 24th January, 7.00pm - 8.00pm

Location: Foyles, 107 Charing Cross Road, WC2H 0DT

Investment: £6.98
