Aug 8 at 7 pm, Adair County Health Dept

On Thursday, August 8, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm, Dr. Brian Snyder, PhD in Human Nutrition, will discuss "Nutrition for Athletes and the Rest of Us" at the Adair County Health Dept, 1001 S. Jamison in Kirksville, MO.

This isn't your typical nutrition presentation imploring and cajoling you to eat more fruits and vegetables (although you probably ought to), lay off the soda and candy (you probably ought to do that too), and avoid red meat and salt (maybe not, actually). Dr. Snyder understands the biochemistry behind how our bodies handle carbs and fats. Learn what the latest research reveals about the endless stream of fad diets and the science (if any) behind them. Find out how these processes change if you are a runner, a body builder, or a couch potato.

Dr. Snyder is a Nutrition professor at Truman State University. He researches the effects of performance-enhancing supplements. He bicycles competitively, and has raced in the Tour of Lawrence since 2009. In 2012, he competed in 12 races.
