Hi members of the ADA
Grant Schofield here. I’m a Professor at AUT where I’ve studied what helps us be healthy for the last couple decades.
I’m really interested in how eating, sleeping and moving affects us. I’m really interested in turning over the conventional wisdom in these fields, and seeing how we can make progress to having not just a longer, but a better life.
I’ve written several books on this. The most popular are the 'What the Fat?' series which has been in the best-seller list for a few years now. Here we looked at how low carb and ketogenic diets can help us be healthier and why conventional food pyramid thinking has been such a disaster. This includes oral health where I have an interest.
More recently I’ve started a social enterprise called Prekure (Prevention is cure) where we want to help the health professions get more literate with the latest research evidence and practice evidence around eating, sleeping and moving.
I'm speaking at an evening with the ADA and I’d love you to come. We'll have a fun, engaging, and intellectually stimulating time talking about “How to be the best you can be”. You might even be like the old fellow who said to me after a recent talk “I was expecting that to be crap, but you were awesome, thanks…”. Or you might expect to enjoy it and do so!
See you there.
