Today is #GivingTuesday, kicking off the charitable season with a celebration of giving and philanthropy. We are continuing our tradition of offering a limited-edition calendar. This year’s calendar is titled Healthy for Life: Evidence-Based Inspiration for a Healthy 2020. Most of the quotes in the calendar come from my new book, How Not to Diet. I hope that they will give you a bit of inspiration and motivation to know how much power you have over your health every time you sit down to a meal.
The first 200 people to donate $100 or more using this form to keep my 501c3 nonprofit NutritionFacts.org alive and thriving will get a calendar in time for the new year. Don’t wait—we always run out within a day or two. UPDATE: Thank you so much for your support; all calendars have been claimed!
How Not to Diet Out Next Week
Speaking of the new book, it’s landing on shelves in just one week! If you want to get it before anyone else, be sure to pre-order your copy today. To see what kind of blood, sweat, and tears went into this book, check out the book trailer that went up on NutritionFacts.org yesterday.
I also give a sneak peek of the book in my brand-new presentation that just went live: Evidence-Based Weight Loss. Watch it here. It’s also available for download, and as part of a complete collection of all of my live presentations, over on Dr.Greger.org (all proceeds go straight to NutritionFacts.org).
Back on London Real and TEDx
I was thrilled to be invited back into the London Real studio for another long-form interview with one of my favorite hosts, Brian Rose. You can watch that interview here. I was also honored to be back on a TEDx stage. Check out my new TEDx talk The Best Weight Loss Diet here.
Fasting Webinars Available in Bundle
I recently gave a series of webinars on fasting – Intermittent Fasting; Fasting for Disease Reversal; and Fasting and Cancer. They are all now available for download here. We’ve bundled them together at a discounted price, but you can still get them separately here. Some of these videos are already up on NutritionFacts.org, and the rest will be trickling out over the next couple of years.
If you plan to do some holiday shopping on Amazon this year, you can support NutritionFacts.org at the same time by going to http://bit.ly/NFsmile. Android users can also support us through the Amazon shopping app. Simply follow these instructions to turn on AmazonSmile and start generating donations. These small donations add up; in the last year we have raised over $10,000 through Amazon Smile.
- Open the app on your Android device (update to the latest version, if necessary).
- View Settings and select AmazonSmile.
- Follow the in-app instructions to complete the process.
