Giving Tuesday 2019

#GivingTuesday: Support

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 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!

  1. I urge people to listen to the Brian Rose interview w Dr Gregor. You can click on the link provided. Dr Gregor talks about his personal life in a way that you don’t hear too often. I had not realized that his 13 yr marriage ended recently apparently due to his single minded, all encompassing devotion to completing the research for and writing his latest book, How Not to Diet.
    Dr Gregor also frankly discusses his attempts to practice meditation and his failure to gain benefit from it. This interview reveals other sides of Dr Gregor not normally seen.
