Fad Diets


Incredible-sounding diets that promise dramatic weight loss results are everywhere. Whether it's online, in a glossy magazine or something your friend told you about you've probably come across one or maybe even tried one. But how do you know whether it will work? There are, unfortunately, lots of claims out there, playing on our anxieties and driven by societal pressures.

Fortunately, we have just the person to help cut through the noise. Nutritionist Pixie Turner will be joining us tonight at the Banshee Labyrinth to tell us what to look out for. Pixie is a scientist and a skeptic, so there'll be nothing about detoxing for a start. She'll give useful advice on how to have a balanced, healthy lifestyle while avoiding all of the damaging information out there - and there's a lot of it.

Catch Pixie tonight at 7:30pm (bar open at 7pm) at the Banshee Labyrinth Chamber Room!
