My ‘Diabesity’ talk with Patrick Holford

I wrote a few weeks ago about Patrick Holford’s visit to Bahrain. I was very excited about him coming and inspiring the people of Bahrain to take their health seriously and look into nutrition as a way forward.

I was very happy to attend his Diabesity workshop & Kids Nutrition seminar. They were both received very well.

Although Patrick did not stay long enough in Bahrain to see much of the country, I was very pleased to know that he liked his short stay here and hoped to come back.

I hope his message continues in Bahrain and the Middle East even after he’s gone. Diabetes is a serious issue in this part of the world and the tips given here are not to be taken lightly.

For you, I have made sure I’ve interviewed him TWICE on the subject of Diabetes, in the hope that my efforts make a difference to someone somewhere.

Have a look at the YouTube video interview (above). And the extended radio interview (listen to the replay below).

Here’s my extended chat with Patrick Holford on DARE TO BE HEALTHY
