AVON — We receive a lot of confusing messages this day and age about nutrition, and the topic of fat can be one of the most confusing things to grasp when making food choices. Come to Walking Mountains Science Center on Wednesday to learn “the good, the bad and the ugly” about fat during this interactive program.

The guest presenter is Kristina Sampson, author of “Leave Cancer in the Dust: 50 Tips to Prevent Breast Cancer and Supercharge your Health” and the popular “The Vail Diet” website.

Kristina Sampson is a health coach who follows a holistic approach to health, while advocating balance and moderation. Originally a certified public accountant, Sampson began studying nutrition after being diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer in 2007. With the analytical mind of a certified public accountant, a sharp understanding of science, a voracious thirst for nutrition knowledge and the experience of applying that knowledge to her own life-or-death health issues, Sampson is passionate about helping people navigate today’s confusing food landscape.

Good fat vs bad fat

Participants in the Science Behind Fat will learn about what fat is, what the different types of fat are and why our bodies actually need fat. We will learn how to incorporate healthy fats into our diet and how to cook with oils. Participants will also prepare and eat several delicious snacks made with healthy fats.

Vail Honeywagon Enterprises, Inc. makes the Science Behind series possible. Learn more about the Scince Behind Series at http://www.walking mountains.org/sb.
