Venue: Moncrieff Entertainment Centre

The Eat, Breathe, Move program brings Ruben Meerman to Bundaberg to deliver a series of engaging public lectures and professional development workshops around the “carbon in, carbon out” concept.
Ruben Meerman is a well-known Australian scientist, educator, public speaker and author. During his career and own health journey he realised there is a critical gap in health literacy around the metabolic process of weight loss and understanding that the food we eat (and weight we lose) becomes the carbon dioxide we exhale.
His book “Big Fat Myths – When you lose weight where does the fat go?” and published article in the British Medical Journal, explore the concept of “carbon in, carbon out” and the connection between metabolism, breathing and movement. His workshops and lectures bring these processes to the broader community using simple messaging - building our ability and knowledge to act on our health.
