2021 Trend Summit Speaker Profile 6 - Dr Giles Yeo

Introducing Dr Giles Yeo, the latest speaker at next month's Trend Summit, who joins us to discuss how we can create 'better for you' ultra processed foods. Dr Yeo is a Cambridge University research scientist studying the genetics of obesity with nearly 20 years experience under his belt.

He is also the author of the book Why Calories Don't Count, which takes a look at why not all calories were created equal and how there are much better ways to improve your diet than counting them. The book, launched earlier this year, explains that what really matters is not how many calories a particular food contains, but how that food is digested and absorbed by your body.

The growing list of speakers at next month's event includes co-founder of Veganuary Matthew Glover, CEO of Foundation Earth, Cliona Howie, Founder of New Age Meats, Brian Spears and many more. Discover the full list here.
