Providence Community Library and The Friends of Rochambeau present a discussion with Dr. Michael Fine, author of “The Zero Calorie Diet” on June 10th, 7pm, at Rochambeau Library.
“The Zero Calorie Diet” is a book about fasting, about eating, not eating, eating less, and about the commercialization of food and everything else in our bloated culture. Written by a family doctor, “The Zero Calorie Diet” examines the physiology of fasting and nutrition so everyone can understand how much food the body really needs, what stimulates hunger, and how not to eat, even in a world where calories are everywhere.
Michael Fine, M.D. is a family physician, a nationally known health policy expert, and the Managing Director of Health Access RI – the first of its kind in the national network of primary care practices that provide affordable primary care to people without employer provided health insurance. For the last ten years, Dr. Fine has been the top ranked family physician in Rhode Island Monthly’s Best Doctors in RI series. He has served as Physician-in-Chief of the Departments of Family and Community Medicine at Rhode Island and Miriam Hospitals, and was on the National Health Policy Council for the Obama Campaign and Transition. Dr. Fine lives in Scituate, RI, with his family.
