As a nation of consumers
Lansdowne, VA (Vocus) January 22, 2009 -
Dr. Will Clower, best known for his study of the French diet documented in his highly praised cultural comparison, The Fat Fallacy, will lead a couples' weekend Mediterranean immersion at Lansdowne Resort, February 27-March 1, 2009.
What better Valentine gift than a shared experience decadently rich with the promise of good health and longevity?
The "Path to Mediterranean Wellness" showcases the ease and luxury of the Mediterranean culture of wellness, embracing a holistic approach to the life well lived: stress reduction, sumptuous foods, learning sessions and daily recreational activities. Guests will interact with Dr. Clower for the entire weekend and have access to follow-up via his web site.
A renowned neuroscientist, Dr. Clower's passion and energy infuse the wellness topic with knowledge acquired during his two-year research stint in France where he studied the cultural habits of the thin, healthy French people. Dr. Clower has applied his knowledge to explain how people living the Mediterranean lifestyle - low weight, healthy hearts and longer lives - can enjoy rich, healthy foods and still be thinner than Americans.
"As a nation of consumers," he says, "Americans believe that volume is value, and quantity is quality - this philosophy may be great for cleaning products, perhaps, but it becomes bad for our health. Other cultures don't have this problem."
Dr. Clower's breakthrough work has been featured on The View with Barbara Walters, CBS's Up To The Minute and ABC News, plus USA Today, New York Times, Readers' Digest, and Cosmopolitan Magazine.
This inspiring Lansdowne Resort event is ideal for couples or for girlfriend getaways and can create a focal point for optimal health. After all, indulgence can be habit forming!
