The Wellness Center hosted a dinner at Gelati Martini (2037 Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors) on Monday Night. The speaker was Nutritionist Cade Fields-Gardner and sponsored by EMD Serono. The topic was Nutrition for HIV positive people. One of the questions asked was does nutrition affect the abdominal fat buildup. The answer was that insulin spikes contribute to abdominal fat, so the way to combat this is to avoid insulin spikes. Less sugar and carbohydrates, smaller but more meals, and balanced meals. Fiber and fat counteracts the insulin spikes and therefore should be part of those balanced meals.
