Why Diets Don’t Work and other myths about food and health
with Pixie Turner

Despite a wealth of information at our fingertips there are still so many things we get wrong about our health, and with a new diet book out every other day it’s no wonder people are confused. What should we be eating? When? How often? Just how important is food when it comes to our overall health?

Humans have always been a bit weird around food. We’re told eating certain foods are the key to living longer, some foods are ‘sinful’ or ‘bad’, that ‘you are what you eat’, and that we must seek to obtain health at all costs. All this means we follow crazy diets that make things worse rather than better, and have a population where most of us dislike our bodies.

Pixie will unpack why diet and nutrition misinformation is so problematic, on social media, in mass media, and on a public health level, and why we could all benefit from taking a moment to assess our personal relationship with food. Expect some mythbusting, diet rants, and lots of fully-referenced evidence-based science.

Pixie is a nutritionist (ANutr), food blogger, and science communicator. She graduated with a First Class degree in Biochemistry, and went on to complete a Masters in Nutrition with Distinction. She is the brains behind the ‘Pixie Nutrition’ social media accounts, which aim to infiltrate the wellness movement and debunk nutrition misinformation online. In addition, she has been featured as a nutrition expert on BBC and Channel 5, and in publications such as Red magazine, Evening Standard, Grazia, the Telegraph and more. Her first book, ‘The Wellness Rebel’ was published early 2018, with her second book, ‘The No Need to Diet Book’ released March 2019.

Following three sell-out Fringe runs with hit show ‘Crime and Funishment’ and more than a decade of acclaimed and raucously funny performances, Brighton’s improvised comedy revolutionaries return with a brand new show for 2019!

Join them as they delve into the secret lives of celebrities, creating a unique biopic documentary each night on stage, all based on your suggestions. What did David Bowie do before Ziggy? Was Marilyn Monroe really an alien? What’s Her Majesty’s hidden hobby? They’ll reveal all, with a heap of laughter and anarchy thrown in for good measure!

SIMON & LAURA’S ONE NIGHT STAND
Apr 28 @ 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Simon Caine: Every Room Becomes a Panic Room When You Overthink Enough

Simon Caine is interested in the stories we tell ourselves vs the stories other people hear. Why do we always cast ourselves in the best part in all our stories when we share them online? And what’s the truth behind them? A new show looking at our relationship with happiness and social media in an age where attention seems to be wanted over personal growth. Where experiences are only as valuable as the number of likes they get and where anxiety seems to be everywhere and I’m sure there’s no link between these things.

Illicit Chats with Laura Thomas

Hosted by Sex Standing Up’s very own Ginnia Cheng, where she will be chatting to Laura Thomas (co-host of the Illicit Chats Podcast) about all the things illicit, sordid, and uncomfortable. And after they’ve talked all things sex, Laura will move onto the tough subjects that effect women’s day to day life but aren’t talked about day to day. There will be laughs, tears (from laughing so much) and pain (from laughing so hard)

Doors 7:00pm / Show 7:30pm / Tickets £5 (or pay what you want)

Twonkey’s 10th show is about a grotesque cake decorating shop in the Dordogne that has been secretly making fake weather since 1982. Last week I knocked on the door licking my lips in anticipation. The shopkeeper opened the door, a tiny woman who was all baggy eyes with a hard miserable face and fast little legs. I had made a horrible mistake, I could not turn back!
