    7—9 PM

    Samsung Hall

    Dan Zigmond, author of “Buddha’s Diet: The Ancient Art of Losing Weight Without Losing Your Mind,” discusses both his experience of becoming a Zen priest and the benefits of Buddha’s diet. Zigmond says, “Buddha himself adopted intermittent fasting, long before it was popular. In fact, you could say that Buddha was a very early biohacker, seeking to find enlightenment, clarity and health through time restricted eating.” Annie Somerville of Greens joins the conversation and will prepare a bite of a suggested dish to sample. Purchase a copy of “Buddha’s Diet” from the museum store to get signed after the program.
