    Zonya Foco, Zonya Foco to return as keynote speaker for Heart Truth for Women Luncheon

    Author, TV host and national speaker Zonya Foco — a champion in the fight against obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease by advocating smart nutrition and fitness — is returning as the keynote speaker for WellStar West Georgia Medical Center’s 10th annual Heart Truth for Women Luncheon on Thursday, Feb. 23.

    Foco will present, “Be Good to Your Sweet Heart...Deliciously!” at the luncheon, which will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Callaway Conference Center at West Georgia Technical College. Part of her keynote address will include a cooking demonstration performed with her hallmark high energy as she provides low maintenance solutions to make eating healthy doable and fun.

    From anti-inflammatory foods to those high in antioxidants, there is much more to heart health than low-fat and low-cholesterol food, says Foco, who will give the audience the inside scoop on the top 10 “good-for-your-heart” foods, including how to make each one “addictingly delicious,” she said. Her audience will learn the latest on coconut oil, red wine, and even a daily dose of chocolate.

     “Your heart beats for you constantly, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, year by year,” Foco said. “I enjoy talking to people to inspire them to eat the best they can for their heart and cardiovascular system.”

    Foco is known for relating to her audience with nutrition games, hands-on demonstrations and a sense of humor. Her presentations are so unforgettable that she tends to get invited back again and again to the same venues. She was the WGMC’s Heart Truth speaker in 2012, when she focused on “The Power Of One Good Habit.”

    Coliseum Health System in Macon, for instance, has featured Foco three times.

    “It’s our third time having you present in Macon, and we are so pleased,” Coliseum’s vice president of marketing wrote on Foco’s website. “The women absolutely loved you. Personally, I did four things differently that very night at dinner — a testament that your presentation hit home.”

    Foco is the only registered dietitian and certified health and fitness instructor who has earned the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation from the National Speakers Association. She also is the author of the best-selling cookbook, “Lickety-Split Meals for Health Conscious People on the Go” and “Lickety-Split Diabetic Meals,” as well as host of the half-hour public television show, “Zonya’s Health Bites.”

    Additionally, she is the creator of the “no diets, no counting, no kidding” Diet Free lifestyle program used by individuals and worksite wellness programs across the country. Foco has been a guest presenter for “Oprah and Bob’s Best Life Challenge” and is a co-partner of, which features recipes, tutorials and coaching focused on real food ingredients.
