Who is serious about getting healthy in '09? I will be teaching a series of 12 classes (weekly) starting in January, via teleconference. I am offering it for half-price as I need a guinea pig group....I am adding a new componant to the already wildly successful series: A weekly segment for the cooking-and-food-prep-challenged, and tips on healthy eating while saving at the grocery store. I will need feedback on this for future classes, hence the 50% off! The savings seen by implementing these tips and techniques will cover the cost of the classes, I am confident of this. Covered in these classes will be the science of why dieting doesn't work, the glycemic index, deceptive labelling, how to raise your metabolism, how to cheat....we all will, so how to indulge on occasion without backsliding, good fats (yes, butter!) and bad fats, the facts about carbs (yes, a necessary nutrient....no food groups will be obliterated!), and much, much more. EVERYONE who has completed the series has lost weight, even the barely compliant ones who drove the teacher insane... This is based on the ONLY clinically-proven weight management system in this country, fairly new, and the published study showed it outstripped the biggies....Weight Watchers, Zone, Atkins, and Ornish....by a dramatic amount. My dh was in the pilot study and my friend the doctor was one of the investigators, so yes, I know my stuff and am quite enthusiastic about it. Any questions?
