Do you eat for fuel, or do you eat for comfort? This seminar addresses the WHY behind our eating patterns, and provides alternatives for emotional eating. At the root of our diet is a reason, a feeling, a memory, an impulse. If we can discover and understand what those feelings, memories, and impulses are, we can develop an action plan for overcoming them.
Sugar, Sugar, Everywhere!:
Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 6:00 PM
“Americans consume, on average, 765 grams of sugar every five days. To put that in perspective, in 1822 we consumed on average 45 grams every five days. That is equal to one can of soda. Now we consume 17 times that, or the equivalent of 17 cans of soda (AlterNet).” Shocked? Us too! Sugar is everywhere, in everything. It is the most readily available ingredient in food products today, it is also one of the leading causes of obesity and related health issues in our country. This course focuses on this product, the hidden sources of it, how to reduce your sugar intake, and the impact it can/will have on your body.
