CLEAN AND LEAN
5-Week class on Wednesdays
June 6, 13, 20, 27, and Tuesday, July 3
Learn the lifestyle changes you can make to allow your body to drop excess weight naturally, and to maintain optimal health long-term. We will explore the complexity of weight gain, so you can walk away with a better understanding of the underlying factors that contribute to weight loss resistance.
Each week in this 5-week series will focus on a different topic:
Week 1: The complexity of weight gain, reasons for weight loss resistance, and how to use diet to induce the metabolic changes necessary for weight loss. We will discuss nutrition for weight loss, and which diet plan will fit your unique needs.
Week 2: The role of toxins in weight gain and weight loss resistance. Supporting the body’s detoxification pathways.
Week 3: The microbiome and its influence on weight and overall health. How to nourish a healthy gut.
Week 4: Stress, sleep, and hormones. How these three factors interact to influence weight gain, and strategies to encourage your hormones to work in your favor.
Week 5: Learn which exercises are best for your needs, strategies for managing cravings, and maintaining weight loss long term.
You will work one-on-one with a certified nutritionist who will design an individualized diet that will allow your body to achieve an optimal metabolic state, allowing weight loss to occur naturally. A diet that works for one person may not be right for another, so identifying the optimal dietary plan to fit your unique needs is essential.
Participants can expect to enjoy increased energy, improved digestion, and clearer thinking, in addition to weight loss. Class includes diet plan, shopping guide, and recipes.
