9/10 Why Losing Weight Is So Hard
Ever hear that losing weight is just calories in versus calories out? New research has found a relationship between a person’s weight and their toxic load. Is your environment keeping you from reaching or maintaining your goal weight?

9/17 Why Gaining Weight Is So Easy
Obesity rates are rising, rising, rising. But why? What has really changed so much in the last 30 years that has caused our health to decline so rapidly? Learn about how our habits and foods have changed our bodies to more easily pack on the pounds.

9/24 Food for Your Genes
Did you know the foods you eat can turn your genes off and on? Nutrigenomics is a growing field with much promise in altering the way we see our meals. We’ll show you how your genes react to your lunch!

10/1 Don’t Fear the Grocery Store
Grocery shopping and meal planning is a terrifying concept for many people trying to shift into a healthier lifestyle. What’s this ingredient? How do I read a nutrition label? Find out at this class!

10/8 Organics and Herbs
What does it really mean to be organic in the U.S.? Find out why we’re spending more on the label and how to do it more cost-effectively. Also, see how we can use our culinary spices to ward off illness.

10/15 Sleep More; Be Happy
Do you get your eight hours of sleep? Let’s see how getting not enough (or too much) sleep can harm you and how we can fix it.

10/22 Are You Stressed?
Stress makes a mess of your body. Check out the damage it can do and some tools to distress your life.

10/29 Functional Fitness
Think you don’t have time for exercise? Think again. Functional fitness focuses on movements that you use every day. Bring your workout gear to this class!
