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!
