According to the National Institute of Health, Obesity is one of the fastest-growing health crises among Americans. Approximately 65% of Americans are either overweight or obese. Despite the available wealth of information, weight loss and healthy living still eludes the majority of our population. Despite the cultural “ideal” promoting life as a slim sized American, neither our social or practical life supports this ideal. Traditional weight loss therapy has also failed to address the multi-faceted problems associated with weight loss.
As a certified weight loss coach, I know there is more to weight and health maintenance than following a prescribed exercise program and limited diet plan. Everyone knows how to join a gym and knows how to count calories. But, diet and exercise are only a portion of the problem and only a portion of the solution. Health and weight loss is a complex issue. And too often we are focusing on the simplistic solutions and not addressing, the sometimes confrontational, contributing factors that keep us stuck in our patterns.
Pulling from the best resources on this subject, I have partnered with Dr. Jami Kulkin-Alvarez. Jami is a licensed Marriage and Family, Therapist. She also holds a Doctorate in Naturopathy and is a Certified Personal Trainer. She has been studying the psychology of weight loss for more than a decade and has lost over 65 lbs over the last 5 years herself. Join Jami and I for six weeks of group sessions covering:
- Contributing psychological factors
- Nutritional deficits that influence our food choices
- Making cognitive-behavioral change
- Understanding the link between what we eat and how it effects our bodies
- The effects of stress and toxins
- The Power of visualization and brain plasticity
