Energy Balance and Weight Control Workshops

Dietary Fads – Super Science Fiction!
Current popular weight loss diets promote eating practices that encourage high protein intakes and extremely low carbohydrate intakes, and claim “carbohydrates make you fat”. These diets insist that carbohydrates trigger the release of insulin, which in turn stores fat and causes weight gain. To the average consumer, these explanations sound like exciting scientific discoveries. To those trained in nutrition, it’s more like “science fiction”! This popular workshop breaks down the popular fad diets, shows you why they work, who they are targeted too and why they are not the healthiest way to lose weight.

A Toast to Energy Balance
Have you ever wondered how you could have managed to put on weight over the years despite dieting the entire time? This workshop shows you how dieting can actually make you gain weight and how where you wear your fat is more important than how much you actually weigh. You will learn about the 5 types of energy balance and how to adjust your energy balance to achieve a healthy weight.

The Feastive Season
You can’t fool the 1st Law of Thermodynamics! It all comes down to a balance of energy – if you eat more calories than you expend, the extra will go into storage in all those vulnerable places. Here is the key – enjoy good food during the holiday season – but instead of trying to undo the damage at the end of the season – plan ahead. Think tactics, think race strategy. Think fast moves for unexpected situations. This workshop is full of racy tactics to get you through the holiday feastive season feeling fit and firm!

Getting On Track
The two biggest sellers in any bookstore are the cookbooks and the diet books. The cookbooks tell you how to prepare the food, and the diet books tell you how not to eat it. There is nothing magical about maintaining or attaining a healthy weight. Learn how to analyze your lifestyle and determine the changes you need to make with your energy balance (nutrition and physical activity) to maintain a healthy weight.
