Homeostasis describes how the human body regulates fluid, nutrients, and temperature balance. The current diet culture repeatedly tells us that we must do all the work to keep our body in balance through “clean eating,” fasting, and cleansing. These messages lead to confusion and sometimes anxiety over not doing the right thing.

Join this 4-week class to learn and practice sound nutrition principles. Not only will you learn the basics of nutrition from a metabolic perspective, you will participate in a healthy diet ‘boot camp’ where each week, as a group, we will review eating patterns and practice what we learn. There will be opportunities to share the emotional and physical changes we experience. Learn how the digestive system and metabolic system (related to hunger and satiation) work, and increase your confidence to choose foods that best meet your personal health needs.

NOTE: This class qualifies for the 2019 BeWell Engagement incentive
