Good Health Club
The first in a series of three workshops on how to change your lifestyle and adopt healthy eating habits will be held from 6:30-8 p.m., Monday July 21. The location is yet to be determined
The program is based on the Magic-Hand Eating Plan developed in 1980 by epidemiologist Anne Seifert (Ph.D. Berkeley), to teach people how to shed pounds in a healthy way.
More importantly you will be given a blueprint you can personalize for life long healthy living.
The three sessions are:
• Easily gauging portions
• Adding exercise
• Making time for meditation.
All these factors play key roles in successful weight loss and maintenance.
Attendees will learn how to eat at restaurants, at parties, and how to cope with emotional eating.
The second workshop will be held July 28 and the third, Aug. 4, also from 6:30-8 p.m.
Registrants will be sent an email confirming their registration and the CH meeting location. Advance registration is required.
To register send an email before Monday, July 21, to firstname.lastname@example.org. That is all that is needed.
Materials for the workshop will be sent at no cost.
Carol Chambers presented the numbers on her blood chemistry results at the July 11 meeting of the Wa-Rite Club. The expected range are slowly changing downward in today’s medicine.
Carol’s cholesterol is nearing the top of todays range which is 125-200 mg/dl. Carol’s cholesterol is 191.
Dr. David Purlmutter’s recent book “Brain Drain” claims that most people don’t get enough cholesterol for a healthy brain. A healthy body makes its own cholesterol but needs more from our diet.
Dr. Purlmutter believes steroids and eliminating foods with cholesterol leave the body too low to be healthy.
He believes some cases of depression can be linked to low cholesterol when taking steroids. He believes high cholesterol levels can be healthy and not implicated in heart attacks. He says that high cholesterol levels are associated with longevity.
Maura Coates is a long time member who just achieved her goal to earn bachelor of goal weight honors.
Top loser last week was Jana Rogers, 2-1/2 pounds. Rosie Andrews lost four pounds in two weeks.
A discussion was held about members who are not announcing weight gains at meetings. Some believe that announcing gains is an important tradition of accountability to the group and “to thine own shelf be true.”
Members are asked to clearly announce any weight gain numbers.
The club meets at 9 a.m., Fridays, in Clubhouse 3, Room 1.
New members are welcome and should arrive by 8:30.
Fore more information, call Judy Chambers, 430-9966.
