THIS WEEK: Diets make you fat! (FREE Open House Event)

This is the time of year when many of us resolve to get our health/weight act together - but it can be a challenge to do this well and healthfully. Give me your ear for a short time and I’ll share the approach I’ve found to be best for finding your right weight for the long term - using real food, sound nutrition, pleasurable movement, and some lifestyle principles which do NOT involve spandex, food scales, or suffering. (Plus I’ll feed you yummy snacks.) RSVP is nice but not necessary - just drop in and bring a friend!

** Eat Well for a Change: Nutrition for Peri-Menopause and Menopause
Thursday January 21, 2010  6:00 to 7:30 pm

Around midlife and menopause, many women feel like they’re suddenly navigating by the stars when they were used to having a GPS gadget on the dashboard. None of the old rules seem to apply. Mass media and the conventional medical wisdom would have women believe that there’s not much that works besides drugs, hormones, and surgery. But here’s a secret: there are two major hormone systems in every woman’s body which, when treated well, are designed to provide a strong foundation of estrogen balance during this time of change. It’s totally possible to address some common peri-menopausal symptoms with some very simple measures. Sick of weight gain, sleep disruption, hot flashes, moodiness, and/or fatigue? Grab a girlfriend — and let’s talk!

** Eat to Beat Inflammation — And Set Your Heart Free!
Thursday February 11, 2010 6:00 to 7:30 pm

Inflammation, “the body on fire,” lives at the root of most of the chronic diseases of aging - things like heart disease, diabetes, dementia, and arthritis. (Plus it can make you feel pretty lousy!) Anti-inflammatory medications are one option - but many people have found that an anti-inflammatory diet is delicious, powerful, and safer. (It can even involve chocolate!) Is your food plan going up in flames? Come learn some simple, practical steps you can take to cool it down!

Space for these classes is limited and pre-registration is required. Stop by or call the Whole Foods customer service desk to reserve your spot today. The store is located at 2 Somerset Street, just off I-295. 207-774-7711.


I have been tickled pink to find myself inundated with phone calls and emails since this editorial piece appeared in the New Year’s Day issue of the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram. What a treat!

Here’s a link in case you missed it (like I almost did) - I’ve been really happy to hear that there are so many people out there who feel like I do about the whole dieting thing.
