Finding Balance...Nutrition for Body and Soul


Finding Balance...Nutrition for the Body & Soul.  Healthy eating should never involve restriction or deprivation. This is why diets do not work! True health means finding the right balance between giving your body the right amount of nutrients it needs and loving what we eat.
 
''Finding Balance'' is designed for anyone looking to lose weight, better their eating habits, improve their relationship with food, or who simply wants to have a better understanding of how food and nutrition affects them. This 8-week course will empower you with accurate, up-to-date nutritional advice, and will provide you with the support and motivation needed to make healthy eating and living a permanent part of your life.
