A: When you chew gum the brain signals for the release of a digestive enzyme telling the body it is time to eat and it travels to the stomach to help breakdown and digest your food. When the brain realizes there aren’t any nutrients coming in the brain will shut down the metabolic process causing the body to store additional body fat. Chewing gum = fat storage.
This being my first class, I had no idea how much knowledge I would walk away with!! I like that this class was based on the “secrets” of eating healthy to live a healthy lifestyle. I had no idea that these was a so called “method to the madness” (i.e. timing of eating intervals, the balance of nutrients required per day) to put the body into a fat burning mode – without burning muscle mass. What a delicate balance to make that happen! I only felt hunger a couple of times; and the rest, I was doing good to getLearned to put my body into fat burner mode
I have struggles with my weight on and off though-out my life. I managed to lose 40 pounds in my early 20’s and 10 years later, woke up one day to discover it had all crept back somehow! I lost 10 pounds over 3 months counting PTS with Weight Watchers and then I started HLS. I lost 10 pounds during the class period and loved the personalized nutrition template because it makes it easy! It is easy to eat according to the profile. I just asked myself – did I already have my starch today? Starch is my down fall! ILoved the personalized nutrition template
I’d been working hard for about a year before the class eating clean and green so had a little “discipline” head start. I had hit a plateau for about 6 months so really wanted to take the next in learning the science. This class did exactly that! I know I’ll take it again. I am thrilled with the energy, attention to sugar reduction and protein products you have available. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

My name is Beth – I am almost 50 & I’ve been fighting my weight since my early 20s! I did weight watchers 4 years ago and lost 30 lbs. I have kept 20 lbs. off! After doing participating in this program, I have lost 12 pounds. I would like to lose an additional 20 - 25 pounds. I need to be healthy so that I can be around for my son Tanner, who has autism! Just after that small amount of weight loss, my doctor took me off my blood pressure meds. I plan to keepI’ve been fighting my weight since my early 20s!
"In November of 2012 I weighed 297 pounds--my diet was unhealthy, my energy level was low and my body was starting to show the effects of a lifetime of poor eating habits. I grew used to fat jokes, having to hold my breath to tie my shoes and feeling uncomfortable in small seats in theaters and stadiums. I expected people to avoid sitting next to me on airplanes. I resigned to the fact that I would probably not live a long life and that I would likely have health issues related to my weight for many years. Sadly and selfishlyJeff Tasker
