A: Measuring weight alone is not a completely accurate assessment of health or fitness because it doesn’t distinguish pounds that come from fat and pounds that come from lean muscle mass. Everyone needs some body fat, but too much fat results in obesity–one of the most important public health issues in the United States. According to new federal guidelines, more than half of the US adult population are now overweight or obese, and one out of four children and adolescents is too fat.
I have yo-yo dieted all of my life and I have been on every diet out there. This class has taught me it’s not about drastic dieting, but eating healthy. I plan to continue with the tools I have learned. I am not able to take the next class (work issue) but I would like to come to the class after that if you come back to Coppell. I am getting cholesterol checked this week and I know I will see improvements. Dana Chandler Coppell, TXTaught me it’s not about drastic dieting
Everyone in our family (2 adults/4 teens) was heavy when Cindy and I began this class 6 weeks ago. We were eating like the typical American family and the results of our poor nutritional choices threatened to overwhelm us. As Cindy and I have lost collective +40 lbs. during this journey, so too, have our 4 teens accounting for another 50 lbs. just through the changed we made in the contents of our pantry and refrigerator. Most exciting tempers have moderated, sleep has improved, energy levels are higher and we’re so excited about the coming weeks as we’re enrolling ourIt worked for our whole family
I have really enjoyed and learned so much the past 6 weeks. HLS has changed my life as well as my family in regards to food choices. We have lost our taste for sugar, bread & desserts. We drink water all day & our cabinets are stocked with vitamins & protein shakes instead of cookies & chips. I treasure the workbook & find myself reviewing it every night. I haven’t reached my goal yet but with Tammara & Jimmie’s encouragement I know I’ll get there. They have inspired me to stick with it. When I got stuck, they corrected meHLS has changed my life

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.
