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.
Thanks for the life changing knowledge!! BK Sloan Dallas, TXLife changing knowledge!!
This is the first eating program I’ve ever participated in and I’m so pleased with my results. I’m continuing with the next class. I lost 5.4 pounds – 3.6 fat and I feel so much, better about myself. Started at 125.01 and now 119.6. During my 12 weeks in HLS, my triglycerides went from 201 to 63. My “good” cholesterol went up 16 points and my “bad” cholesterol went down 7 points. Thanks!

"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
I have gained so much information about eating properly. I am still in the process of learning what is more adequate for me because there are some foods that trigger my inflammation due to RA but hopefully I will take again and get more knowledge and way food interacts with RA. Thanks for the class it is good to know there is place to go to learn about proper nutrition. Zoila Basler Southlake, TXI’ve gain so much information
"In February 2011, HLS came to Kirkpatrick Middle School and invited us to try out their program. A friend of mine was interested in trying it out and asked if I would join her. I have always had trouble with my weight, and I had tried numerous diets to try to get the weight off, all to no avail. I figured, “Why not try yet another diet? It couldn't hurt. And if nothing else, maybe I’ll lose 10-15 pounds.” Nine months and 115 pounds later, I realized that this isn’t a diet. This is a lifestyle. I have changed howSally Kelley
