A: Yes. Both extremes–too much or too little body fat–put an individual at risk for serious medical and/or psychological conditions. Having a very low body fat percentage, particularly for women, can result in musculoskeletal problems and osteoporosis. And it can upset the hormonal balance causing loss of menstruation. Striving for extremely low body fat can also result in severe eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia, and binge-eating which have significant health implications.
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

My health has improved in many ways. My allergic reaction to food has gone down and so has my acid reflex. The acid reflex affected my daily life and would keep me up all night. I have learned what’s good for me and what I don’t need. Sarah Dollar Coppell, TXI’ve learned what I do and don’t need
