How to Reach a Healthy Weight

HSD’s Health & Wellness team would like to invite you to participate in an upcoming wellness session, How to Reach a Healthy Weight. Led by licensed nutritionist Lynnette Simpson, CNS, LN, we will discuss a three-pronged approach to losing weight: diet, behavior, and lifestyle. The body is complex—so it is not just about eating the correct number of calories to lose weight. It matters what you eat, when, how much you eat, the interaction with the gut microbiome, and hormonal balance. This practical and interactive session will provide evidence-based recommendations and a handout of all the presented strategies.
