Week I: How We Got Here
We want you to succeed, so our first week is all about getting ready. First, we talk about the why; then we’ll talk about the how. We’ll learn how sugar became part of the American diet and some its long-term health effects. Then, we’ll review several strategies to start reducing sugar in your diet.
Week II: Understanding Nutrition
It’s hard to tell what “healthy” really is, even if the box says words like “All Natural” or “Organic.” We’ll learn what ingredients to look for, so you can make informed decisions about the foods you eat. In doing so, we’ll learn what nutrients compose a healthy diet, and how to find your own balance.
