Flemington throws its weight behind nutritional program

September 10, 2013 by  

The Center for Nutrition and Diabetes Management in Flemington will soon be offering a new session of the ‘Why Can’t I Lose Weight?’ program, which may particularly interest those who have overindulged during the summer. The program is designed for adults in the area who are struggling to lose or keep off extra weight.

The program will address several common concerns and issues connected to shedding the pounds or maintaining a healthy weight. The course teaches participants the basics and benefits of meal planning, and will also discuss intuitive eating and metabolism. In addition, people will learn to read nutrition labels and will receive exercise recommendations.

The Center is part of Hunterdon Healthcare, and the organization might consider using brochure printers to advertise the program, which is offered four times per year and takes place over an eight-week period. Kathleen Lombardi, RD, BS, CDE and Paula Hazard, RD, BS, CDE will lead the two upcoming sessions.

The goal of the program is to change people’s minds about weight loss. It hopes to convince those who think losing weight is a pointless endeavor that it can be done. ‘Why Can’t I Lose Weight?’ is suitable for people who suffer from diabetes or who have any another condition based on nutrition.

Sessions begin on September 16 from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm and on September 17, from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. Both sessions are held at the Wescott Medical Arts Center, 9100 Wescott Drive, Suite 102. The cost of the program is $125, due on the first day, or $100 for people over age 65.
