What’s the Healthy Dimensions Quick Start Workshop?

The HD-Quick Start Workshop is currently available in the Seattle, Washington area.
It provides the foundation and structure for you to discover, design, and begin your own individualized Personal Nutrition and Lifestyle Plan (PNLP). Many evidence-based tools are offered, and you choose the ones that work best for you.
You will learn how human metabolism works and how to correct a common metabolic disorder (excess insulin) that causes fat to be stored. Once insulin is reduced, cravings start to diminish, hunger is controlled and the body can begin burning fat instead of storing it.
You will also learn how the brain drives knee-jerk reactions and how to take control, change self-sabotaging beliefs, and end emotional eating. It’s easier than you think to get your brain working for you instead of against you in your weight loss efforts.
Participant interaction creates a dynamic and supportive setting. This interaction helps form a networking group to provide ongoing support for building your weight loss plan during your weight loss journey*.
