DIET and NUTRITION

With the LEARN program, you will first learn how to identify your health risks. From binge eating and calculating your Body Mass Index to determining your readiness and willingness to lose weight, these filter exercises provide you with an in-depth understanding of your own food issues and your current health status.

Over the course of the lessons you will learn how to deal with situations when there is pressure to eat, how to use the Food Guide Pyramid, how to deal with eating away from home, and how your attitude can affect your weight loss.

EXERCISE

The LEARN program teaches why exercise is important for both physical and mental well being and how it can assist in meeting your weight loss goals. In your lessons, you will learn tricks for how to stay motivated and how to incorporate physical activity into your busy schedule. Some sort of exercise or physical activity is recommended on most days of the week.

CONCLUSION

A well-respected and effective long-term solution to weight loss, the LEARN program is a comprehensive journey that assists you in achieving your weight loss goals. Designed by Kelly D. Brownell, Ph.D., the LEARN program can be taught via certified LEARN instructors or on your own through the manual and information book.

Tami

I did not personally do this diet, but my mom did. They had a LEARN instructor at the hospital she works for and they did it as a way for the whole staff to get healthy. My mom lost at least 40 pounds and on a 5'0" body, that is a lot. She learned a lot and has kept the weight off for at least 2 years. And if she feels herself slipping on diet, she goes back to the basics of what she learned. It was truly a life changer for her!
