Week 1: What to eat, how much to eat, and when to eat. Setting SMART goals to stay on track.
Here is an overview of what will be covered in this class:
Making changes to the way you eat can be daunting. It can be difficult to know what to do first. And once you decide on what you want to do, you need the knowledge and a plan to make it happen.
This class will break down the different parts of what, how and when you eat. We will review the Mediterranean diet as an example of what to eat. We will talk about using portion control – and awareness – as a strategy of how to eat. And we will cover the timing of meals for when to eat. All of this will be help you decide which SMART nutrition goals you want to set for yourself.
The group will also share what has and what has not worked in the past when trying to change their dietary habits.
