Nutrition Education in New York City

There are some really cool workshops coming to New york City if any of you are interested.They will both be all over the country but it would be cool to see some of you there! First is the Nutrition Program from the Chek Institute that I attended. I highly recommend it to anyone - regardless of what you do for a living. The second is a talk by Nina Planck - author of one of my all time favorite books 'Real Food'. Nina just released 'Real Food for Mother and Baby' and you will be getting a review of it next week. If any of you want to know anything about food - get her books!

CHEK Institute Holistic Nutrition & Lifestyle Coach 

This is the first of a three-level Nutrition & Lifestyle educational program that is based upon the techniques that have helped thousands of people increase vitality, decrease stress and sculpt the body of their dreams. Each level looks in increasing detail at the underlying causes of disease and stress, considering the body as a “system of systems.” Using a coaching model, you will learn how disease and stress are preventable through healthy eating habits, lifestyle management and appropriate types of exercise.

You will understand why every meal, every bout of exercise and every late night has a hormonal consequence. You will be given tools, such as in-depth questionnaires, to assess your clients or yourselves and allow you to determine their or your readiness for change.

No matter what your profession, you’ll likely agree that just because someone is not sick, does not mean he is well! Most chronic diseases take years to develop, but a healthy lifestyle can go a long way toward prevention. The information presented in the CHEK Optimal Health and Fitness through Practical Nutrition & Holistic Lifestyle Coach Program (CHEK HLC) does not include “quick fixes”- which never work long term-but instead uses proven principles which build a strong foundation of health.

Fitness Professionals

can provide their clients with the missing link to achieve the body they want and to improve their vitality and energy levels.

Chiropractors, Physical Therapists and Rehabilitation Specialists

can use the special assessments and principles taught in this series of courses to help them achieve lasting results and improve the structural integrity of their patients!

Alternative Health care Providers and Massage Therapists

can quickly increase their value by offering their clients practical ways to live a lifestyle more in tune with the therapy they are providing.

Even those that are not fitness professionals
will enjoy this course! CHEK HLC 1 is designed for the layperson and professional alike, teaching the foundational principles of the CHEK approach to health and wellness. You can easily apply these techniques and methods to yourself and your family.

* How to identify problem issues and roadblocks to success and the order in which they need to be addressed.

* Understanding how sleep, stress, nutrition, digestion and exercise are correlated.

* Gain insight to health cycles such as physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects plus much, much more!

NINA PLANCK – Real Food for Mother and Baby

Following the success of Real Food, Nina Planck’s Real Food for Mother and Baby explains why real food is better for woman and child.

Nina Planck, one of the great food activists, changed the way we view old-fashioned foods like butter with her groundbreaking Real Food. T hen she got pregnant. Never one to accept conventional wisdom blindly, Nina found the usual advice about pregnancy and baby food riddled with myths and misunderstandings. In Real Food for Mother and Baby, Nina explains why many modern ideas about pregnancy and infant nutrition are wrongheaded and why traditional foods are best. While Nina can be controversial—her op-ed in the New York Times on vegan diets for infants was one of the paper’s most e-mailed articles— she’s no contrarian. Readers applaud her candor; they also trust her research and welcome her advice.

Nina’s basic premise hasn’t changed—whole foods are best—but some of the details are surprising. Pregnant women need meat and salt, not iron supplements. Nursing will be easier if you act like the mammal you are. Delaying the introduction of certain solid foods doesn’t prevent allergies. Cereals are not the best foods for tiny eaters; meat and egg yolks are better. From conception to two years, the body’s overwhelming needs are for quality fat and protein, not for carrots and low-fat dairy. Even as she casts a skeptical eye on the conventional wisdom, Nina is reassuring. She shows you how to keep your baby healthy on good, simple food. Real Food for Mother and Baby will be the new classic on eating for two.
