Fall Reboot! [Gray-New Gloucester Adult & Community Education]

Fall Reboot “Diet”

Are you feeling lousy, bloated, stressed and sluggish?  Would you like to kick off Fall in a healthy way, with healthy lifestyle changes.

 

Reboot your body!

Reboot is not actually a diet, but rather a way of resetting your body’s systems through a temporary change in the foods you consume.Rebooting will stimulate your immune system, help you determine if any of the foods you are consuming are adversely effecting your health, help you to engage in healthy eating patterns, and potentially to help you lose weight. A Reboot is a challenge, particularly for those who are finicky eaters, but I will guide you in directions that you will be able to find foods you will like to get you through it.  28 days can seem like a huge commitment, but a lifetime of health and change can come from it.  You can do it, I can help! At our 1st Meeting we will go over the program plan and synopsis, food ideas and recipes, question & answers followed by grocery store tour when you can purchase some of the foods we discuss in class. We will meet each Friday Night to discuss what lies ahead for the week to come. During the 4th meeting we will discuss how to end your Reboot and what to expect. I can help you through this 28 days, and make it fun. With real world food!

Instructor: Deanna McCormack

Fridays, 9/19- 5-8pm, 9/26 - 6-8:30pm, 10/3 & 10/10 - 6-7pm

Location: GNGHS

Fee: $60
