Building Your Longevity Toolkit: Intermittent Fasting, The Power of Food and Other Simple Habits that Promote Healthy Aging

Week of October 19, 2024

Do you struggle with nagging health issues such as inflammation, pesky weight gain, poor sleep or declining energy? Come learn about a variety of free lifestyle tools and habits that can help you optimize your health through your diet and lifestyle choices.

In this workshop, you will learn about the importance of what, when and how you eat. Learn about intermittent fasting, which is not a diet but a simple lifestyle that offers many health benefits. When intermittent fasting, you are not “starving”, you are healing! By eating less often throughout the day (think fewer snacks, for example) you allow your body time to heal and repair. There is no need to buy special supplements, pills or foods. Discover which foods can age you, and which foods can prevent disease and encourage better health. Finally, learn about easy lifestyle practices you can adopt for more vibrant health.

We will cover the latest scientific studies, tips for success and just how easy it can be to build a longevity lifestyle. You will leave this program with a variety of action steps, tips, tools and resources tailored to your needs and health goals.
