Healthy Living Small Group Starts Thursday, September 7, 2023
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? In a rut? Broke from all the medicine that you take? Feel like there is a healthier person in there somewhere? If so, then this group is for you.
The Healthy Living Small Group will help you discover a path to better health (which usually results in shedding those extra pounds).
At our organizational meeting 7 PM on Thursday the 7th of September we will talk about the structure for the group. We’ll decide how often we want to meet and what topics the group wants to discuss. This meeting (and all future meetings) will be one hour in length. There will be a time of sharing with members talking about their struggles and wins for the week.
The topic for the first meeting will be Intermittent Fasting—what it is, how to begin, and what you can expect. We’ll talk about the science behind this method of time restricted eating and just how darn easy it is to implement.
Future topics will focus on healthy eating the Low Carb Healthy Fat (LCHF) or Keto way. We will cover essential supplements, strategies for dining out or with friends, what is a healthy fat anyway. We’ll take on high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, cancer and dementia, the food pyramid and why we want to turn it upside down, why the Standard American Diet (the acronym is SAD—well named) as well as a host of other inflammatory disease processes.
This is not a weigh in and shaming group. The goal is NOT weight loss—it is health gain. If you need to lose weight that will happen with this focus. If you are already at a correct weight this type of lifestyle will change your chronic pains to vitality and health. With knowledge comes the power to change—a support group just makes it so much easier.
As Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine thy food.”
Hope to see you there. You can sign up for this group on the Church Calendar, the Church Center Mobile App, or just let me, Mary Ann Johnson, as the facilitator know that you want to be a part of our group.
Yours in Christ,
