Do you want to rev up your metabolism and burn more calories around the clock? There are certain things about your metabolism you cannot control, like gender, age, and genetics. There are some things, however, that you can control, such as when and how you exercise, how much you eat, and when and what you eat. In this popular class, you will learn ways to encourage your body to burn calories, rather than storing them as fat. Bring a calculator and learn how to estimate your own basal metabolic rate!

Instructor: Joyce Hanna, MA, MS, is the Associate Director of HIP, and an exercise physiologist, nutritionist, and behavioral health consultant. Joyce has been with HIP since 1991, and is the director of the annual Stanford Alumni Retreat for Women, and director of Living Strong Living Well, an exercise program for cancer survivors.

NEW CLASS: Diet How To's of Metabolic Homeostasis
Thu 10/11-11/01 11:45 am-1:15 pm

Homeostasis describes how the human body regulates fluid, nutrients, and temperature balance. The current diet culture repeatedly tells us that we must do all the work to keep our body in balance through "clean eating," fasting, and cleansing. These messages lead to confusion and sometimes anxiety over not doing the right thing.
Join this 4-week class to both learn and practice sound nutrition principles. Not only will you learn the basics of nutrition from a metabolic perspective, you will participate in a healthy diet boot camp where each week, as a group, we will review eating patterns and practice what we learn. There will be opportunities to share the emotional and physical changes we experience. Learn how the digestive system and metabolic system (related to hunger and satiation) work, and increase your confidence to choose foods that best meet your personal health needs.

Instructor: Gretchen George, PhD, RD, is an Assistant Professor in Nutrition at San Francisco State University. She worked at Stanford Prevention Research Center prior to her faculty position as a Research Dietitian on multiple weight loss studies. She currently focuses her work on body dissatisfaction, environmental stress, and health risk factors in overweight and obese youth and also in college students majoring in health-related professions.

Assuming you have at least a vague idea of what a calorie is, you are probably aware that one way or another too many of these mysterious calories must be contributing to the 2/3 of Americans that are either overweight or obese. If you eat more calories than you spend, you gain weight. To lose weight, just the opposite, right? It doesn?t matter if those calories come from bread or butter or beef, or does it? Does celery really have negative calories? What about those zero calorie artificial sweeteners? All of this and suggestions for choosing the best calories for optimal health and weight control will be discussed.

The health benefits of a diet high in dietary fiber are well established. Studies show eating fiber results in a reduced incidence of cardiovascular disease, cancer, inflammation, diabetes and obesity. Why is the non-digestible part of our diet so beneficial to our health? One reason is that our intestinal microbiota uses fiber as its primary fuel and nourishment. By choosing foods high in fiber, we have the potential to modify the gut microbiome, and our health in a positive way.

Join Dr. Lisa Offringa in this noon hour webinar to learn about the fascinating universe of our intestinal microbiome, learn how to identify high fiber foods and ways to include more fiber into your daily diet.
