A free presentation on the the importance of balanced blood sugar and an information session on the program is set for Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at Fusion Cafe in Eagle.

Clinically-proven principles, similar to those used at exclusive resorts like Canyon Ranch, will be explained to help you take charge of your nutrition and weight-loss goals. With the holidays just around the corner, the six-week program is designed to help participants keep the pounds off, and even lose a few more. The six-week program is a comprehensive nutrition, lifestyle and health modification program. It will address weight loss, balancing blood sugar and its relationship to sleep, mood and hormone balancing, brain health, menopause and disease prevention.
