Metabolism and Calorie Needs: Finding a Balance; September 15; noon–1p.m.; free.
Calorie consumption is an important part of weight loss. Regardless of whether your diet focuses on fat or carbohydrate intake, you’ll gain weight if you take in more calories than your body needs. Come to this workshop to learn about and better understand the concept of metabolism and calorie requirements. It will be led by Terri Brownlee, regional director of nutrition for Bon Appétit Management Co.
