Mind Body Nutrition is proud to offer Food for Fertility, a group workshop focused on the needs of women struggling with infertility and excess body weight. Here are 5 things you’ll learn when you attend the Food for Fertility class
1) Learn the latest research on what foods can prepare your body for healthy conception and pregnancy. We’ll answer questions like, what foods should you be including in your fertility diet?
2) Prepare and enjoy tasty dishes every week with your classmates. Design your own Mason Jar lunches, massage kale salads and stir up a quick pot of lentil chili. You will also bring home dozens of new healthful recipes.
3) Master mindful eating techniques that will guide you to healthier eating. Practice mindfulness skills that allow you to increase your awareness of hunger and satisfaction without needing to diet or restrict food.
4) Experience fun ways to add more fitness into your day.Learn how to stretch and be fit in less time and have more time for fun. Increase your accountability for faster results.
5) Collect delicious recipes along with tips for meal planning and shopping. Tasting and preparing new recipes in class will inspire you to plan more healthful meals.
Your first visit is usually ninety-minutes. Pick a comfortable time. After your first visit, we can schedule a fifty-minute follow-up session as appropriate.
I will go into more detail about what counseling experiences you can expect. Below are my areas of expertise.
Before participating in classes, Judy first meets with patients for a 90-minute consultation. She works with patients to build an individually-designed nutrition and fitness program based on their current lifestyle, labs, weight and fertility plan in conjunction with their health care provider.
Food for Fertility’s highly interactive sessions offer participants lifestyle counseling in a supportive group setting. The classes foster skills that enable weight loss and fertility, focusing on healthy eating, meal-planning strategies, and exercise habits. We cook, taste, meal plan, and partake in light exercise. After the class, we take an optional 30 minute walk along beautiful Lake Union. The program consists of six weekly sessions on Saturday mornings; each session is 90 minutes.
