Gaining weight is more complex than simply not having time to jog. With each decade of life, it gets more and more difficult to deal with weight gain, and those old techniques that didn’t work in the first place might even result in more added pounds to deal with. Did you know that having just one can of soda per day for a year can result in a 5-10 pounds of extra weight? Or that being sleep deprived sends you on a sugar hunt during the day in order to keep you awake? Learn how Dr. Ric and his incredible team of life-changers design specific, individual plans that help you do what’s best for your body. In this class, you will discover that while one size does NOT fit all, simple lifestyle adjustments WILL help you get a handle on your health.
