Quick Start to a Healthier You
Information Session

Are you ready to start improving your health? The session focuses on the many lifestyle factors that influence body weight such as portion sizes, meal timing and balance, stress, sleep, fluids, medication, movement and more. The session is led by a Barrie and Community Family Health Team Registered Dietitian.

What will I learn during this Information Session?

The session will assist you to set goals to start making personal lifestyle changes. You will have a greater understanding of what the body requires to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight and how to implement these lifestyle changes. This course has been recently updated to a more comprehensive 2-week program: Week 1 focuses on nutrition. Week 2 shifts the focus to the other key factors that contribute to our health and body weight.

Program Goals

  • To learn the factors involved in promoting a healthy mind and body.
  • To understand proper portion sizes and meal balance.
