Learn how to boost mental and physical performance on a plant-based nutrition program. Based on the international bestseller "Thrive," I'll be talking on a few topics for half the session and the other half of the session will be for Q&A and interacting in the virtual class. You can find Thrive at http://lrnit.lv/thrive-book Topics will include: - High net gain nutrition: what it is and how you can benefits from it - Biological debt: what it is, why it's rampant in North america, and how to ensure you're not a victim - Boost energy holistically, without stimulants - Enhance sleep quality (and therefore reduce amount of sleep needed to function at your best) - Reduce recovery time needed between workout and therefore improve athletic performance - Building a biologically younger body: how you can do it - Alkaline-forming nutrition: How you can ensure what you eat will enhance your body's efficiency and conserve energy with every move - How to enhance mental clarity and improve focus and productivity
Even when you try to cook from scratch, many recipes call for processed ingredients: canned cream of chicken soup, onion soup mix, jarred mayonnaise, or boxed stuffing mix. You know you want to eat real food, but what about all your favorite recipes? They don't have to go in the circular file - learn to reverse engineer recipes calling from cream of whatever soup in this half hour demonstration. I'll make a basic cream sauce and show you how to adapt it to become many different flavors, then talk a little philosophy on how to think about reverse engineering your favorite recipes so you can really use whole foods and feel great about it.

What is the diet industry hiding from you? Why do all diets fail? Why can't you lose weight? Why are you trying to exercise and no fat is moving off your body? In this class you will learn important information about weight loss that is not communicated in the media. You will be empowered with information that will help you understand how to achieve a healthy weight and maintain it for a life time. We will also discuss the "skinny on fat". That fat is a a protector and a insulator and is on your body for specific reasons. This means that losing weight is a process of connecting with your health and becoming health conscious in new ways, and requires you to have practices of health and awareness. Be prepared to leave the "fix it", "pill it",or "cut it off" mentality behind and step into your optimal weight for life!

Founder of the Clean Program, was born in Uruguay. He graduated from medical school there in 1990 and moved to New York City for his postgraduate training. He completed three years of training in Internal Medicine at NYU Downtown Hospital and three more years of fellowship in Cardiovascular Diseases at Lenox Hill Hospital. The drastic change in lifestyle and diet resulting from his move to New York City soon showed up as irritable bowel syndrome and depression. Becoming a patient of the system he was practicing was such a shock, that it started his journey in search of an alternative solution to his health problems. His findings are the subject of his first book, Clean: The Revolutionary Program To Restore the Body’s Natural Ability to Heal Itself, where Dr. Junger describes how he became aware of the toxicity of our planet. He also explains how detoxification and cleansing have been around for thousands of years, but the knowledge has been lost, and right now it’s more important than ever to reclaim this information. Most importantly, Clean is a manual for readers to learn how to turn on and work with their own detoxification systems to restore and maintain optimal health.
