Well I hopped on a plane and headed to Denver and I am now a Dr.Sears Certified L.e.a.n coach. For those you you who have no idea what that means, here are a few of the seminars I will be offering soon:

From "America's Pediatrician" Dr. William Sears, L.E.A.N. is a series of effective, innovative and educational programs that teach practical and easy to follow methods for parents and children to create a lifetime of health.

All L.E.A.N. Programs focus on the four pillars of health:

L - Lifestyle: How we live
This means healthy living without smoking, excessive alcohol, or other unhealthy substances.

E - 
Exercise: How we move
One of the healthiest ways to stay lean is to exercise. The more muscle you have, the more fat calories you can burn.

A - Attitude: How we think
Trim the fat in your feelings by keeping your mind off counterproductive stuff.

N - Nutrition: How we eat
Emphasize a fresh, real-foods diet.
