TWU community nutrition classes begin in February


DENTON — Long before it was fashionable to discuss trans fats or good and bad cholesterol, Mary Kuhfeldt, studied the impact of diet on longer life expectancy, a desire to raise healthier families and people facing chronic illnesses. She will share that information in community nutrition classes beginning in February at Texas Woman’s University in Denton.

Ms. Kuhfeldt, MS, RD, LD, will teach “Gain the Edge, Lose the Weight” on Tuesdays beginning Feb. 6 and Fridays beginning April 6; and “‘A Healthy Diabetic’ is NOT an Oxymoron” on Fridays beginning Feb. 9 and Tuesdays beginning April 3. Class times for each four-week session vary. Registration is $49 for each workshop and is available online at www.twu.edu/lifelong. For more information, contact the TWU Office of Lifelong Learning at 940-898-3408 or email lifelonginfo@twu.edu.

“‘A Healthy Diabetic’ is NOT an Oxymoron” is designed for non-insulin-dependent individuals with diabetes. Participants will learn to identify the hidden ingredients that can sabotage your quest for health; simplify “carb” counting and identify preferred serving sizes; obtain a personal profile and recommended menu plan for reaching personal health goals; and more.

“Gain the Edge, Lose the Weight” offers personal instruction within a small-group setting. Sessions are designed to motivate participants, assess their needs and establish a personal plan to reach each individual’s healthy body weight.

Ms. Kuhfeldt received her bachelor’s degree in nutrition and dietetics from the University of California-Davis, and completed a United States Air Force dietetic internship before earning her master’s degree from TWU.
