nutrition classes begin in February
— 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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;
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.
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.
