More than 39 percent of Americans are overweight — and many have been struggling with their weight for years.

Sharon Rousmaniere, CHC, will discuss why healthy weight loss doesn’t have to be a struggle. There are reasons why the body holds onto weight – and the typical calorie or point counting/more exercise paradigm often doesn’t address the true issues.

Learn why most of the approaches to weight loss either don’t work or aren’t sustainable — and some things you can do instead.

Sponsored by the Monadnock Food Coop. Thursday, Nov. 21, 2019, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Hannah Grimes Center, 25 Roxbury St., Keene. The talk is free, but registration is requested at outreach@monadnockfood.coop or 283-5401.
