The school district I work in is having a one credit class opportunity in February. I was not paying attention to what it was, but then this caught my attention:
Massive Action Towards Health
This class is limited to 20 participants.
One NNU credit can be earned by completing this class. $60 for the credit.
TO BE HELD
Madison Junior High Room 206 134 Madison Ave, Rexburg, ID 83440
Jan 9, 16, 23 30, Feb 6th ---Wednesdays---4:00--7:00
This class is designed to help those who struggle making peace with food. It is a plan to get healthy and feel well. Students will commit to 4 “Bright Line” boundaries - no sugar, no flour, 3 meals each day & controlled portions for 5 weeks. Students who follow this plan will likely lose 1-3 pounds per week.
Using the book, Bright Line Eating by Susan Peirce Thompson which is rooted in cutting-edge neuroscience, psychology, and biology, we will discuss and practice topics surrounding the willpower gap, insatiable hunger, overpowering cravings, the susceptibility scale & the saboteur.
Each 3- hour class will include instruction and support, writing in our journals, submitting a google form, walking, and eating a delicious supper that we prepare together

Except Thompson is making hundreds of thousands of dollars, maybe even millions, by now on her courses. I'm sure she is going to do some good, too.
She got her idea originally from OA. And she WAS obese, and she is a neuroscientist, so she found plenty of backing for the restrictions.
But I still think that is a terrible idea for junior high students. _________________ Count plates, not calories. Three a day. 8 years & counting
