Healthy living starts in 'Beginnings' class

Teachers adults how to choose nutritious food

(Continued)

Holtzleiter said the two have maintained Landess’ suggested plant-based diet for the most part since they first took the class five years ago.

She believes the program has helped her avoid certain ailments that some of her family members have gone through.

“I’m a little older now than two of my sisters were when they were diagnosed with diabetes,” Holtzleiter said. “I’ve gained some of the weight back but not much.”

Since taking the class five years ago, Holtzleiter has returned to Healthy Beginnings for refreshers and to volunteer.

Landess said she normally holds the class twice a year, and that up to 40 percent of participants in each series are former students.

Returning students aren’t charged for the class and Landess sees it as a refresher course so they can maintain the lifestyle.

“We encourage them to come back because change is usually slow for most people,” she said. “First, they’re not going to remember everything. And second, they’re not going to incorporate everything they’re taught the first time.”

Healthy Beginnings runs 5:30 to 6 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays for a month starting next week. The program costs $130 per person or $215 for a couple. Registration runs 7 to 8 p.m. today at the Community Hospital Education Center, north of hospital, or 7 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Cross Street Christian School, 2318 W. Cross St.
