Each Saturday Golden Goalies come together to catch up on the week’s events, to weigh in, and to share ideas about weight loss. Sometimes we have a roundtable discussion on topics such as ways to get more movement into our daily routine. Other times we have “therapy time,” usually presented by a member about one aspect of health. And sometimes we have a guest speaker.
Three times in the last few months we have had a pair of guest speakers who are experts in the area of nutrition and pharmacology. I’m referring to Adam and Taylor McCown, who own the new MedMetrics pharmacy. We have discussed the insulin response, the role of carbs in healthy eating and more esoteric topics such as L-carnatine.
Adam and Taylor share research and their experiences related to health, especially as it affects weight. All our members appreciate their time, patience and expertise. We look forward to another visit from them in April.
Help us welcome Adam and Taylor when they return. You will find support, encouragement, shared wisdom and some good laughs. Weigh-in is between 7:00-7:40 a.m. in the Mirror Room of Sun Lakes Country Club. The meeting starts after weigh-in next door in the Friendship Room. Contact Rita at 895-2559 for more information.
