L.E.A.N. Workshops are the educational work of world renowned author and pediatrician William Sears, MD and exercise physiologist, Sean Foy, MA. Dr. Sears’ work makes up a family of workshops that educate and support parents, caregivers, and children in the four pillars of health: Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude and Nutrition (L.E.A.N.).
These four pillars of health work together to support and maintain the health and well-being for individuals of any age and in any stage of life. L.E.A.N. workshops are not your typical wellness programs. You will laugh your way through class, learn simple, time and money saving solutions for improving your family’s health, and leave empowered to lead others toward better health.
Unlike most wellness programs that focus solely on educating the child, L.E.A.N. believes that true education and change begins with parents or caregivers – the individuals who do the shopping, the cooking and, most importantly, model the behavior. L.E.A.N. Start workshops present simple solutions for families, communities, the workplace, healthcare facilities and schools.
Prime-Time Health workshops present a simple healthy-aging program to help adults and seniors uncover the secrets of aging well. Whether you are a forty-year-old in the prevention mind-set, or a senior already in repair mode, this workshop could provide what you need to help prevent disease and unhealthy aging, boost your energy, stress less, sleep better and sharpen your thinking.
Workshops are taught exclusively by Certified L.E.A.N. Coaches, like myself, in a variety of settings such as, community centers, hospitals, fitness centers, classrooms, one-on-one consultations, corporate wellness programs and more!
The L.E.A.N. programs teach that being healthy is not just about eating healthy food; it is about how Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude and Nutrition positively or negatively affect behavior, learning, attitude, energy levels, attention and much more. Participants attending L.E.A.N. workshops have the opportunity to join others on the same journey in a safe, relaxed and fun environment while sharing, supporting and encouraging one another. Participants will enjoy watching a brief vignette on a professional and comedic DVD, participate in hands-on learning activities, indulge in healthy, simple and delicious snacks and share their successes and challenges of living healthy in today’s busy world. Workshops can also be tailored to fit specific audience needs.
This means healthy living without smoking, excessive alcohol, or other unhealthy substances. The “L” in lifestyle could also stand for “love” and “laughter.” If there are not enough of these two “L’s” in your job, relationships, habits, or activities, some changes are needed. For some people, change is difficult, since the body and the mind often resist change, but remind yourself that we’re talking about change for the better, not for the worse.
A healthy, lean lifestyle is made up of hundreds of little habits and choices every day. In the end, it’s not so much a set of rules for living as it is a behavior that stems from a thorough understanding of what makes for healthy happy, strong bodies.
For those just starting out to develop a healthy lifestyle, here are Dr. Bill’s top ten habits of a lean lifestyle. These aren’t to be thought of as rules to follow. Rather, think of them as a good place to start to help you envision a happier, healthier life for you and your family.
Start today! Choose one of the ten healthy habits and practice it this week. Then, choose another next week. Don’t try to change everything all at once. Little steps toward a healthy lifestyle are better than no steps at all.
One of the healthiest ways to stay lean is to exercise. The more muscle you have, the more fat calories you can burn. If you wanna lose it, you gotta move it. The key to getting and staying lean is to set your fat point to fat-burn rather than fat-store. How? By eating right and exercising more. Also, regular, moderate exercise increases the white cell count, improving the body’s ability to fight off infection. Lastly, exercise is not only good for the body; it’s great for the brain. The brain is an oxygen hog, which is why it takes 25 percent of the blood that the heart pumps (more in children). Exercise delivers more oxygen to the brain and helps all tissue, especially brain tissue, use oxygen more efficiently, which translates into better thinking.
The New England Journal of Medicine recently published a study that showed that if one spouse is obese, the other is 37 percent more likely to become obese, too. Obesity is contagious, and your kids are not immune! Children of obese parents also are more likely to be overweight. The bottom line is that it begins with you, and setting up a family exercise plan is a great way to get moving together.
Trim the fat in your feelings by keeping your mind off counterproductive stuff. The attitude part of LEAN is about using your mind to help you get a lean body. You can’t just think fat away, but there are fascinating ways your mind can affect your body – for better or for worse. Stress gets in the way of good health. Your body can’t reap all the benefits of nutrition and exercise if it’s overstressed. And stress can get in the way of eating right and getting enough exercise.
Family stress has a negative impact on your health. It depresses your immune system, interrupts your sleep, and can cause you to overeat or make poor food choices. Fortunately, there are many way to reduce stress as a family.
The L.E.A.N program emphasizes a right-fat diet. Additionally, instead of a diet, let’s call it a change in eating style, meaning that you are focusing more on eating well rather than on eating less. To stay lean you have to do one of two things: eat more and burn more fat; or eat less and exercise less. You can’t have it both ways. You are likely to feel more full after eating a fiber-filled plant food than after a meal featuring tons of meat. Fiber gives you a feeling of fullness sooner for fewer calories, a good nutritional strategy for staying lean. So, if you are trying to lose weight, first fill up on a high-fiber salad. You’ll eat less of the main course and dessert.
When you eat right, you are more likely to feel right. The importance of good nutrition for your family cannot be over emphasized. We want to help you make wise food choices, and find foods that are not only convenient but smell good, taste good, and help you feel good and feed your body what it needs to thrive.
