Susan Kleiner to speak at Wilcox Memorial Hospital

Susan M. Kleiner, Ph.D., RD, FACN, CNS will speak at Wilcox Memorial Hospital on Wednesday, April 30, at 6:30 p.m.

She will tall on eating the right foods and maintaining a strong and healthy body.

Sponsored by Get Fit Kauai and Wilcox Health, “Food as Fuel: Changing the Weight Loss Paradigm” is a free community education session, which will be held in conference rooms ABC at the hospital.

Light and healthy refreshments will be served, and reservations for a seat can be made by calling 245-1005.

Kleiner is in Hawai’i for a brief visit, attending a special seminar at the University of Hawai’i in Manoa as a panelist, and will be on Kaua’i for only one day for this presentation.

Her talk will focus on increasing positive health behaviors. “Weight loss is not a goal, but a long term outcome of achieving many small short term goals toward healthful lifestyle habits. Rather than eating less and tearing our bodies down, we need to increase calories to increase exercise intensity, to build muscle and strength, then burn fat. This is the road to long term health and body weight maintenance,” she says.

Kleiner is the foremost nutrition authority on eating for strength, and her POWER EATING® program has reshaped the lives of thousands. Dr. Kleiner is the owner of HIGH PERFORMANCE NUTRITION®, a consulting firm specializing in media communications, industry consulting, and personal counseling, on Mercer Island, Washington. She is also an Affiliate Assistant Professor in the Department of Medical History and Ethics at The University of Washington School of Medicine.
