Corporate Presentations

Fostering Well Adjusted, Productive Employees:

I. Finding Your Ideal Weight... Without Dieting!
Imagine helping employees to make peace with food and body image while increasing the “bottom line.” Employer costs for unfit employees: Greater absenteeism, increased health care, distracted workers, diminished confidence, ineffective performance and discrimination against qualified obese candidates. Myths Vs. Realities:  NIH: 86,000 fewer deaths for overweight compared to “normal” weight.  Increased deaths and costly medical conditions found with the thinnest as well as heaviest. Points of Discussion: Manage fats, carbs and emotional eating. Reduce overeating, under-eating and yo-yo dieting. Artificial sweeteners sabotage dieters.  Incorporate gender-based cravings.  Learn about “obesity crisis” media spin, and “health at every size.”  Enjoy “healthy junk foods.” (Samples Possible)

Here is a sample of Dr. Abby in front of a
business audience, talking about finding your
ideal weight and “healthy junk food.”

V.  Parenting Strategies:  Raising Well-Adjusted Kids Without Having A Breakdown.
Being an effective parent means coming to work ready to work, and not obsessing about struggles at home.  It is often said that children do not come with a manual, but here it is!  These practical parenting tips are applicable for every age child.  Strategies are presented as formulas, so that different age-related problems can be plugged in and solutions pop out!  Help is on the way!
