Peter Humphreys thinks so, and he's spent the past 11 years managing nightshelters in Hamilton.

Humphreys is about to step down after spending more than a decade of helping people who wouldn't otherwise have a place to sleep. Read more here.

:
FREEDOM FROM DIETS. Raglan. A healthy weight can be achieved & maintained without dieting, calorie counting or weighing & measuring food. In this workshop, we will discuss why diets don't work for most people and what Science says is the healthiest food plan for most humans. We will tease apart the diet related facts from the diet related myths & propaganda.

Come along and learn the classic reasons why people become over weight and specific skills and strategies that can help bring weight back under control. We will also look at exercise; why it is important for good health, but why it is not very helpful for weight loss.
