"The Complex Equation of Change and Healthy Weight Management" with Danielle Hart


In the United States, over two-thirds of the population is overweight or obese, and exceeding a healthy weight range is a risk factor for many health concerns, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. There is no one cause of obesity, rather it is a complex interaction of genetic, nutritional, metabolic, lifestyle, behavioral, psychological, and physiological factors. Finding ways to support and inspire change and healthy weight is critical to our nation's and humanity's well-being, and may likely form an important part of your future or current practice. We will discuss this challenge, along with the use of analysis to gather information, assess readiness for change, prioritize underlying factors, increase awareness, and further our goal of creating a holistic, tailored approach to weight reduction and management to meet individual clients' needs. Danielle Hart is a graduate of the Masters of Science in Holistic Nutrition program at Hawthorn University. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism from Northeastern University. Her career to date has embraced writing, teaching, strategic consulting, solution development, and project management within the digital media, web development, adult learning, and performance improvement industries. She has crafted solutions geared to change the behavior of employees, given innumerable presentations on these solutions, and built a portfolio of digital tools for budgets, timelines, and risk and knowledge management. Danielle developed an interest in healthy eating and cooking, driven in part by her own multi-year struggle with her health and weight management. These combined factors led her to engage the Masters of Science in Holistic Nutrition program at Hawthorn University. Along the path of her studies, Danielle made a dramatic, positive improvement in her health concerns by changing her own behavior and diet. Over time, for both personal and professional reasons, Danielle developed an increasing interest in the challenging issue, or question, of how people change. The realization that knowledge alone is not enough to effectively create change has led to her focus on uncovering the complex equation of change and healthy weight management. To foster her career and influence in the field, Danielle is now focusing her full-time efforts on behavior change and weight reduction and maintenance.
