Joyful Living Services is giving a Certified Weight Control Counselor Course.
This course contains 16 lessons on the web, webinar, and telephone. The web files are in PDF format and can be downloaded. We will let you know when you can watch the webinars and will hold scheduled telephone support at your convenience. You will receive a certificate at the end of this course. There is homework with each session and there is a test at the end of the course. The homework and test will be graded as you turn them in. They will need to be mailed or e-mailed to us. This course is on your own time so you can complete the lessons at your own pace. If you are going on vacation, are ill, or don’t have the time every week to read the lesson and complete the homework you will not be penalized. Because this course is online and is on your own time, you are responsible for turning in your homework when it is done. You will receive your certificate once all the homework has been turned in and once your final exam is graded and passed.
This course costs $300. It can be paid by check, credit card, or bank wire.

Weight gain is a huge problem in the world. Weight gain is an increase in body weight. This can involve an increase in muscle mass, fat deposits, excess fluids such as water or other factors. Weight gain can be a symptom of a serious medical condition.
Certain food groups (like sugar, grains, dairy and legumes) could be having a negative impact on your health and fitness without you even realizing it. Are your energy levels inconsistent or non-existent? Do you have aches and pains that can’t be explained by over-use or injury? Are you having a hard time losing weight no matter how hard you try? Do you have some sort of condition (like skin issues, digestive ailments, seasonal allergies or fertility issues) that medication hasn’t helped? These symptoms may be directly related to the foods you eat—even the “healthy” stuff.
This class will help you learn for yourself and teach your clients how to lose weight and improve their body composition without counting or restricting calories. Also commonly reported are consistently high energy levels, improved athletic performance, better sleep, improved focus and mental clarity, and a sunnier disposition.
This class is intended for both people who want to lose and control their weight as well as those who want to learn how to teach clients how to lose and control their weight.
