Free Weight Loss and Diabetes Control Seminars

May 19, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Attend these free, no sales pitch seminars and receive a no-strings attached, $30 gift that can help you to lose weight, reduce stress and have better diabetes control.

According to Devin Hastings, diabetes expert and president of the Minnesota Institute of Advanced Communication Skills, stress and obesity are significant factors that can cause diabetes and can also make diabetes much worse.

Mr. Hastings also states: “Approximately 90% of all diabetics are overweight and of those overweight diabetics, roughly 90% could dramatically reduce or eliminate their diabetes medications if they get to a healthy weight.”

When asked why the seminars are free, Mr. Hastings replied: “There are two reasons why the seminars are free. First, my mother died last Halloween because of diabetes and I have a strong passion to help other children avoid the pain of watching diabetes kill your mother. Also, if you are a parent with diabetes, you can discover an easy way where you can spare your children the pain of watching diabetes take you apart.”

He continued: “The second reason our school ( is hosting these seminars is because we want to raise awareness of an all volunteer website dedicated to reducing the stress levels of our soldiers and their families.”

Devin Hastings, a former Army Specialist, explained that the website,, is dedicated to creating a nationwide community of caring people who want to give to our soldiers and their families in some way other than just donating money.

When asked if there was any kind of solicitation on the website, Devin emphatically stated: "There are no ads or pitches on the website. I just want to let people know about the website so that maybe they will volunteer or at the least, they can let their friends know about it. We need to give back in any way we can to those who give so much for us."

When asked what types of volunteers was seeking, Mr. Hastings said: “Whether a person can rake leaves for a stressed military family at home, fix their car, offer healing services of any kind to families or soldiers, it doesn’t matter. What matters is we need to go beyond politics and get back to our American roots of caring for one another.”

The free weight loss and diabetes control seminars are held twice monthly at The Minnesota Institute of Advanced Communication Skills which is located at: 105060 Wayzata Blvd., Suite 15, Minnetonka, MN. 55305
