This is a series of monthly meetings during which our dietitian Bonnie Kastin will reveal our approach to healthy eating. It begins with a weigh-in and measurement of metabolic rate. Then goals are set for individual weight loss, gain or maintenance.
It is a 12 month series with each session focusing on a particular theme.
The next meeting will be June 10th at 9am in our Glenview Office. The topic: "Cholesterol: Tips for sticking to the diet when eating out"
Part II: The CAGE Exercise Prescription
This part of the Lifestyle Program is directed by Nancy Velasco our advanced practice nurse. Also meeting monthly, Nancy will cover the benefits of exercise, ways to safely exercise and address issues in special populations such as those with arthritis.
Most importantly, Nancy will also be coordinating our walking club which will meet for group exercise twice a week, Tuesday at 1:00pm and Thursday at 9:00am departing from our Glenview office - weather permitting.
