Rooksana Randeree, RD, clinical dietitian for Riverside Health Care Facilities, Inc., is offering a “Healthy You” weight management program for free at La Verendrye hospital here.
The program is a group weight management approach that focuses on lifestyle changes that may help you reach—and maintain—a healthier body weight or shape.
“The aim of this program is to help you make permanent lifestyle changes,” explained Randeree.
“This is not a program that focuses on ‘dieting,’” she stressed.
“You will be setting your own goals and making your own plan to work towards them.”
The program begins next Tuesday (Jan. 17) and will run for five weeks.
The sessions are 90 minutes long, during which you will learn about how nutrition, physical activity, your behaviours, and your environment affect your body size.
You also will learn how to use this information in your day-to-day life by working with other group members, doing practical activities, and learning from each other’s experiences.
The program is free but space is limited.
