How many of you made a New Year’s Resolution to lose weight this year? If you’re like the average American, about half of you readers want to lose weight in 2014. Well, I have great news for you. The Family Nutrition Program has a newly redesigned program to help you meet your weight loss goals called Eat Smart, Move More, Slim Down.
In this program, you’ll learn strategies to make small changes to help you look and feel your best. Each session focuses on both basic nutrition concepts and a proven tactic to help you in your weight loss journey.
These tactics include:
- Keeping a food diary
- Setting SMART Goals
- Practicing portion control
- Eating more of the right foods
- Limiting unhealthy foods
- Sticking with new habits by getting organized
- Creating a plan for long-term success
The most exciting addition to the Eat Smart, Move More, Slim Down program is our new online support and two free follow-up sessions with a Registered Dietitian.
We created a new Eat Smart, Move More, Slim Down Facebook page so that you can be a part of the online community of other Virginians working to lose weight and get in shape. Here you can ask for advice, share your successes and receive more helpful tips and advice for living a healthier life. We will also be sharing sample meal plans using FNP’s low-cost, tasty recipes as well as short, but effective, exercise routines for beginners.
Each Eat Smart, Move More, Slim Down graduate will also have the opportunity to speak with a Registered Dietitian for expert help in meeting weight loss goals. This can be done over the phone, by Skype or Google video chats, or whatever works best for you. (Due to the high cost of travelling across the state, we cannot offer in-person visits.)
If you are ready to live your dream and tackle your 2014 weight loss resolution, we can help! Contact us by phone at 1-888-814-7627 or by finding a Program Assistant near you to ask about joining the Eat Smart, Move More, Slim Down program.
