I Love my body program attracts many

The kick-off of the  “I Love My Body” program attracted some 45 persons, all interested in creating a healthier life style.

Dr. Gina Boorsma introduced the program that will run for 12 consecutive weeks. The participants established a baseline in weight, waist length, blood pressure, etc. The key messages of the first session were:


  1. Eat less.
  2. Eat regular.
  3. Eat not more than three  meals and two snacks per day.
  4. Eat from a smaller plate.
  5. Eat slowly.
  6. Focus on what you are eating.
