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:
- Eat less.
- Eat regular.
- Eat not more than three meals and two snacks per day.
- Eat from a smaller plate.
- Eat slowly.
- Focus on what you are eating.
The program also encompasses a “body fit class”, hosted by Physical therapist Laurens Dhaese. The first session starts today in St. John’s gym 4:00-5:00pm. During the program, the class will be every Wednesday and is free of charge for everyone who wants to participate. Wear loose sportive clothing with gym shoes and make sure to bring water and a towel.
