AAWCC Go Red Wellness Week Tip #3

What about Eating Out?

It takes effort and commitment to change eating habits.  People can’t easily change overnight.  In fact, it’s best to ease into new habits slowly.  This way you can form new, positive habits that will be just as comfortable as your old ones.  You’ll find that your new, healthy lifestyle will help you look better, feel better and have a healthier heart!

Going out to eat doesn’t mean losing control of your eating plan.  By thinking ahead and making smart choices. You can follow a low-saturated-fat, low cholesterol diet almost anywhere you go!

AAWCC at MCC Healthy Tip: Heading out to lunch today or dinner tonight, look up the restaurant’s menu and nutritional information online to plan your meal selections before you arrive.  Following the weightwatchers plan at work, try Dotti's Weight Loss Zone: for a list of restaurant menus with the weightwatchers point’s value calculated for you!

Join us at the American Association for Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC) Stress Relief Retreat and Wellness Fair on February 8th at the Gilman Lounge from 1:30pm – 3:30pm and learn about the Eat Well Live Well Challenge coming to MCC!
