3 Easy Ways to Stay Healthy

1. Create your weight: KIWH is offering a 12-week course to help you lose weight and make healthy lifestyle changes. The course, developed and taught by registered dietitians, offers you the information and inspiration to get to your ideal weight – and stay there. Register for either an afternoon session or an evening session.

2. Pack it up: Love to eat out but hate the extra calories that come with your favorite restaurant meal? Choose steamed, broiled or stir-fried options rather than fried or creamy ones. Ask for a take-out container when your meal arrives so you can take half your meal home to enjoy the next day. Learn more about healthy nutrition .

3. Weight it out: Adding strength training to your exercise routine is a great way to improve your heart health and metabolism and burn a lot of calories. Try lifting free weights or get down for stomach crunches and push-ups for 20 minutes twice a week. You’ll see and feel a difference. Learn more about heart healthy exercise.
