(8/7/13) For the second time this year, Paula Przywojski, Registered Dietitian at Black River Memorial Hospital is offering a month-long, myth-busting nutrition program that is FREE of charge and open to the public!

Participants can attend any one or all of the FREE nutrition education sessions to help dispel the nutrition myths created by fad diets and to get back to the basics of good nutrition. The program consists of four sessions, starting on September 9th, 2013. Each session will be held at Black River Memorial Hospital in the Dorothy Halvorson Conference room. The session dates and topics are:

September 9th (6:30 p.m.) – WHY DIETS DON'T WORK

A diet may help individuals lose weight but may not help them keep it off. Participants will learn how some diets may not be good for the body.

September 16th (6:30 p.m.) – THE TRUTH ABOUT CARBS

Carbohydrates have gotten such a bad rap but they are actually an essential part of healthy eating. Learn how to appropriately incorporate them into meals.

September 23rd (6:30 p.m.) – THE TRUTH ABOUT PROTEIN & FLUID

This session will discuss the importance of protein when planning meals, the best sources of protein and how much individuals really need.

September 30th (6:30 p.m.) – FAT FACTS AND PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER

This session will teach truths about fat and how to put knowledge of carbs, proteins and fat all together to create a well-balanced and healthy meal.

Przywojski, also known as "Paula the Dietitian" said, "Through this series of educational classes, we will show people how to fit well-balanced meals into their individual lifestyles".

There will be door prizes given away at each session.

If you missed the first series, offered in March, this is your opportunity! Space is limited. Register today by calling 715-284-1325.
