Over the Teacups

Giving Voice to the Tea Industry

Weight Control Means Better Education

Posted on | September 28, 2010 | Comments

As people become more health conscious and inquire about the health benefits of tea, we are also seeking better nutritional and dietary education.

Registered dietician, Diane Dressel, program coordinator of weight management services at Luther Midelfort, shares facts about nutrition in an excellent new series of online videos called “Food for Thought.”

For example to compute the number of calories needed per day, women should multiplying 10 calories per their desired weight times 1.0 while men should multiply by 1.1 (before computing for exercise adjustments).

More about “Food for Thought” is found at the Luther Midelfort blog at Mayo Health System.

Yes! Nutrition is very important. And sometimes it is surprising who doesn't stay aware of nutrition. One of my very distantly related relative-to-someone-who's-married-to-a-relative is a nurse. Worked for years as a nurse, still works as a nurse I believe. And cooks most vegetables to a pulp, sees nothing wrong with cooking fish by sauteing them in heated margarine, and also nothing wrong with feeding a bowl of Cool Whip to a kid as a snack. Wow!
