Starting College This Fall? Learn To Beat The “Freshman 15” At Clarkston Workshop

Clarkston nutritionist, Cindy Crandell R.N. and Certified Nutritionist, of Forum Health Clarkston is conducting a 90-minute College Survival Workshop open to all college students and their parents. The workshop will be offered at 7:00 pm on four dates, August 2nd, 4th, 9th and 11th, in downtown Clarkston.

“The switch from high school to college is a major life change,” says Crandell. “Hectic schedules, higher expectations, new freedom and a more active social life add excitement and stress. New college students have so much to think about. For many, eating right becomes less of a priority. That’s why many college students gain weight during their first year. Some call it the ‘freshman 15’ -those unwanted pounds that sneak up on you due to new life habits. The extra pounds can mean lower energy -and at a time when you need all the energy you can muster.”

“The good news.” she says, “is that there is a way to provide new college students with a winning game plan. Cindy Crandell, R.N. The workshop will be fun, interactive, motivating and educational. We’ll provide dorm room remedies for healthier snacking, help students make smarter cafeteria choices and provide tips on conquering portion sizes. And, we’ll provide five fitness tips that fit a college schedule. In short, we’ll help you pull it all together for a healthier, happier, more successful you.”

The cost is $15 and includes all materials and recipes. Parents may attend free if accompanied by a student.
