'Eat Well, Live Well' topic for lecture series
Published 10:31 am, Sunday, August 3, 2014
"Eat Well, Live Well" is the next topic in the Waveny LifeCare Network and Norwalk Hospital lecture series Thursday, Aug. 21, at 6 p.m. at Waveny, 3 Farm Road, New Canaan.
The featured speaker is Barbara Schmidt, a nutrition lifestyle program specialist at Norwalk Hospital.
Schmidt will discuss the importance of eating healthy, which involves establishing lifestyle changes and avoiding the "dieting traps."
During her presentation, she will offer tips such as eating every three to four hours.
"Many dieters skip breakfast or try desperately not to eat too much early in the day," she said. "A tiny bowl of cereal for breakfast and a salad for lunch sets the stage for raging hunger by 4 p.m. and you want to eat everything in sight. Eating smaller amounts of foods more often helps with hunger control. Rather than adding more unwanted calories, planned snacking helps us feel satisfied with reasonable food portions. This is eating well."
Schmidt's experience includes working with the New York Hospital Cornell Medical Center, New York University Medical Center and the American Fitness Institute. She teaches the Transformations weight loss program at Norwalk Hospital.
