"Don't dig your grave with your own knife and fork." That's a word of wisdom being offered during one local lifestyle improvement program slated to begin next month.

"Drop 10 in 10" is a way to learn how to eat healthier, reduce stress and feel better in just 10 weeks. It's a preventative health program offered by Highmark West Virginia that will take place at United Hospital Center.

It's supposed to make people realize that adapting to healthier lifestyles can be easy. It's also unique to each person. During the ten weeks, people can learn how to eat the right amount of calories to cater to their lifestyle goals. This means some people may want to lose 10 pounds, others may want to see 10% of their body weight gone.
Each week the individuals in the class will map out their meals and exercise. While exercise is not done in class, it is encouraged for participants to do on their own. Every week they'll get some ideas on what types they should do to help them reach their goals.
"One of our things is to try and help people control their chronic disease and manage that. We're looking at diabetes, hypertension and anything else that's going to be related to being overweight. We found, through literature, that if you lose ten percent of your body weight that you can actually help control chronic diseases," said Toni Marascio Williams, UHC Family Nurse Practitioner.
If you're 18 or older you can sign up for the class. Call Kathy at 681-342-1600. Classes start Monday, March 4 at 6:30 p.m.
