Wellness Works Tip of the Week

  • Just say NOOOOOO to the crash diet, no one really wants to eat nothing but grapefruit or cabbage soup each day.
    If you slash your daily calories to fewer than 1,000, the pounds melt away. But when you eat so few calories, you train your metabolism to slow down. Once the diet is over, you have a body that burns calories more slowly, and you usually regain the weight.

    Need additional help reaching your weight loss goal?
    In honor of Wellness Week, any faculty, administrator, or staff member can sign-up to utilize any Weight Watchers services and
    receive a $50 reimbursement courtesy of the Wellness Works Committee!

    Just send proof of payment to Alison Burke C/O the Schumo Center via interoffice mail or email it to aburke@albright.edu.
    This offer is only good until October 1st, so don’t delay. Sign-up today!
