TRAVEL ADVICE

Students traveling for mission work or for pleasure may consult with the Nurse regarding travel health needs. The Wellness Center, however, is not a travel clinic. Recommendations are based on the following sources: www.cdc.gov/travel and current medical literature. Students are encouraged to review CDC (Center for Disease Control) website information for their specific destination(s).

Healthy Eating Tips

  • Go to nnudining.com to plan your menus before entering the dining hall.
  • Find out what your perfect weight should be and set your goal, as well as determining a healthy eating and exercise plan. Make it fun and create a game of counting calories versus calorie burning.
  • Stay away from sweets and things made with lots of white flour and sugar.
  • Try whole wheat instead of white.
  • The more colorful the food on your plate, the healthier it is.
  • The salad bar is a great place to eat, but if you saturate your salad with too much dressing you're defeating the purpose.
  • Make a sandwich on whole wheat or seven-grain bread--or no bread at all. Instead of potato chips eat a baked potato.
  • Portion control is the key. Follow the 3oz to 4oz rule. A plate of food should only be 3 - 4 ounces per serving per item.
