RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State University is starting a new program to ease students into healthier lifestyles.
The News & Observer reported the program called One Change begins Tuesday. The six-week program encourages students to change one thing at a time about their lives: to walk instead of ride, drink more water or eat more vegetables, for example.
Dietitian Lisa Eberhart of University Dining says the school will emphasize one change each week. Organizers have developed strategies to encourage participation in One Change, such as pedometer giveaways to encourage walking.
Calorie statistics posted in the cafeteria will be accompanied by the amount of exercise required to burn off the food. Prizes will be given to some who sign up for exercise classes at the recreation center for the first time.
