Now entering its 18h year, Wellness for Life provides support for seniors, HIV infected persons, and patients who are part of out-patient medical nutrition therapy programs. Each session begins with one standing exercise and a seated body workout so that those who are wheelchair bound can participate. A calorie-controlled diet plan is offered for those with weight-loss goals. The monthly weigh-in allows participants to record their progress and strive for a coveted prize. One of the favorite features of the program is a healthy-foods tasting session. Popular recipes and ethnic cuisine are prepared with wholesome ingredients and using healthy techniques. Samples of these dishes are served to participants. They also receive recipes, menus, shopping lists, and nutritional guides. For more information call Karen Congro at 718-250-6344.
