SAR prof launches online weight management program
Joan Salge Blake, a SAR clinical assistant professor of nutrition, has designed an interactive, Web-based program consisting of simple and realistic lifestyle changes to assist users in weight loss and management. Entitled 52 Small Steps to Weight Loss Program, the interactive program includes tips that teach individuals the benefits of lifestyle changes, rather than quick weight-loss programs, for long-term success. “The most common misconception is that weight loss has to be a painful process,” says Salge Blake. “In reality, small steps can add up to major lifestyle changes and lifetime weight management.” Visit http://people.bu.edu/salge to access the program.
