Presenter Bio:

Laura has been a registered dietitian for over 20 years and is passionate about spreading the good word of health to Boston and the Metro West world!   For the past eight years, Laura has had the pleasure working on the campus of Babson College every Tuesday, helping students make healthier food and fitness choices.  Off campus, she is out in the corporate world educating the masses by conducting interactive cooking & exercise demos, leading 10 and 12 week weight loss programs and making presentations and presenting on the wonders of preventative medicine through super food consumption!

 Best nutrition/health advice?  Always eat breakfast rich in protein and fiber!  Always include lean whole protein sources at meal and snack time. Eat more VEGGIES!  MORE MATTERS - go for 9 servings of fruits and veggies per day!  Keep hydrated! Get your Omega 3 fatty acids by eating salmon or sardines at least 2x per week!   Eat more fiber!  Cook and eat at home more often -with friends and family of course!!!  Practice moderation when it comes to sugar and alcohol intakes!  Move more - go for 10,000 steps per day!  Motion creates emotion!!  Strength train at least 2-3 times per week to preserve and build precious, metabolically active muscle.....AND sing, dance and keep playing, no matter what your age!!!
