  • A list of caloric content of food groups and meals based on breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snacks that will help individuals maintain/reach an ideal body weight,
  • Caloric expenditure from different types of exercise examples, and
  • Behaviors that will motivate individuals to achieve and maintain a healthier way of living (i.e. recording calories, pedometers, group support, medical advice).
  • Tips from the residents on how to stay healthy while on and off the clock
