Students learn healthy weight control
By Sarah Baker
The University Health Center
wants to teach students how to be
healthy from the inside out.
Active Weigh, a class which is
offered to all students and faculty,
helps its members learn techniques
to be healthier, said instructor Karen
Miller, a dietitian and medical nutri
“Participants in the class learn
weight management techniques,”
Miller said. “It’s not necessarily a
weight loss program.”
Through the class, members
have the opportunity to weigh in, lis
ten to presentations and participate
Topics include good nutrition,
exercise, behavior modification,
body image, fad diets and other
The 10-week class began
Monday, and runs from 12:10 p.m. to
12:50 p.m. in the health center.
The only requirements to enroll
are a medical evaluation and proof of
either being a UNL student or facul
ty member. The cost is $30 for stu
dents and $35 for faculty and staff.
Carol Ash, communications
coordinator at the health center, said
the class is a part of Well Worth It,
the university wellness program.
“There are a lot of people on
campus who are interested in better
ment of their health. This class fits
into the program,” Ash said.
Miller said that in the past two
years, numbers for the class have
been extremely low.
“Last year we had four partici
pants, and we only have two people
enrolled right now,” Miller said.
She didn’t know why the num
bers seemed to be decreasing, but
she said the class won’t be canceled.
She will allow interested people
to continue to enroll throughout the
first week of the class, she said.
The class success rate is not mea
sured in the amount of weight the
participants lose, Miller said.
“It depends on how you rate suc
cess,” Miller said. “If participants
leave knowing how to be healthier,
that is success.”
