Miriam E. Nelson, Ph D and Jennifer Ackerman have written a new book titled “The Strong Women’s Guide to Total Health.” Dr. Nelson also developed the program “Strong Women, Strong Bones” which the Brown County UW-Extension will be offering later this year.

  • Eat a variety of foods filled with great flavor. Use herbs and spices, along with olive oil to flavor food without adding lots of fat, salt and sugar.
  • Limit portion sizes of calorie-rich foods. Bigger servings of high calorie foods, even when they seem to offer great value, are not better if they boost calorie intake and encourage over eating.
