HARRISBURG, Pa., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Anyone looking for an easy way to track and tailor their lifestyle habits to meet their personal health goals needs to look no further than the Capital Blue retail store at the Promenade Shops in Saucon Valley. That is where Capital BlueCross and Good Measures are hosting a series of one-hour seminars on how to download, set-up and use the Good Measures contextual nutrition and lifestyle program.
Contextual nutrition is an approach that takes into account an individual's personal preferences, dietary needs and nutritional goals. After establishing their personal profile, program participants input and track their nutritional intake and daily exercise. The Good Measures program then makes suggestions for better food choices, healthy snacks and increased activity to help users meet personal health goals.
The Good Measures program can be conveniently downloaded to an iPhone and is also accessible through the web. It provides personalized feedback in the form of a Good Measures index, a single number from one to 100. An index closer to 100 means a person is meeting more of their nutritional goals.
"The Good Measures program is essentially a personal health coach, working with each individual every day to help them meet their nutritional and fitness goals," said Jenn Natalie, assistant director, Capital Blue. "We are excited to offer seminars conducted by Good Measures team members to personally show how this life-changing program works.""We are excited to be working with the team at Capital Blue to bring Good Measures and the Good Measures Index to the Saucon Valley. The Capital Blue retail store offers a terrific setting for helping people to get started with this contextual approach to eating, exercise and weight management," said Stefany Shaheen, Good Measures chief operating officer. The Good Measures seminars will be held:
