UCI Campus Recreation, in conjunction with Be Smart About Safety, presents a series of events to educate and encourage us toward healthier behaviors: Health & Fitness Fridays.

UCI Campus Recreation - Health & Fitness Friday - Chef Jessica
Each Health and Fitness Fridays event will include a light lunch and a presentation from an engaging expert on a current health topic. All events will be held at the ARC at 12pm, on the third Friday of every month from November to May. You're welcome to use the ARC Facilities before or after each event for free. We will announce the speaker and topic near the first of each month, then please sign up for the Friday that you plan to attend through UC Learning Center.

Friday, 11/17 - Eating Right vs. Dieting
Lincoln Tom, MD (Family Medicine)

 “Diets are marketed as ways to lose weight quickly, but what they don’t advertise is that maintaining the diet is just as difficult as starting one. There are much healthier ways to manage eating right. Rather than following the next fad diet, come learn tips and ways to integrate healthy change in to your everyday so the impact will be long lasting.”
