Conducting Qualitative Interviews In Healthy Lifestyle Programs

healthy lifestyle program

The Healthy Lifestyle Program consists of six monthly sessions exploring various aspects of building a healthy lifestyle from the inside out. Each session will concentrate on a particular health topic such as goal setting, exercise, nutrition, healthy daily activities, and energy balance. These topics are meant to be flexible; they don’t have to be restricted to a time frame or specific exercises.

During the first month of the Healthy Lifestyle Program, the dietitian will go over what a healthy lifestyle really is. This includes answering questions like, what does the word healthy really mean to you? What about exercise? Is it more important to maintain a low fat, low cholesterol, low sodium, low sugar, low carb diet or is it all about cardiovascular conditioning?
