Teen Life Conference

Every year Touro University puts on something called Teen Life Conference, in which local high school students (few hundred) come to our campus and we have tables with health information, lectures, exercise classes, rock wall etc... to teach the kids about health and being healthy and eating healthy, an all around HEALTHY LIFESTYLE. I was in charge of putting together our booth on "What is a PA?" and "Confidentiality." I also gave a presentation on "Sugar in Soda, and replacing it with water!" So I wanted to share with you some of my highlights.

In one 12 oz. can of soda there is:
207 Calories
40 g of sugar
Forty grams of sugar is the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar.
10 teaspoons of sugar is the equivalent of 20 sugar cubes
Drinking one Coke a day for a year results in the consumption of 32 pounds of sugar.
A 120 lb individual will burn 100 calories for every mile ran (9 min mile). In order to burn 1 lb of fat (=3500 calories), the individual must run 35 miles.

One 12 oz can of soda a day can translate into 18 lbs of fat gained per year (HOT)!!! Is one 12 0z can of soda worth running for two miles?

hope you all enjoyed a bit of my lecture, there was more on water, but this is all I have time to do now!

I am procrastinating studying for my test, what's new right!

Every day I am in this program, I get more and more amazed at the intricacy of the human body, the amount of knowledge we do and don't have and what a miracle it is. All the while getting excited about my decision, but more and more fearful of the massive responsibility it has. I have never been more aware of the phrase "To much has been given, much is required!" Sometimes it seems like toooooo much, but I keep also learning over and over again that the Lord provides ways for us all to accomplish what it is we have been asked to do and His burden in light, and in a really weird way knowing this has made my mountains climbable:) I know this is a bit personal, but just wanted to share! I think about you all often and hope you are all AMAZING!!! Happy March!

Love, Kim
