For Your Health


Amber Info updated


Eating healthy doesn’t mean never indulging in ice cream or pizza again.  It’s choosing healthier options most of the time.  Choose a wide variety of fruits vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, as well as 3 servings of dairy each day.  Limit added sugars and fats, especially saturated and trans fats. 

The general rule of thumb is to choose healthier options 80% of the time.  That leaves you plenty of opportunities to indulge at your favorite restaurant or split a dessert with a friend. 

As you get readjusted to Tech, remember to take care of yourself.  Eat well, sleep adequately, and make the most of your free time.  You’ll find that when you take time for your needs, you’re better able to manage school, work, and all the other fun stuff that heads your way! 


You can meet with Amber Johnson, the dietitian at Health Promotion in Stamps Health Services! Call 404-894-9980 to make an appointment for $5!
