If your students need to purchase the online access to Profile Plus standalone, they can go to www.cengagebrain.com to obtain an instant access code. NEW! Take control. Reach your goals. Experience Profile Plus. Profile Plus is a brand-new tool that not only allows your students to track their diet and activity, but also walks them through the key steps in behavior change. After completing a Wellness Profile, students are able to select areas where they would like to make a healthy lifestyle change, and create a behavior change contract. This contract helps students to focus on goals toward which they would like to work. The program guides the student through defining the objectives, enabling, and reinforcing factors related to the area(s) of wellness on which they are focused. Students identify obstacles and choose a reward for successful behavior change. Throughout the process students are encouraged to examine and reflect upon their current behaviors. Instructors can assign and review student work in the form of reports and labs that can be submitted through the system. In addition to tracking behavior change, students can track their diet and physical activity. Analyzing the nutritional value of the foods they eat will help them adjust their diets to reach personal health goals—all while gaining a better understanding of how nutrition relates to, and impacts, their lives. The Profile Plus diet tracker includes a 20,000+ food database that includes the latest Dietary Reference Intakes, goals and actual percentages of essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Use Profile Plus in all your Introductory Health classes to show students how the concepts they learn in the text and in class relate to their personal health goals and apply to their daily lives.

After completing a Wellness Profile questionnaire, Profile Plus will rate the level of concern for eight different areas of wellness, helping you determine the areas where you are most at risk. It then helps you put together a plan for positive change by helping you select a goal to work toward – complete with a reward for all your hard work. Profile Plus will help you apply the behavior modification principles discussed in your textbook to your life through weekly tracking. In addition to the behavior change process, Profile Plus provides tools for you to track your diet and physical activity. Profile Plus includes a track diet feature with a 20,000+ food database, personalized Daily Recommended Intakes, and actual percentages of essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. You can create your own personal profile and use this information to adjust your diet and gain a better understanding of how nutrition relates to your personal health goals. The dynamic interface makes it easy for you to track the food you eat for as many days as you like. Profile Plus can help you gain insights into the decisions you make about personal wellness, nutrition, and fitness while helping you understand how these decisions can be applied in class.
