About

Overview

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 working toward their goals. 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.
