A session of the OFF Program, a weight loss plan for women sponsored by the Northern Kentucky Health Department, begins on Monday, April 1. OFF, which stands for Outsmarting Female Fat, is specially designed for women who want to lose weight by making long-term lifestyle changes. The program is led by a Registered Dietitian from the Health Department and deals with all aspects of weight control, healthy eating and exercise.
The OFF program will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Mondays, from April 1 through June 10 (with no class on Memorial Day, May 27), in the lower level conference room of the Health Department’s District Office, 610 Medical Village Drive, Edgewood, Ky.
The class is open to women living or working in Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton Counties.
