HL 524 – Ergogenic Issues students are seeking volunteers from the ESU community (administration, faculty, and staff) for an upcoming practical experience project – Dietary and Physical Activity Analysis.

The purpose of this project is to provide our Health Promotion students with experience in analyzing a client's diet and physical activity. The primary goal for our students will be to provide you with an accurate analysis of your current eating habits as well as some suggestions for making improvements to your diet, if any are warranted.  Additionally, your physical activity will be analyzed, simply in terms of caloric expenditure. This will be useful in determining your daily caloric needs which are important if you are wishing to lose or gain weight, or even just remain at your current weight.  

In order to participate in this project, you will simply be required to commit to keeping a Food Diary for seven consecutive days, as well as a simple record of physical activity.

If you are interested, please contact Dr. Paul Luebbers at
