Waist Disposal Challenge

Kevin Trent of the Rotary Club of South Perth /Burswood
needs assistance at the weigh in
Here you go Kev, some tips for you

The good news is that small changes to your portions
can make a big difference to your weight.
At home
Use a smaller dinner or snack plate
so you’re likely to eat less even if you fill your plate
Serve meals onto individual plates instead of having all the food
on the table to minimise the temptation of going back for seconds or thirds
Freeze leftover portions
Avoid eating directly from the package (which may be enough for a whole family!).
Instead put the amount you intend to eat in a bowl.
People tend to eat more food when it is easily accessible.
Try replacing the lolly or biscuit jar with a fruit bowl
and store snack foods in places that are hard
to get to like the back of the top shelf in the pantry.
Then you can move healthier food to eye level.
To help you get to know what one serve looks like,
fill a measuring cup with the proper sized portion of pasta, rice,
then empty it onto a plate.
Take note of how much of the plate is covered.
Eating out
Consider ordering entrée sized meals with a side of salad or vegetables as required
Avoid ‘upsizing’ your meal (for example at fast food outlets)
Avoid eating until you feel overly full.
Eat until you feel satisfied. This may mean not finishing what you have ordered,
but if you are able, ask to take the leftovers home
Share a dessert with a friend or family member or better still,
avoid dessert altogether.
When food shopping
Avoid shopping when you are hungry –
you may find things in your trolley that you wouldn’t normally buy
Be aware of large packages – the larger the package,
the more you are likely to consume so consider buying smaller packages
or dividing up the contents of a larger package into smaller containers.
Tip: Keep a food diary for a week to find out what you currently eat and drink.
Write down everything you eat and drink each day,
including the amount you have.
You will be able to see where you can make some healthier choices.

New Generations Exchange

Short Term Exchange Programs for young people have been around for years
- catering for individuals and groups.
But some age brackets have not been covered,
which is why New Generation Exchange (NGE) has been introduced,
to close the gap between classic Youth Exchange (LTE and STE)
and Group Study Exchange (GSE).
NGE therefore caters for a new age group and is open to young adults

between the ages of 18 and 25.
The objective of this program - as with the others -

is to create goodwill and international understanding
through cultural immersion and vocational training.
While in their host country, participants will spend time observing

and/or interning in a local business, profession or other vocational setting.
NGE participants receive an orientation before they go on their exchange.
New Generations Exchange participants attend Rotary meetings

and will join local Rotarians for social and cultural activities.
NGE participants will also attend Rotaract meeting,
if there is a Rotaract club in their host city.
A New Generations Exchange can consist of 1 - 3 participants

going on exchange at together, with an equal number coming to the host District
As a part of the application process,
candidates for a New Generations Exchange
will be required to fill out an application. form
The program is open for students or young professionals between the ages of 18 and 25. Youngsters who have just completed their secondary education

and started further education,
or who want a taste of a vocation which interests them
before applying to university or college.
In other words, they want to know what vocational education

may hold in store for them.
Other applicants are youngsters who want to develop their skills and experience

within a given vocation (unpaid), engage in social work, etc.
NGE involves a commercial aspect in accordance with the applicant's career plans

and aspirations,
and of course aspects of cultural understanding and tourism during their stay.
New Generation Exchange can vary in length,

usually 2-3 weeks and maximum is 3 months.
Candidates can depart any time of year depending on agreement with host club.
