Employee-HealthMost people spend more than half of their waking hours in the workplace. And although most employers allow people to stay home if they are not feeling well, people generally go to work no matter how poorly they feel. Sometimes we don’t feel like going to work. Maybe you didn’t get enough sleep because your child was having a ‘rough’ night.
Perhaps you have a headache because of that extra glass of wine the night before. That nagging tickle in your throat is starting to feel as if you have a cold coming on… sometimes we don’t feel that we are operating on all cylinders but we go to work anyway. It’s no secret that when you don’t feel 100%, you have a more difficult time giving 100%.

M_J_PicA key to Karēlia Health’s rich member experience is our practice of only employing Registered Dietitians (RD) to teach our nutrition education curriculum. We work with a large network of dietitians across the country and have decided to start a new blog series highlighting these important professionals who share Karēlia’s mission of helping people lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.  Karēlia Health believes in the power of face-to-face engagement and education, which is why we recruit dietitians local to the community in which they are teaching. 

We are very fortunate to work with some highly qualified and effective RDs. MJ Costello has been teaching the Karēlia Health program for almost 4 years and we took some time to talk with her about her experiences. MJ is a retired Lieutenant Commander with the US Naval Reserve. She received her BS in Dietetics at Drexel University and her Master’s Degree in Public Management at Carnegie Mellon University. 

Since joining the Karēlia team in 2012, MJ has made a considerable difference in our client’s lives. She has used nutrition to help employees achieve some incredibly impressive results:

62% lost weight (total pounds lost in 3 years for 142 participants: 719.1 lbs)

80% reduced their Total Cholesterol (total reduction: 3,970 mg/dL)

58% reduced their Glucose (total reduction: 1,549 mg/dL)

Drops like these translate into significant reductions in the risk for chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes.
