Fat Tuesday Is Fit at Botsford

Novi, Mich. (February 1, 2010)---Fat Tuesday is coming and for many that involves eating paczkis and forgetting their fitness goals. A typical five-ounce paczki contains about 420 calories, 25 or more grams of fat and is loaded with refined carbohydrates that are directly converted into fat. That’s why the Botsford Center for Health Improvement (BCHI) is offering its 3rd Annual Fit Tuesday. The day is devoted to helping you exercise off those paczkis and to learn simple recipe substitutions for healthier eating. 
 
Stop by BCHI on Tuesday, February 16, between 10:00 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. for free group exercise classes. Location: 39750 Grand River Avenue just west of Haggerty Road in Novi. No reservations needed.
